Try a pair of TCX (used to be Oxtar, company just changed names) Infinity or BMW Santiago boots (the Santiagos are made by TCX, they're pretty much the same boot). They're as comfortable for walking as any of the various pairs of combat, work, dress, and hiking boots I've owned and better than most. Only downside for walking is that they're relatively heavy. Being GoreTex they're probably hot as well, I've never worn 'em with it over 95 but they were OK then.
