What's on your feet? Do you like boots, sneakers, or some other kind of footwear?

I just bought these beauties, Panama Jack Felina Igloo Boots. Really warm!!!

I really like your boots!

I almost exclusively wear Floris van Bommel shoes, but those are not really useful for outdoorsy stuff :)

Those are nice looking boots Serena.   :tu:

I mostly wear lightweight waterproof hiking shoes or boots in the colder weather and running shoes in the summer.

Great thread :tu:

I wear a few different brands of boots for work, usually wear one pair out before using the next :salute:

Right now I am wearing Ariats, not insulated so we will see how i fair this winter with that :ahhh I have done this before with just wool socks but the coldest it normally gets here is in the low teens F. On occasion it dips down to 0° F but hope we take that day for days off :whistle: :D

Insulated boots are overkill for me on a typical winter day in Spain,

I guess I should convert my F to C and see what the temps should be :think: but it is rather cold but that is relative to other places in the world where it really does get cold  :ahhh :D

Well, I luckily have great circulation and have been facing the elements year round for 20 + years (wow that seems like a long time now that I type it down) :salute: So to me insulated boots are nice but not a must have :tu:

I only wear boots from late fall into early spring. Hence they seem to last forever.

Here are my go to's. I do have a couple of pairs of insulated boots but I rarely wear them even when well below 0°F unless I have to be outside standing around for any length of time. I find a good thick pair of wool socks and not too tight shoes or boots work just fine for me.

The running shoes I wear from early summer to early fall. Light cool and comfortable and great for walking.  :tu:

They do, actually like them again. Walked on 5.11 for a couple of years. They're trashed so I started using these again.
Hope the fresh pair arrives soon…

I wear Bates Enforcer boots.

to work, to school, to cut the grass, to snow-blow.  everywhere

I keep the old ones for yard work, and when I get a new pair, all of the others get upgraded.  New for daily wear, so old daily wear gets moved to yard pair, and that pair gets send down to snow-blowing pair, and that one gets moved to mud work.

I feel they are as comfortable as tennis shoes, with added ankle support, and the round nub traction gives good traction in any direction. 

My work attire is "business tactical"  these boots , 5.11 tacticle tac lite pro pants, and a dress shirt (sometimes with tie)

these boots are all I have worn for the past 10 years or so.


If I can help, let me know

Nice footwear y'all.  I am still wearing my Thorogoods.  1 pair for work and one pair everything else.  I wear Merells when hiking.  I have a pair of 25 or so year old boots by Havana Joe.  I keep my boots almost as clean as Nix.
