Foot Wear?

What do you guys normally have strapped to your hooves on a daily basis? I think a majority usually have just tennis shoes but I'm curious. Tennis shoes, Regular boots, Steel Toe Boots, etc. What do you wear and what brands?

light hiking shoes with gore tex. Keeps the feet dry. The hikers are just stiff enough and light for moving around the lawns.

Redwing steel toes for me. Looking for something that will keep my feet a little cooler and drier but not going to give up the steel.

Yah its something you have to get used to with steel toes and a nice ankle support. One thing I find funny is if you switch over to a pair without you'll do something stupid like place a manhole on your toes without thinking .
