cortech latigo vs JR super street?

So I am looking for riding boots for next season and I am undecided. I like the lower profile of the super streets but the full shin protection of the latigos is awesome...

Joe Rocket super streets
Joe Rocket Super Street Boots - Street Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore

Cortech latigo air
Cortech Latigo Air RR Boots Black from SportbikeTrackGear.com

I want something that is great while riding but also comfortable to walk around in while I am off the bike. The price is pretty similar so that's not a huge dilemma for me. I am just a street rider so I don't need a full race boot, but I will want to walk around.

Thanks!!

I have the Latigos and seeing as they're the only pair of boots I've had I can say that I like them. I'm sure there are better ones out, but they work for me. Been to a trackday in them and rode around a few times.

Cortech latigo air

Of-coarse this is not my first option ,, but since you have your eye's on one of the 2
