Commuting to work question

For those of you who commute to work on your bike, what shoe/boot do you wear? If you wear boots, do you wear those boots (if so what brand/style) all day or do you bring more traditional work shoes to change into?

I use my motorcycle boots and leave a pair of shoes at the office.

Military Surplus combat boots... I wear them both on the bike and around the office... but we have a lax dress code here.

I also have some Fluevog Angel boots, but save those for more "formal" occasions.

I'm the same as Colin. I leave my dress shoes at work and wear my Oxtars back and forth.

I bought and use Sidi Way Tepor (they are actually gore-tex for the membrane). With a good pair of gel insoles... they work fine for all day.

I wear Oxtar Matrix 2 boots and have a pair of shoes at work to change into. I'll probably get something lighter for the summer months to ride in.

I wear a roadcrafter 1 pc. suit over my pants/shirt, wear construction boots and keep my dress shoes in the side bags. I keep the jacket at work, as I've not found a convenient way to keep a jacket looking nice on a motorcycle.

I walk in, unzip the roadcrafter, play Mr. Rodgers with the boots/shoes and start my day.

Same. I have the Oxtar Matrix v.1 with the funky flap at the bottom. These boots are so good, they refuse to break or wear out so I can justify buying the v.2 boots.

The problem is this "work" that you go to. Just stop going there and wear what you please.
