A local equipment shop in my town sells these. I checked them out today, and they are built really well, with steel toes too. Check them out, they look like good quality. Built for lawn care operators.

They look really nice, but a bit pricey for my budget
I used to wear steel toe boots (ouch!) they were heavy, but then switch to my old running nikes. this ones doesnt seem heavy at all.

Yea, they werent heavy at all when I looked at them. I like the circular tread pattern so you can pivot without completely tearing up the lawn.

It's really unique!


$94

Do you think the niche is large enough to support a specialized shoe for lawn care providers?

Would you buy these? Why or why not?

What price range would you pay for shoes for work?

I am a believer in good quality shoes. I would pay up to $100 for a pair if i know I am getting good quality in return for my money. I was thinking about buying a pair. I will let you know if I do.

Would they help you even though you specialize in tree care now?

I think so. I could def. use the steel toes. I still do yard care, it keeps money flow coming in when the trees aren't coming down, so they would be helpful still.

Brandon,

Another thing that would be neat to know is if these shoes are actually selling at the store you visit. I like the concept and how the sole is designed to allow you to pivot I just don't know if this business has enough potential customers.

If they were looking for investors, would you invest in them?
