Help buying boots for my girlfriend

My girlfriend and I are looking for boots for her. She will only be a passenger and wont ride alone. She is very stylish person and pretty picky. She doesn't need track style stuff since she will only ride with me casually, something a little more urban that will be worn with jeans mostly and cute as she puts it. Ladies do you have any recommendations of what would be a good boot for her? thanks we appreciate it.

Don't carry $50 bills if u play poker.

Don't walk under ladders.

Don't buy your girl boots..... She will walk away with them.

If ur superstitious don't do it!

If you can't find something here, you are over thinking it.

Of course, you 'buying it' and her 'picking it out' is what we all expect will happen. Hope you are really tight with her as there are few things that make breakups worse than the girl walking away with all the stuff you bought her.

I'm no lady (or gentleman, for that matter. lol) but gettest thou to the nearest Cycle Gear. They usually have a ton of high-end women's riding boots on the clearance rack, because women just don't hang out in there like doods do.

True story.

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

OP stated she won't need a full on race boot since they only ride 2up on the street.

Who would spend over $300 on a boot that is heavy and looks like made for StarTrek show!? Especially when worn without a full race suit it would just look pathetic.

Me... Ankles are fragile, but I would also wear full leathers. It is cheaper than skin grafts.
I don't know about you, but my woman, though awesome and constantly amazes me with her grace, is made of the same flesh and bone as I. If she ever chooses to ride with me she will have equal or greater gear.

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

The only time a leader should use the word "I" is in the sentence "I have to shit"

+1 another vote for Daytona, safety wise there is nothing better.

Riding isn't a fashion show, when buying boots safety and protection should be the first and only priority.

that sounds like a good idea we kinda just peeked in there and didn't really look around at stuff.

I am just going to say sorry. Have no idea. I clicked on this thread thinking I saw the word boobs. I have nothing to contribute.
