I have to decide before tomorrow what shoes I’m going to wear. I’ve researched the best shoes to wear while in the shop but still can’t decide. Should I wear steel toed boots to protect myself? Should I wear tennis shoes for comfort? It’s getting warm enough around here I could start wearing my sandals. Oh woe! Please help me decide. I’m open to Craigslist but don’t want to overpay. What do you guys think? I’ll post pics if that helps…

How much do crocs cost? I need socks also and am on a pretty tight budget.

Steel toed Crocs for the shop.

If you have to ask what they cost you can’t afford them. Socks are for the ladies, but hey they might be for you.

My back and legs bother me unless I have well-padded shoes,I’ve tried high-end( for me) Clarke shoes and now I buy
Nike running shoes and still need to put sole pads inside. They’re still not cheap,but I don’t have leg or back pain with them. If it’s safety you want, but not necessarily the most comfortable go with steel toe shoes.

I have back and foot issues and agree with a1Jim. I get my shoes at at New Balance store. I get the owner to help fit shoes. The younger staff know running shoes but that is it. I have different needs that they do not understand.

I find that I can also buy shoes 20% cheaper at OnlineShoes but I still buy from the store at times. I found also shoes only last me less than a year as my feet sweat and the shoes break down.
