I wouldnt want to go with the lowered non-folding rear-sets, I'd be to afraid sliding on them in turns.
The whole idea of a fixed footpeg is to protect the bike (and, in turn, possibly your leg/ankle) in a crash. The act of crashing/sliding will destroy the footpeg, but they are inexpensive to replace.

And if your fear is the peg touching down, causing the rear tire to lever off the ground and cause a lowside, my response would be to learn how to judge your lean angle better (not trying to be mean or critical) and know your machine's limits intimately.
