Running shoes, thongs or Vans for me. Occasionally I break out my old work boots but most of the time they feel like overkill tbh.

I just ordered some Altama OTB Mids. They look like a mix of Vans & Converse, but are combat boots. Quite a few pieces of tech in them that have me excited.

Most of the time I wear chucks unless I expect I'll need better protection, (or more often than not, I misplaced the left foot.) then I'll grab my boots which are a wee bit overkill.

  • WATERPROOF MEMBRANE
  • WATERPROOF LEATHER
  • ANTI-FATIGUE TECHNOLOGY
  • ELECTRICAL HAZARD PROTECTION
  • TIMBERLAND PRO® RUBBER
  • ANTIMICROBIAL
  • SCOTCHGARD™ PROTECTOR
  • BLOOD-BORNE PATHOGEN PROTECTION


Hands down the most comfortable boots I ever worn, took about a day to break in. My personal rule for grabbing my boots is if I'm going some place that when active, OSHA deemed it mandatory to wear boots.




But if you are going artsy, then you're going all the way. Someone's cutting off an ear!

I have an old pair of docs that go with me everywhere.

Except drains. Well... once or twice even drains.

I just wear tennis shoes or work boots. Tennis shoes usually, but the boots are for if the terrain is muddy or wet.




At the end of the day, we're all just archaeologists who jumped the gun.

I always wear high top hikers when I head underground. I'm currently wearing a pair of Columbia boots for mine exploring and motorcycle instructing. I'm about to retire them from mine exploring since I've worn the tread off them so I'll be looking for a new pair in the near future.

Mine exploring is really hard on boots since we are hiking on rocks the whole time. We explore hard-rock mines which are always blasted out of the rock leaving very sharp rocks behind. Even the tailings piles are just big heaps of sharp rocks. A slip and fall always results in blood. Ask me know I know...

Ironically mine exploring is really tough on tires as well. Every time I head down to the tire shop at least one of the guys will comment on the condition of the tires on my truck. I guess they are surprised that I actually do some serious off road driving. Not being the smartest of people, I do take it places that it has no business going. I'm not called Abby Normal for nothing...

For work or above-ground-exploring it's usually Danner or Doc Martens Industrial boots. For drains it's always been either tall rubber boots or chest waders, although lately I've been running knee-high goretex socks with water shoes (Salomon TechAmphibian 3's). Don't think I'll willingly go back to boots unless it's for a shit-sewer
