Sidi B2s they're comfortable and don't make you look like a Power Ranger.
I keep them in stock if you want to try some on.

Icon Standard, I bought them on sale from Motorcycle Superstore for $50. It's a big heavy boot but doesn't look out of place in an office environment. They make them in tan also.

I have the Vega Matrix boots. They were cheap enough, more comfortable than most tennis shoes, and look pretty good with slack/dress shirt.

also look into the joe rocket lineup, decent protection but very high fashion styled. Puma makes some catchy looking ones as well but they wont protect you worth nothing (from the looks of them, I personally havent tried those on yet.)

+1 Buy riding boots that are good for riding and just keep an old pair of shoes at the office.

I know a bunch of people that don't ride that wear comfortable shoes to work and wear their work shoes in the office.

Tried on some Sidi's Saturday at Motorcycles Unlimited. I think they were the Vertigo Air boots. Looked a lot better in person and fit great and seemed comfortable. The zipper made them easy to put on. I read some excellent reviews online also. Probably gonna pick them up when I head back to get my pants that are on order. I'll keep my work shoes at work so I can have the added protection for my feet when riding to work.

I took your advice and ordered these. Got them about a week ago and they are awesome, especially for the price. Very comfortable to wear for everyday riding.

Check out Icon they have a few different pairs that come in black or brown. I have the Field Armor Chukka Boots and I wear them everyday. I really like them. Whats nice is they're short too so they just go right above the ankle.

Boots look stupid with khakis or slacks. Doesn't matter if they are motorcycle boots, cowboy boots, alligator boots...all look stupid. There's a reason you don't see any tailors carrying boots in their store.
