    Duckies when it's wet. Been thinking of something steel toed just in case. Those blades cut real quick.

    A nice pair of brown red wings. Not sure if steel toe would help on a spinning blade. I would think not. Hope to never find out.

    I traded in my tennis shoes for a pair of waterproof Carhart work boots that I bought at Redwing Shoes for $110. I tried the Redwings and they were nice, but $170 for a pair of boots is a bit much for me. For me, the Carhart boots fit nicer and felt better that the Redwings.

    i normally wear tennis shoes, i used to wear work boots but they had a thin sole and thats how i ended up fracturing my foot in 4 places and took me out of work for 2 years. I have a pair of custom arch supports now so i can wear anything thin sole or not. tennis shoes or low cut work boots for me, kinda like a work shoe.

    I wear timberland pro's. They are a nice boot. Tennis shoes dont give me the support I need on my ankle; you can feel it after walking for the day.

    I wore Cat's before I wore the soles down on them, I have an uneven step so they wear funny. I chose not to spend the $200 plus on them this time around and when with a pair that I forget the name lol. They run a composite toe instead of steel. Mostly so u don't get cold feet in the winter.
