NB tennis shoes 7 days a week now, used to wear J&M's in my prior life. Wolverine boots when needed but not much now, usually just an old pair of NB from the corner of the closet.

Where I work it business dress. I had been rocking these for 3 months before my boss looked at me and asked "are you wearing sandals"?

Honestly they look like black dress shoes when black socks are accompanying them. I like them for work specifically because the open air shoes keep the feet from smelling. 11 hours in dress shoes and thin socks sure make for funky smells at night when you take off the shoes

Work shoes are some casual dress sketchers. After work shoes are LL Bean low cut trail hikers. i was destroying merrell, columbia and north face shoes in less then 6 months. these have held up the best thus far, i can pull nearly a year in them before I wear thru the tread/sole.

Not quite there, but close. Birkenstock's 95% of the time. For walking on rocks (river beach)/rain I'll put on a hard sole shoe.

Boy oh boy,

First time I've scanned down the posts here, I am definitely out of touch when it comes to foot wear. Let's see.................

2 pair of Merrill Gore-Tex one of which I bought in 2000 and they are still good.
1 pair 18" 'break Up' rubber boots by LaCross, 10 years and they'll need replaced soon.
1 pair Sorrell, I forget the type but they are the cabin / snowshoe boot and they have been good 4 years now.
2 Pair Merrill Yetti fleece lined slip on boot; one here 1 at cabin, warm & comfy.
1 pair Keen water sandal, I wear these on my waders while driving boat
1 pair Simms Rivershed wading boot with studs
1 pair 48" Michigan style ash & hide snowshoes, been in service since 1983 and good to go

The 14 year old Merrill Chameleon are my dress shoes They are so old that people think they are new.

Guys, eek! Definitely a crew that cares more about their rods than their footwear. Haha.

Chippewa boots are great. Have you seen their new stuff?

We need to get you out of those comfort shoes and into something a little dressier, though.

Sandals to wade most of the time.
Simms guide wear when waders are necessary.
Muck boots.
Orange skaters sneakers the rest of the time( easiest foot wear to slip off and on for fishing!)
