Look better than sneakers...but if you want the best protection you should look into a race style boot.

Dainese makes good stuff, and you can see the ankle protection which will be a major plus should you have an "oh sh*t" moment. Race boots are better protection BUT, they're not comfortable to walk around in; these are a little shorter and look hinged. So they'll be decent for around town. I'd say do it.

There are plenty of good riding boots around that aren't racer boots. SIDI makes a bunch of street riding boots that are both comfortable to walk around in and are good in the protection department. I suggest to try out the SIDI Sport Tepor. I just got in a pair and I love it!!! This boot is designed to be worn UNDER the pant legs. Of course SIDI also makes OVER the pant legs style too.

Get a pair of riding boots that are at least 7 inches above the ankle. That way you'll know for sure that they won't come off in a crash. I never understand why anybody would wear a half-boot for riding.

Race boots are great for what they are but they aren't hot for street riding. People wear them but why do that when you can get actual street riding boots? You can walk around in them, you can maneuver your bike around with them and don't worry about slipping on slick surfaces. And when you take a fall, they still protect your feet and lower legs well.

The right gears for the right job.

Even for canyon cutting, I'd still wear my street riding boots. I don race boots for the track, and that's it.

Check out all these SIDI street boots. And yes, even SIDI make some of those silly ass half-boots and sneakers.

I'd take those over any 'street' boot any time. F the street boot.

Hell, anything is better than the guys who are riding in white lace-up athletic shoes. I shudder when I think what havoc shoelaces can wreak...

Depending on how hard the toe is, I'd say they're a decent boot for everyday riding. Not hard, fast riding though.
