Riding to work in nice Shoes

I tried searching but boots and shoes don't bein up the topic I need. I would like to ride to work, but I have a nicer pair of boots that will scuff from shifting, and I don't want that to happen. I wear jeans, nice boots, a nice belt and a polo's to work everyday and I'm tired of being restricted to my truck. It's hard to carry a backpack with boots, and I don't do dress shoes. It may not be possible but I wanted to see what you guys did...I suppose I could always be like the visa guys and put arm bands on my boots

I leave a pair of dress shoes and a few pressed shorts in my office at all times. That way I can take the bike any day I want and not have to lug a change of wrinkled clothes on the bike.

I have to wear a dress shirt with tie, so i use a waterproof backpack that can hold everything from a laptop, boots, and helmet. So i change at work when i get in. My co-worker bought some type of sleeve that fits over your shoe specifically for shifting so it wont mess up your shoes. It works well also.

Take your nice boots up to work and leave them there. I suggest riding in motorcycle specific boots.

I leave clothes at work. ride in street clothes. With this heat.. do you really wanna ride dressy? and come out stinky after? you can bathe in cologne after that but the scent of musk and musty stays.

Days I have to wear a suit, I drive in. Otherwise I go with mesh overpants, a jacket, and these:

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ivo-Boots.aspx

They looked weird at first, and certainly don't offer the protection of a full boot, but they are passable with jeans and have decent heel and toe protection. They are also all day comfortable to walk in after being broken in.
