Have gone thru more than a few pairs searching for what you put on your 'wish list.'

Here's my suggestion: Tourmaster Response SC Road Boot.
They are not too high up on the shin (which can get uncomfortable real quick!), are breathable, yet waterproof and windproof.

Have done quite a bit of touring with them, as well as walking around in them all day at a destination - very comfortable and yet stylish.

Just got my latest Whitehorse Gear catalog in the mail, and noticed them for $119.99, but I bet you could shop around for a better deal yet.

Caution: Consider going one size up from what you normally wear - they ran a bit small.

I lucked out by having a friendly dealer at an International Motorcycle Show one year let me walk around in a pair for hours to confirm this - bought them on the spot - no regrets.
