Harley style boots vs touring / street riding boots

I was looking at getting some Teknic boots (cheap I know) to wear when riding as opposed to my big logger harley type boots. Is there a comfort difference that is substantial or is it just a bunch of hooplah?

I had a pair. Very comfortable. Not very waterproof.

I had a pair of the HD logger style boots and loved them. That is until I got my LT. On a bike with floorboards they're great but with that heel, I kept catching them on the footpeg when going to put my foot out.

I think you'll like the Teknic if it's got a flat or more rounded heel. It'll let you move your foot more on the peg.
