What footware do you wear when you ride?

I try to wear workboots when I ride but I wear lowtop simicasual work shoes to and from work.
I wish I could find some dress style shoes that cover the ankle

+1 Sidi Vertebra 2 on the street, Vetrebra race on the track.
Side note; My race boots did a great job 2 years ago when I caught a false neutral going into turn one at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and wound up sliding feet first all the way to 2.

I have a pair of skechers boots that come up about 4 or 5 inches above my ankle. They were 35 dollars, and they pretty decent riding boots. They aren't steal towed, but they have something hard up there.

The Vert 2s were replaced by the new Vertigo and Vertigo Corsa, also great boots!
I'm breaking in a pair of Corsas right now to replace my battle worn Vert Race boots.

Someone really needs to learn to stop making assumptions about money. I've had them polo boots since my first year in college homey, which was about 9 years ago. So, if you wanna buy them off of me, I'll be glad to put the money towards some riding boots to make you happy.
