    I wear shorts with hiking boots all summer unless I'm doing tree work or laying pavers, then its Carhartt pants and Georgia logger boots which is what I wear for the other 3 seasons. As for crocs and sandals, I don't think I could take a contractor seriously who showed up to my house wearing crocs or some sort of man-dals. If you're going to the beach or lounging around its one thing, but if you're out to work you need to look prepared to put in a days work.

    Long light weight (cargo) pants, tee shirt or polo, steel toed boots. If it's really hot I may wear shorts on a mulch job, but they match the uniform pants.
    Might do away with the steel toe this year. Needing a new pair so I'll be on the hunt.

    How does it feel when you hit your foot with the water? Lol not good I know. I wore cross one day last year I was pulling bushes out of the ground and then washing all the dirt out of the roots into the ground. It was too muddy for shoes if boots so I wore crocs and shorts and just sprayed my legs and feet off when I was done.

    Or you could have just sprayed off your boots and then your legs and feet would be clean and your boots would cleaned off from the mud. Everybody wins.
