What shoes do you wear when riding in the summer?

Looking for my first pair of riding boots (currently I'm just using some leather combat boots) for summer conditions.

What do you wear?

pics would be appreciated....

I have these. Wear them all day when I ride the bike to work, they have decent ankle protection for a street shoe/boot and are comfortable. The bottoms are pretty slick though, something to consider.

I wear my Nike running shoes.

Saving up for some A* boots look like tennis shoes but are angle high. And apparently super comfertable

OP, get a nice pair of perforated boots and you'll be good. Go with the full length boot for protection, it really isn't that much "hotter" in comparison to riding shoes.

Daily riding: A* SMX Plus Vented - easily fit under my slim fit jeans
"Serious" Riding: Sidi Vortice Air

I really like the Sidi ST Air Boots

I wear a pretty basic pair of leather steel-toed boots right now, but will be getting a pair of the S-MX2s this summer.
