Default Favorite Shoes

What is your favorite brand of shoes and why?

Me: Chucks, they're really comfortable and always have great styles.

Dr. Scholl's "walkers"...I have bad feet...I'm on my fourth pair of these, they are great (on the advice of my podiatrist, I buy new shoes every 6 months).

I like New Balance. They're the most comfortable shoes I've had.

Combat Boots? What brand and type do you wear?

I wear boots most of the time. I was issued a pair of Bellville tan hot weather boots when I was in Iraq. They were lightyears better than any other "military" boot I had ever worn. When I got my current job I decided to buy the black version of the same boot, so I ordered them online. Danner's (brand) seem to be very similar, but more expensive.

Check 'em out:

http://belleville-boots.com/army.htm

I was issued the 790's, now I own the 700's. Both come in a steeltoe. I'm ordering those next. Great damn boot and worth every penny.



When I am NOT working I wear Doc Marten's. I've had the same pair for 5 years!!

When it comes to athletic shoes... I ALWAYS buy Nike.

In summer and dry weather - my Converse (I don't even feel like I'm wearing them), in rain/snow I have both Doc Marten and Caterpillar boots which are also pretty comfortable.

From that list I'll pick Crocs, although Birkenstocks are my all time favorite. I still have my wedding pair!
