What kind of price range are they?
Those are about $85.
I wear Keens every day from about April - November and keep a pair of tennis shoes in the van in case I need to do something where I'll be getting a lot of loose dirt in the sandals. The Keens are fine for digging, it's the dirt getting under my feet I can't stand.
I think I look plenty professional in a button up, quick dry company logo'ed shirt, khaki shorts and the almost $100 sandals. Nobody really expects someone that's going to be working in sprinklers, walking through wet grass in 95+ degree heat (it's topped out over 100 here 11 days in a row now) to be wearing steel toes. Honestly, I don't really think steel toes make sense for a repair tech and have a real hard time coming up with a situation where having them on would save your foot at a residential or small commercial service call.
