I struggled with this same question. After years of trying to find something that will work, I now commute in the outstanding Tourmaster Solution boots and store a pair of slip on work shoes under my desk, and swap out for the Tourmasters during the day. :) Do NOT buy the Alpinestars Parlor Boots. I thought, hey, I can wear those to the office on my commute and it will ensure that I am ATGATT, and no one will know I'm wearing a motorcycle boot! Well, I'm an idiot. They have almost no protective value, probably less than a pair of high tops. And after a month of wearing them, they started to fall apart, with the glue holding the upper to the sole disappearing. They are really uncomfortable, a tad too small in the toebox but somehow they once actually fell off when I clumsily tripped. They have little chance of staying on in a crash. Cost $175. The Parlor is just a terribly, terrifically, spectacularly bad piece of motorcycle gear for a bad price. Lesson learned - wear a real boot and change at the office.
