I have been wearing Bates Ultra-Lite Tactical with side zipper for over 3 years and they are comfortable and holding up well. They may be cheap(er) than a Danner but are definitely a good quality boot. I never had an issue on any of my bikes with shifting interference. Comfy all day, light, semi-breathable yet water and wind resistant, affordable and available nearly everywhere. I commute to work 100 miles a day and wear them all day long. If they can stand up to Police, Fire, Emt and Corrections, they can handle a couple hours of ride time and a day at the office.
