    I have no idea what kind of shoes i should get for this up comming mowing season. I mostly mow lawns with a 21" toro, and do other small jobs. I don't want to get a pair of reg. running shoes, or get a pair of heavy boots. What do you guys wear? And also i need to find a ton of good socks to wick away sweat! Any help is great.

    I use the 4" lawn grips.
    Comfortable, light weight in terms of actual weight - not construction, certainly grip well - and despite the rubber bottoms the leather uppers do breathe well.

    What's wrong with work boots? Keeping my feet protected and some support for my feet and ankles is very important. Also, having an aggressive tread on the sole to keep good traction on difficult terrain is necessary. A good pair of work boots provides all these features, and will last an entire season, perhaps a bit longer.

    I just wear $30 Brahma Wal-Mart boots. I go through maybe 2 pairs a year. They did hurt my feet when I first started wearing them. But now I would never go back. I love the ankle support.

    I like the running shoes, light-weight, breathe well and super comfy.
