Hi, this is the MRS. here ;) I knew Bobby was working a lot and he's been running himself ragged with spring cleanups, and he's been complaining about his feet (guess I wasn't listening!), so I pulled these out of his shoes today...THIS is ridiculous!

(this is Bobby now!) Actually I have a question for you all. What type of shoes are you wearing out in the field?

Just bought a pair of Irish Setters (http://www.amazon.com/Irish-Setter-Trailblazer-Waterproof-Lace-up/dp/B001LK6UXY) today. Really comfortable, waterproof and great traction.

Depends on what I'm doing/wearing.

I haven't worn these yet, but I liked these when I tried them on. Good traction, light, waterproof, and safety toe. (Composite, not steel)
"Craftsman" from Sears. "Hawk" is the name of the boot.

For summer/shorts, I have some New Balance running shoes. I forget the model, but they have some aggressive tread on them and are made of that "mesh" material, so they are super light and they "breathe".

The boots I'm currently wearing are also "Craftsman" from Sears.
Model number in catalog 067-84993.
Soft toe "hiker". Waterproof leather, soft, & flexible. Supposed to have recycled tires in the soles for cushioning.
I'm no boot expert, but these are the most comfortable boots I've owned in this price range. I probably should buy more before they discontinue them since I have a hard time finding boots that fit well.

How tight are you making your shoelaces? Are you tightening them up all the way to the bottom or are you allowing a bunch of slippage of your foot in your shoe?

I wear a pair of Timberland Hikers.
I bought them Brand new at the Thrift Store for $7.00 :D
They were donated because they had no insoles, They were BRAND Frigin NEW still in the box attached together with a $145.00 price tag from a local shoe shop. I grab then up real fast.
I bought a pair of Gel insoles and off I went.
I have had them for two years now and they are still going strong.

More than any other product I've used in the past few years, I highly recommend Red Wings (http://www.redwingshoes.com). My father is a carpenter and he told me these are the best work boots you can get. So last year I bought a pair. I'm still wearing the same ones now, a year later. I should be able to get through this season with them as well, and maybe a little more. The key, though, is that they are not only durable, but also very comfortable. In fact, they are the most comfortable work boots I've ever worn. I had the same problem with the insoles in other boots, but these have not worn at all. I searched your location in WA, and it looks like there's a store closeby:

RED WING SHOE STORE
131 GAGE BLVD
RICHLAND, WA 99352
509-735-1707

This is the pair I have: 2240 Men's 6-inch Boot
They cost around 160, and it's well worth it. They sell only work boots so the sales people are very knowledgeable about the boots and how to keep them in good shape.

ADVICE!!!!


The best thing you can do for comfort, is to bring an extra pair of socks with you.


Changing your socks throughout the day will help your feet, and provide extreme comfort! After cuttings several lawns, you'll notice your socks feel skin tight - putting on a new pair will help absorb current/new moisture and prevent irritation.


Putting on a new pair of socks will make you feel pretty darn fresh and ready to tackle on more! It's science!
