    This may sound like a wierd question:
    What type of footwear do you guys wear while your working?
    I use basketball sneakers when cutting and doing leaf clean ups.
    Why because if I step in a hole or something atleast my ankle has some protection. workboots arn't comfortable enough for so much walking!
    I wear work boots when doing installs.

    Timberland Hiking Boots...not a work boot
    Most of the guys around here have been changing over to them it seems...very comfortable & appropriate looking.

    $20 pair of steel toed tennis shoes. Less than a year old and they are falling apart and ready for the trash. I am considering a pair of Doc Martins for $89. Last year was mounting my 52" deck on my Walker (about 350 lbs.) and came down near toes. It caught the edge of my tennis shoes, but did not get the toes. After that incident I swear I always wear steel toes. A friend of mine at work was trashing his steel toes. Before we trashed he drove a 4,000 forklift on top of the toe end of the shoe. He then cut the steel out of the shoe......no damage to the steel plate what so ever.

    I just buy a pair of those cheapo hunting boots you see at walmart, they seem too give a full season of service and then die! Ive never had much luck with really expensive boots, they have always made my feet hurt or fall apart in under a season.
