Wow, you have a great attitude, and I sure hope you are up and riding sooner rather than later.
People tease me because I wear my AlpineStars heavy "adventure" style boots everywhere I go. They def. look silly when the riding pants come off and I'm walkin' around in the boots and shorts.
That being said, back when I picked up folks for a living (Sheriff's Flight Crew medic) I couldn't tell you how many tennis shoes and low boots I retrieved for victims of moto crashes. Usually they still had a foot in them....
Ride safely my friend.
