The first time something whacks you in the shin at 70 mph you'll change your mind about boots.

The first time you look at road rash pictures you'll change your mind about wearing jeans.

Just my $0.02, but riding gear is about dealing with conditions while riding and possibly crashing, not while getting a Slurpee at the 7-11.

Your call, but low "riding shoes" are little more than sneakers.

Proper boots need not make you look like a Power Ranger. Just look for stuff marketed as "touring."
