    I'm 6'5", 248lbs., and I like clogging while I play. So I sport those wooden thingies from Holland.

    Should go with the overall look of the band. If you're a jeans-and-t-shirt band, wear sneakers. Otherwise, yeah, cowboy boots are excellent for almost anything. I prefer to wear something that's more pointed at the toe, because I get sloppy with my pedalboard with a round toe.

    Just looking at the title, I'd have to go with: yes.

    I used to work with a singer that would always take his shoes off, when he got on stage, and would do the whole gig in his socks!

    Black. Converse chuck Taylor's for most gigs for me. Adidas samba or similar vintage shoe are also classy. Black leather dress shoes on the big money cover and gigs.

    I wear boots because my boots don't use laces and I don't do laces on stage if I can help it.

    Sneakers for casual, Rockport oxfords or wingtips for formal. The Rockports are the most comfortable dress shoe.

    ...and the Rockport ProWalkers are the most comfortable casual shoe. I have to find a new source as JC Penney quit carrying them. A big thumbs-down to Chuck Taylors as they provide no arch support which is necessary for guys like me who've suffered with plantar fasciitis.

    I can't tell you how many times I have heard a hot chick say "I was totally going to do the bass player until I got a look at his shoes".
