What types of footwear do you like to wear?

I mostly like to don ankle boots and ballet flats. On special/specific occasions, I wear tennis/laced shoes.

Tennis shoes is the way I roll. The ones I have now are Velcro.

Sneakers and during the warm months I live in the leather Earth Shoe sandals Walmart sells. On my third pair.



edit: Honestly, I didn't realize until recently that most of the country calls them "tennis shoes." I hear that term and I think shoes more along the line of Keds, not Nike. "Sneakers" is apparently a very northeast (and south FL) thing.

I got pes cavus so my feet are damn picky on what to wear, nowadays I'm wearing some sandals that actually really ease walking pains and I can walk for hours. I use them mostly for work but as long as the weather is ok I use them regularly.

We call sneakers "tennis" where I live, too. maybe it's an imported anglicism, though.

And yes, they're my preferred footwear as well. Boots can be cool and are pretty much mandatory on a rainy day, but boy are they heavy.

At home I either wear slippers or just walk around barefoot. Depends on the current temperature.

I don't wear anything. I walk out in the world with my bare feet like a caveman.

At work I wear black "walking" sneakers usually with antislip soles. When out on my days off a simple pair of comfortable tennis shoes. At home I usually either wear slippers or go barefoot. I also have some dress shoes for special occasions.

I'm more of a slip-on/Mary Jane person. I hate tennis shoes and like my shoes flat and lightweight, usually with a strap.

I actually just got a new pair, but they're painfully tight...

I try to wear the lightest pair of sneakers I can find because I will often be wearing them for 9-10 hours at a time at work. A good thick cushion and sturdy sole is essential too.

Depends on the occasion and activity. But usually the most comfortable and lazy option I have available.

I wear the Skechers Vigor 2.0 Trait, I have two pairs, one in Black and the other in Navy/Gray, both are the Wide Fit ones, they are very comfortable and great for walking, since I have issues with the heels on my feet hurting after standing for a long time.

For going out I wear these Polo high tops I got for like $20 ('cause honestly, who needs to spend more than that on a pair of shoes???)
And when I'm at home I wear these slipper/sandal things.

Prior to my having messed up the Achilles on both feet, it was nothing but Converse One Stars and Doc Marten's.

These days it's nothing but running shoes.

Let that be a lesson to you kids, don't jog in old sneakers.

Boots for construction work, hiking and just everyday stuff.
Adidas for basketball and tennis, Asics or adidas or Brooks for running.
Then old basketball or running shoes for being out and about when its hot.
