Although I am considering getting a pair of Dainese Axial boots because if they are good enough for Valentino Rossi, they are good enough for me. Plus they are less obtrusive under jeans and don't squeak (I have a hilarious story about me in the Library of Congress. The acoustics of that place are great
The other 2% of the time I wear a pair of Frye Harness boots. They aren't very safe and if things go sour, they would probably fly off my feet but I love them still.
Recently I ran across a French company called Vitesse and they have a boot called the Hunt.
I think these are great, safer than the ole Fryes plus they go well with my favourite jacket, a Dainese Stripes model. One of these days I will pick up a pair.
As far as jeans, I don't really wear any motorcycle specific pants and just ride in 501s or something like that. Its is the only area where my gear nazi-ism falls flat. I do have a 1 piece leather racing suit but I rarely wear it. This year I plan on buying some leather pants to zip with my jackets.
