What type of boots or shoes do you wear in your shop? Well I might get beat for saying this, but in the summer I wear sandals and winter I were a trail shoe.. I wear a safety boot all day at work and just like my feet out in the fresh air.. But I also woodwork outside.. Lucky for me I have never dropped anything on my foot..

Wood is designed to be made into what ever your mind can think of.... Never stop working towards perfection...

Running shoes in the shop. Sometimes I wear boots when I go to the sawmill to get a fresh supply of Walnut.

I wear a pair of New Balance running shoes daily around the house, including in the shop.
A pair of comfortable, lightweight, safety shoes would be nice if the price is not too high.

I wore steel toed safety shoes sold at sears when I worked at equipment rental shop. I was the first to use them back in the 60's. They saved me several times from injury. I can't say for sure but have used probably at least 12 to 15 pairs over the years. As a testimonial I took an old pair to a 30 ton arbor press to see what would happen to them when crushed and when the press reached around 24 tons pressure there was a loud bang...the steel toe was pressed through the sole... I then cut away the leather and found the steel toe was not even dented or distorted. After that demonstration, everyone started using steel toed safety shoes!

I use whatever is available- as long as it is a closed-toe solid shoe. Currently I use a recycled pair of dress shoes because the leather provides the protection I need and the soles have enough tread to avoid slips.

Never really thought about it to be honest. I just wear whatever I happen to have on, usually sneakers. I don't normally deal with heavy things that would break my toes.

I wear standard insulated work shoe. I ride a MC/bike and they recommend over the ankle shoes, and I like walking in them better than light /flimzy sneakers!

If I am doing sheet metal I wear steel toed boots, if in the wood shop then it is combat type boots, at my desk then it is Sketchers deck shoes.

I usually wear whatever I have on unless I'm working with something particularly heavy - then it's regular work boots.

Indoor Soccer shoes

I have a linoleum floor in my shop. It is very slippery, so I wear a pair of indoor soccer shoes that grip the floor very well, even with sawdust on it.

Ain't technology grand........when it works.

Shoes

I wear Nike sneakers. I'm a 67 year old disabled Vietnam vet and stand on a concrete floor to do my Woodworking and wood turning hobby. My feet and back hurt after standing on that hard floor. I've tried many kinds, but nothing seems to help.
