    have a tall pair of wolverine leather work boots. used to wear tennis shoes but i got real tired of pulling grass out from around my ankles...wanted something I could wear tall socks with without looking like a dbag. the boots hold up nice, the tread is just worn down enough the dog sh*t doesn't stick in there for very long hahaha.

    Steel toe for me every day from here on out. I dropped a 2x10x12 on my big toe a few months back on the one day I decided to wear tennis shoes because I had an easy day planned. It bled for three days, stayed swollen for about 2 weeks and I finally lost the toenail tonight. Made me rethink what an easy day is. Now I wear my redwings everywhere I go just in case.

    I have also had a fully loaded tandem axle crane truck drive onto my foot and park years ago when I was a mechanic. Steel toes could be the only thing that saved me. It still broke my foot but the boot held up long enough to get the drivers attention to get him off of my foot. ( He parked and started filling out paperwork). The weight was enough to start to collapse the steel toe section of the boot.

    My point is things happen when you don't expect it. Most of the time your not goiong to get hit in the eye when you are trimming but you still wear safety glasses right? Protect yourself because if you get hurt it is your business and your paycheck that is effected unless you have employees that can pick up the slack.

    I wear my tennis shoes for regular mowing, but for landscaping and cleanups and stuff I wear my Brahma steel toe boots.

    I just wear a pair of boots, not necessary steel toe, but just boots I have for hiking, I actually prefer them to regular shoes for most lawn work.
