Asked by lucillelucillelucille (30752points) 1 week ago

I’d like to find a better brand than the one that starts with a “W”.
Any suggestions?

Ace Work boots are pretty good, these lasted on my feet at my job for a long time, I also have a pair of the Red Wings, Both super reliable!!

@ Lucillelucillelucille your most welcome! Take care of your feet because they take you everywhere you need and want to go!

@PaisleyFaye -You’ve got that right! I have a pair now that the steel toe box feels like I have a sea urchin in there. Yes, a sea urchin XD

Wolverines. They make quality boots, and have some with steel toes.

@PaisleyFaye – I know,right! lol
@MrGrimm888 -Unfortunately, those are the ones with the sea urchin in the toe box

@MrGrimm888 -You are not the only one who likes them. Maybe I just got a bum pair,idk.

@LuckyGuy -Thanks but are you able to dance in them?

MrGrimm888's avatar

^You take off your shoes, to truly dance. Silly goose.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Nope. Have you ever danced barefoot, on the beach, on a moonlit summer night, with a lover, and no music? If not, I highly recommend it…

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@MrGrimm888 – Not on a beach as I can’t abide no sea urchins on my feet but I have danced in the rain, in a parking lot with a boyfriend who looked like Barney Rubble.
remember,envy is not a good color on anyone LOL!

@MrGrimm888 Good point! Barefeet on the sand works better, and very free feeling!

MrGrimm888's avatar

Barefooted, you feel the Earth beneath you. I feel connection with nature, that shoes cannot replicate.
I love shoes. They are like armor, for my feet. But sometimes, it’s nice to feel the ground…

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Ha. Well. What can I say. Great minds think alike.

Connecting with nature, is what keeps me as grounded as I am. And am NOT grounded.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@MrGrimm888 – I was just talking to someone about that feeling you get when one is out &about in nature.
It’s kind of addictive & there is a reason for that.
A friend goes to the woods to mediate and she is one of the most laid back people I know in spite of boatloads of ongoing stressors in her life.

PaisleyFaye's avatar

@MrGrimm888 I think we all can use a lil grounding to some degree or another. I know I can.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Thanks. That actually makes me feel better.

@PaisleyFaye -So dancing to Rocketman is out of the question?

MrGrimm888's avatar

^I’m not used to support. Thank you both.

@Grimm888 Your Name tells me you deserve to partake in some good ole SUNSHINE!

PaisleyFaye's avatar

@ Lucillelucillelucille I LOVE THAT SONG!!!

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@MrGrimm888 -Oops I mean to say meditate not mediate although she probably does plenty of that too. :)

MrGrimm888's avatar

No. Mr. Grimm, has been a nickname of mine. For a long time. Some people actually call me by that name. It’s partly due to my pessimistic views. And partly due to my relationship with a character on a video game. It is sadly appropriate.

I was told several times to change or to Moses. An interesting fact, on my apperrance, and other traits. ...

What an ironic world, we live in…

My husband swears by Wolverine. I’m partial to The Beast and Rogue.

I have worn them all and now wear Keen work boots. They don’t last as long as wolverines or Redwings but they are comfortable enough to wear all day.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@ARE_you_kidding_me -I haven’t heard of them but will check it out
@tedibear-A lot of people like them,it seems
