Oops! Too late. I made the poll already. But for this Forum, maybe we can assume that most wear boots? I've always worn boots since at least '90, but I can't neccessarily say they have always been true motorcycle boots throughout the years. Only recently.

THAT is why I can't get rid of those, forgot all about that. But no callouses on my feet... I wear boots 99.999% of the time. I would just feel nekkid if I wear tennis shoes on the bike

I do have a small one. I wear street bot all the time. I think it's just from the leather moving on the top of my foot. I wear dress socks, as I need to change shoes when I get to work. It probably wouldnt happen with real socks.
