Boots I can wear to work?
I'm just about fully geared up (proper jacket, helmet, gloves, dianese knee/shin guards) with the exception of proper boots. When riding now, I have a pair of work boots I use to wear for manual labor moments (ties well above the ankle, no steel toe, leather). However, I purposely do not ride to work because I cannot wear these boots there.
My issue is, I work on a college campus. I am a graduate student, a graduate assistant, I teach two classes, and I assist in numerous others. I DO NOT have a place where I can leave my stuff (no office, no locker, etc). I must wear (at bare minimum) khakis to work. I typically wear dress pants. I essentially live out of my bookbag for the 12 hours i'm on campus.
I would love to start riding to campus but cannot find a pair of boots I can wear comfortably all day, that come above the ankle, and that don't look like i'm a coal miner! I am walking or standing for the better part of the day and I must maintain a professorial appearance.
Am i asking for too much? If so, i just wont ride to campus. but on a day like today, when my car is acting up and the sun is out, my bike would have been ideal.
