I work for a motor company in R&D and process development.  Unless I am on the shop floor training operators on new lift equipment, I am in my Brown or Black Treks and if a casual day presents itself I'm in my Komodo's or KSO's.  When I am in one of our assembly plants I wear my Komodo's with a safety toe overshoe on them (Oashatoes) and if I am working around a lift or manipulator I have clip on metatarsal protection on with the Oashatoes.  I just did a 5 hour presentation before executive leadership and upper management last week wearing my Treks.  I wear nothing but VFF's....

Where do you find the clipon protection?

I have a pair of VFF KSOs in all black.  I'm an LEO and I've worn them at one off duty job (bank guard, in PD uniform) for the last 5 weeks. So far only 2 people have noticed them. Since most of the women here wear flip flop/sandals/ballet slipper looking shoes, I doubt I'll catch any grief from the management.

I'm going to wear them at another off duty job tomorrow at the library, again in uniform.  It will be interesting to see if anyone notices or cares.  Have an off duty job lined up later this month that is in plain clothes...KSOs all the way! At least until it snows. By then I hope to have a plan B in place.

Sorry for the late reply VFF, I've been putting in some serious hours the last few weeks (that's what I get after 2 weeks up in the Pocono's).  I have a pair from Oashatoes.com and a pair I bought at the Super Shoes out by the Lowes/Giant on Market Street.

I work for a major home improvement chain and we are not allowed to wear our five fingers out on the sales floor because we were told they are unsafe and unprofessional. I personally think it is a bunch of bull that we can't wear them but that's management for you. However as soon as I am done with work (usually when we close), I am in my five fingers before I am walking out the door before I am leaving for the night.

Sorry....   The clip on metatarsal protection is something we stock in our crib at work.  See link for similar products.

I was actually looking at the Borimo as an alternative to combat boots, however, starting 1 November we are not able to wear tan boots any more. So, that idea is over. I dont completely hate wearing these boots, but they can very uncomfortable. The only other thing is that I would like to buy a pair and then have them altered to be zero drop, but I am sure it is expenisve to do something like that. I guess I could call around to a couple boot repair places and see what they say.

I doubt we'll ever get a pair of barefoot combat boots. I just wish someone would make a zero drop one. I too am considering going the altered route, but the pair I have now is falling apart and I haven't been able to decide on my next pair (plus I'm at a location where I can't easily try on new ones, we don't have a clothing sales here). I want one as close to zero drop as possible, but yeah, no idea what sort of boots are around nowadays. If I ever get around to getting a pair altered I'll report the price and how things went.
