For lace-up boots you cen get lace-in zippers. They are available at uniform shops that specialise in police & military stuff. I used to ride in Hitec magnum boots which are very similar to the Danners. I was about to give up on the boots because the lacing and unlacing was driving me mad, even when I only had to do it once a day. The lace-in zippers made life SO much more pleasant and I rode in these boots another year. I still have them but they now look like they've been through serious combat and my current 'real' motorcycle boots fit around the levers better due to smaller soles.
