+1. I always have at least one pair of shoes and a shirt at work.

I also carry a backpack sometimes with shoes/clothes.

This "shifter boot" works pretty good for me. No, that's not me wearing tennis shoes.

Company I work for provides a new pair of safety steel toe boots every year, and I get to pick out the style I like. A pair of heavy duty cowboy style steel toes make for excellent riding boots. I do wear moto boots occasionally, too, as they are plain black and don't look too out of place in an office environment.

Dress for the crash, not for work. lol

I'd keep my work boots at work, along with work shirts.

I ride in a pair of steel toe doc martens to and from work and have my dress shoes in my backpack. I crashed in these boots doing 55mph and they saved my feet.

I also need to dress business casual to work. I keep two pairs of nice dressing shoes at the office (black & brown) and carry my dressing slacks rolled inside the backpack, for the top is always use Polo shirts or dressing shirts, no ties (thank ).

The cowboy steel toes are not quite as well-padded as my "racing" moto boots, but I believe they offer better protection than my "touring" style moto boots.

My "dress shoes" are leather boots, they will hold up just fine for my 3 mile commute to work. I work 2 jobs, one for A&M and one at an engineering firm, so leaving a pair at work won't work for now, although I plan on this once I have a full time job.

And I'm not dressy, just leather boots, jeans, and a polo. I wear my perf leather over my polo

Some good ideas in here, I will try the wrist band, or maybe one of those protectors, I've never seen those before, thanks guys!

Boots with good soles will work fine.

Boots/shoes with those slippery hard leather soles...not so good.

I'm working an internship, and competing for a full-time job, appearance matters. aren't given at McDonalds perhaps, but in a real work environment, it looks bad to walk into a meeting with a client having scuffed up boots, I think most professionals will agree.

I don't want a scooter, I love motorcycles and was asking a simple question...People dress nice at work after riding motorcycles, just asking opinions on how its done so I can do the same with mine.

I'm trying to make a good first impression, perhaps I should get a side car for my ZX6, then I can take clients to lunch
