I wear Ad Tec square toe motorcycle boots. They look just like HD boots, but without the HD logos on the, so they were like $300 cheaper!! I also have big feet (15's) and I feel your pain when it comes to our options of the limited selection.

I have a pair of Milwaukee Trooper boots that work nice, but my favorites are a cheap pair of work boots from Walmart. I like them because of the steel toe, which makes the bike shift so much better. I'd really like to find a pair that you can wear with khakis at work and not have them look like boots.

I have a similar pair of Sidi boots (plus two shorter pair of boots for hot riding). The only problem with the Sidis is that they are designed for sport bike riding where your feet and legs are angled back. You're fighting their shape a bit on the 9. I wore them on a 2,000 mile ride last year and that was the only problem other than they are warm. Boots, like jackets and gloves, require more than one pair to deal with all riding conditions.

I have this same boot, it's an older pair, but the Sidi have been the best boot I have ever ridden with. They offer great protection (actual field tested), built to last and all day walk around comfort. Sidi products are well worth the money imo.

I bought these for the days I ride to work. They don't look too bad with laces. The velcro strap keeps the laces out of the gear shift and break levers and the velcro is high enough up that it's usually above my cuff so they look pretty much like normal shoes.

They're also waterproof, have soles and heels that won't crush and they're pretty comfortable so you can wear them all day. I like Big-Boy 109's Sidi's too. I may still get a pair for cold weather riding on weekends.
