    Got about everything else here at OF.
    How about shoes you wear?
    Wear Timberland Disruptors everyday so I can drop stuff on my feet or kick something that needs kicking.
    Plus the rubber soles are quiet for sneaking up on lollygaggers.

    Wolf and Shepherd Crossover Hiker looks pretty good. Anyone wear before I blow a few bucks on them.

    I searched shoes and did not find the type on your feet. So I assume I am good.

    Allen Edmonds at work, Red Wings (chukkas or iron rangers) on weekends. Compulsive slipper-wearer around the house, and those are LLBean.

    I was a sneakerhead before that was a term.

    In the 90s I lived in Jordan 5s & Reebok Pumps (yes, Reebok Pumps :)
    I then graduated to Adidas Shelltoes, I was never an AF1 dude, Always Shelltoes.

    Then I got older & graduated to Vans, I had a massive collection of originals, limited editions etc etc etc. SK8-His & Slipons were my bag.

    But decades of wearing sneakers combined with neuropathy from lower back surgery means my arches are utterly shot.

    I have Plantar Fasciitis as well, some mornings I cannot walk at all & have to crawl around - not exactly elegant.

    I have had courses of PRP injections, Steroid shots, the works. My feet are toast. So I simply can't wear flat shoes anymore.

    Cue the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned, Blundstone 545s. If you have painful feet These are a Godsend.

    These things rarely leave my feet - I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Those and my OOFOS orthopedic jandals/thongs/flip flops. Not the coolest looking footwear I have ever owned but they save me from having to crawl in the mornings. Plantar Fasciitis is no joke.

    I live in Common Projects. Two pairs of Achilles low in white - one for everyday use (these) and one for casual use. One pair in black for work.

    I used to wear a lot of Church’s with suits, but working mostly remotely put a stop to that and since even clients are rocking up to meetings in sneakers I’ve made the switch.

    As a long sufferer of plantar fasciitis as well.... been there and done that. I'd recommend daily stretching exercises, learn how to tape the bottom of your feet, you can find online, and a great pair of custom orthotic inserts... a must. Since wearing orthotics, I have been relatively pain free. I too have a pair of Blundstone's and wear them with my orthotics. Also Danica clogs help too... the only shoe I can wear comfortably without my inserts. Hope helps.

    Daily

    Rainbow sandals except no substitute

    casual Adidas Sambas, pure old school.

    workout Adidas Ultra Boosts

    dress shoes lean toward wingtip boots. I’ve been very happy with Johnston Murphy and their various offerings. I like the price quality ratio on them.

    Ahhh Shoes, a passion of mine. From my early twenties onwards I have almost always worn leather boots and shoes and only wear trainers when doing sports or exercise. I own several pairs of brogues. Some from Loake , Grenson and Alfred Sargent. I also like the brand Cheaney. I own a few pairs of Redwings plus a pair of English made work boots called William Lennon. The boots that I wear mostly though? Blundstones. Easy to just slide on when leaving the house and super comfortable.

    Actually, I decided I wanted to give my original post a ‘like’, but the option isn’t there :mad:

    Today I'm wearing my first ever pair of superstars, I get they're an iconic trainer, but I'm not overly thrilled, they've not lasted very long and the sole is thin as anything!

    I've also got a set of AF1s, but they're the trainer of choice right now for 17-18 year olds so I feel a bit daft wearing them.

    Normally I'm wearing a vintage-style pair of runners, New Balance or recently a pair of Nike Challenger, but the lightweight materials and meshes are crap in the winter.

    When I'm wearing boots it's either a pair of Timberland Stormbuck Chelsea boots, or an un-named pair of leather and suede Timberlands - I'm looking to replace these with some Iron Rangers, but they're not easy to get in the UK.

    Like @marcn above, I'm always wearing slippers in the house, but mine are Barbour's finest.

    I have had these for 15 years. Re-healed once. Driving to work in them. Then wearing new Bates combat boots. 527CD9D1-8BF8-49A8-B6CB-58BA8A2366CB.jpeg F6ED480F-4ABA-4217-98B7-AE4720FBE0A4.jpeg 234C5C24-9DEF-4FB5-989F-A55A05DCEF70.jpeg

    Big yes to Common Projects. I've got 2 pairs in white, a beater pair and a newer pair which are now starting to get beaten up a bit.

    My favorite model of boots. Classic design with very scratchable surface so it perfectly matches my vintage watches!
