Riding Boots or Riding Shoes?
i was curious what benefits would i get from a 3,4,500 + Riding boot, vs. a pair of , say "100" riding shoes. That is to say, what are the differences between boots and riding shoes, regardless of price.
i use my bike as a daily driver

Typically riding boots are going to be much more protective. They are usually stiffer so if you are a touring rider that will be doing a lot of walking also, they may not be as comfy as shoes. A lot will depend on your riding style. If you ride hard and push the limits then the boots are going to be safer in the event that something does happen. For a casual rider there is nothing wrong with a pair of the shoes. It really comes down to protection and comfort. Boots for the most part are more protective and shoes are going to be more comfortable. Based on how you ride it will be up to you which end of the spectrum you will want to go to.
