  • What is your footwear choice?

    I am taking my shoes off constantly throughout the day when going in and out of customer's houses. I don't mind it that much, but just wondering if anyone here has a favorite pair of shoes or boots they wear when working because of the ease of slipping on and off. Or, maybe they are just so comfortable that you don't want to go home because they feel so good while working LOL!

    When I'm doing bids, its slip ons. When I'm after materials, it may be sneakers or boots. When I'm working out doors, it Red Wing boots or Sorels, when its really cold out there. When I'm indoors (occupied home), I try to stay with sneakers.

          I prefer a nice Anne Klein Felder pump but you never know what the customer might think. As such I stick with my Wolverine 6" boots and ShuBee shoe covers.

              I like wearing slippers at home. For work, anything really comfortable and durable that still looks professional. I haven't decided yet, but I need new work shoes soon anyway, so this thread may be useful for ideas.
              Lately I wear black leather work boots, but they are not the most comfortable at all.

                    Depending on the situation it is also against OSHA. I had a carpenter that came to the job everyday (when we redid our childcare center) and took off his shoes. He would then lean pieces of wood against his foot as he cut with power tools

                        RedWing Model 953 with RedWing inserts.

                        One of the few made in America.

                        Smooth sole. No tread. Keeps the "Carolina Mud-Moon Boots" off of me and out of customers' houses.

                        For me, the only ones I've worn all day that are as comfortable as tennis shoes. Worn Rocky, Hermans, Texas Steer, Wolverines, etc.

                              I got him the socks for our anniversary present.

                              On the other note my fav footwear right now are the FLIP FLOPS OR if I'm with a client flip flop looking sandals.
