    Red Wing iron rangers. I play most of my gigs in western PA. Lot's of people round here just wear boots and jeans, so I do too. I sometimes bust out the black Chucky Taylors, but only for special occasions, like that time I played a pit orchestra for Grease. :roflmao:
  3. I have 7 pair of high tops. Chucks and PF Flyers , I also have biker boots I wear in the cold months ( both of them here in FL). I had a wide foot otherwise I would have way more cool shoes. I own more shoes than my wife.

    Dr Martens. Boots for rock shows, a really nice pair of Dr Marten wingtips for gigs that are dressier. I need to be able to bounce.

    If you haven’t figured out how much having the right shoes matters in life yet, well that’s just not that cool.

    Tube socks. Footwear *and* attire. Think RHCP.

    Blk Suade Pumas! (or really any all blk sneaker) if dress shoes aren't needed. I can't wear vans or converse anymore—Me feets gone flat!

    Black walking or running shoes with store bought inserts. I have to go with comfort over style, ever since I started managing heel pain. Good arch support inserts do wonders for the heel pain, even though I don't really understand how that works.

    Depends on the gig. Sometimes snakeskin boots, sometimes black dress shoes, sometimes sneaks. Almost always though, none.

    Same. Everything from casual boots to motorcycle boots to desert tactical boots.
