    I mostly used work-shoes, very resistant to every kind of situation.
    Boots for fall and winter and shoes for others seasons.
    A pair of old black very cheap boots march with me since 1995, they are used most by the countryfarmers, they are the best when I walk in the hills.
    Last fall I started to use a pair of fake Timberland, very well made, but they are not so used enough to say if they are enough good.
    For the rest...barefoot.

    I wait until a good pair of athletic shoes goes on sale. I purchase a pair break them in, then wait until I go someplace exotic. No sense getting a expensive pair of shoes with the situations I can get myself into, I wouldn't want to wrap them up and stick them back in my suitcase. I have no regrets tossing destroyed cheap shoes. I am to stingy to buy expensive and then have to feel the pain of tossing them.

    For me; I go as light as possible. I bought a pair of these very cheaply about 8yrs ago. They've walked a long way through 'bout 20 countries on coral to tarmac. I don't know how Clarkes could have made any money on these things. They now have their own dedicated corner of the wardrobe (mainly because wifey won't let any of hers near them).

    I currently have a pair of Italian made lowa boots; however, my next pair will be custom made. I'm currently deciding between Esatto boots and Limmer boots.

    One thing I've found *not* to do is go caving in flip flops. You tend to slide out of them.

    Other than that I've used anything from old work boots to strapon sandals to water shoes (stream crossings). If it feels good wear it!

    Basic Timberlands for offroad and winter use.

    Rockport Walker brogues for more urban settings. With the ortho heel pads I use I can walk for hours in these, even carrying a lot of gear.

    Terra Wild-siders, Military. Black. Steel toe, steel shank, oil, acid, & chemical resistant soles. (Hey, you just never know...) Actually I wear these for work, I have never slid, they stick to just about anything (yes teflon too, I've tried) and are full ankle support, saved me a sprain or two. Draw back: weight!
    A pair of cheap velcro sandles (prefered with a cushy sole, not the hard type) for warm weather around town shooting. Drawback: funny tan lines that look like dirt patches on your feet.
    A nice pair of dress shoes for the "must look apropriate" times.
    Sneakers for everything else.

    Merrils, for work, play, light hiking, with super stiff soles, and superfeet inserts. Gotta have the superfeet inserts

    Five-ten hiking books for the cold and wet, assuming I worry about it.

    3 year old Teva Sandals for the hot days

    For street work, Doc Martins. Another would be Rockport's walking shoes. Very good.

    And while I do look good in them, the 6" stilettos just kill my feet!

    My lucky green Docs. People don't seem to ask as many questions after they see my shoes.
