    Dr. Scholls (sp?) worked well, and lasted longer than others.

    Re: Work Shoes

    I like Duluth Trading Company's Wild Boar Hiking Shoes. After breaking my ankle 3 years ago there aren't many shoes I can wear for any length of time. They're not as formal as I'd like, but I can wear them 13 hours, and now come in brown, dark brown and black. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I WAS wearing steel toe boots with Gel inserts and they were fine for 18 months.
    I recently developed a heel spur in my right foot and NOW I wear a pair of black UnderArmour boots and they are amazing.
    Not as dressy as one would like but not that casual either.
    Now i only have to drag the boots out for PPE visits.

    If you do not need steel toe boots, ask your hairdresser or a waiter which shoes he recommends. I 'm happy with Adidas Neo sneakers: http://www.adidas.com/us/men-neo

    I used to wear doc marten shoes, but now I wear CAT Falmouth shoes, they last me for ages & are really comfy the moment you put them on from new, if I wear "ordinary" shoes, i'll get through a pair a week, as I walk to all my jobs

    Tip for the day; Treat every problem as your dog would.....If you cant eat it or f*ck it....then p*ss on it & walk away...

    Re: Work Shoes

    In the past couple years I've started wearing Nunn Bush shoes (Current brand = Beale Street). A lot "dressier" than most, but unlike some places, we don't have a "typical" technician attire (we're a Slacks and a collared shirt Svc. Dept.). The Nunn Bush Shoes are Extremely light weight, with gel pads built into the soul of the shoe. Surprisingly they've held up to the constant abuse of being bent in half, scoffed, endless walking, etc. Like I said, kind of dressy, but durable. I also carry a pair of slip-on steel toe shoes for the industrious areas.
