I also take boots off in and out of the office several times daily.
The whole logger boot lace up thing wasted 20% of my day.
But the 'old man' slip ons come off in the much when Im asking on a job site that's muddy.
I need a light but sturdy waterproof shoe that doesn't hold 3 pounds of mud in an overly aggressive nearly useless super lug on the sole, and I need it to be quick release, like ski bindings.

The all leather clunker, like those are ok, if you leave your boots on all day long.

In colorado, I used to wear Tony Lama Xtreme (TLX) but here, with the heavier socks Im almost always wearing, the slip on wellington type boot always takes the sock with it….annoying… Plus they look stupid with shorts… unless you're a hot chick.

They are currently 99. At amazon but wait for next 25. Off 100 purchase sale

vasque breeze

I just purchase the vasque breeze and they are light weight and very comfortable. A lot of my jobs consist of mostly walking behind the wlkr and so no need for steel toe. I give a reply on how long they last in the future. Oh yea, I had to buy them a half size up. I read others stating the same thing about the maker of the boot. It is true, buy bigger than norm. Thanks LCOs for all the replies. Great

I got my asolo's yesterday. $294. I told the sales guy I was wearing red wings and he said (that's cute). They had a boot with a metal shank running through the sole so it never flexes like for working on ladders.
