I'd like to know what kind of shoes you all wear when inspecting homes. With all the weeds, wet grass, doggy messes 8O , trashy homes, etc... not just any ole' shoe will work. As for me I wear a light weight leather sport/boot. It's water resistant, and tough enough for all the wear and tear. What about you?? :D

"Red Wing" steel toe lace-up boots. The mark of a real working red-neck! :lol:

Steel toe slip on boots (Lehigh or Blundstone) or zippered jump boots. Easy on easy off is the name of the game just in case i step in something I do not want to drag into the house.

Mr. Tony,

From the slate foyer, to the kitchen vinyl, to the living room hardwood, to the bath ceramic. and to the bedroom plush - it's the golf shoe, for me. I prefer a good Ted Anthony or a custom made Jack Russel, or in a pinch even a Jack Nicholas will do. Arnold Palmers just don't have enough grip.

I found a brand named "Rocky" at the local sporting goods store. They're light, waterfproof and have Gortex insulation. Best shoe I have ever owned. Look like Rockports. The pair I have now is 3 years old and still look good.

Good weather, little snow, summertime, etc I use a pair of Dexter walking shoes or similar low cuts.

Winter time, cold, frozen ground or with lots of snow, ice etc, I use my Kangaroo Hunting boots.

I actually did a Cert of Completion a couple of years ago wearing my waders and wading boots. The new construction was on the way to an evening of fly-fishing and since I put my fishing togs on at home, that's how I did the final inspection on that house.

Justin Mule Skins on dry days. I keep my Cabella's pull-ons (with side zipper, rubber bottoms, and leather uppers) in the rear hatch for wet days, construction inspections, etc.

Rockport walking shoes all year long except on really cold snowy days (about 10 days a year) when I change to warm hiking boots.

If I could I'd wear my brickenstocks 24/7...w/socks in the winter!
