Nike to make real Back to the Future shoes - Telegraph
Just in time!
Hi guys hope everyone is well.
I was pondering something the other day as i noticed my shoes have completely worn out. Im sure you do the same being techs running everywhere i don't stay still and always running around the school site. We take our feet for granted and sometimes get overlooked by just any old footwear.
So i was wondering what recommendations do people have for suitable footwear thats for a person running around but also comfortable. Not everyone can wear trainers in certain environments so lets assume trainers is a no no and smart footwear it is.
And ladies please add your suggestions for the lady techs out there too.
I just thought it would be a good discussion and topic for everyone to chip in and say.
LOL we could design a edugeekshoe ...... lol ok ill shut up now .
I'm happy with whatever Matalan has on offer when I need shoes. Don't tend to buy anything special, just something smart.
hitec magnum boots FTW.
Get as most stuff fixable using remote tools, saves a packet on footwear!
Well-broken in boots. Comfy, and you can kick a hole in an elephant should the need arise.
I tend to buy Clarks but from Brantanos at the moment as I find them very comfortable (Hook Toughs current pair) but the last couple of pairs seemed to wear very easily on the soles such that they only lasted about a term! Wasn't too bothered as they were on offer at £25 but this time I'll not be happy if it happens as I paid £45.
The best ones I had previously were jockey boots from Hush Puppies. They were really tough, really comfortable and the soles lasted well over a year.
I usually stick with smart safety boots - often they can be picked up for about £20 and seem to last long enough for me.
(I have a fairly hefty walk to/from the train station(s) as my travel arrangements)
I have quite bad arthritis in my big toes, I'm down to have them operated on but it will take me out of action for 6 weeks, so I keep putting it off. Anyway, I wear Crane trainers from Aldi. They are either grey or brown and don't look too trainerish. Nice and comfy and really hard-wearing. I think they cost around £15.
Was gonna say Hush Puppies. I however am too cheap/poor to buy proper shoes so I normally only ever replace my shoes with cheap nasty jobbies from the Shoe Zone or somewhere like that and I only ever do that when they're totally fudged. I think I'm about due for some more at the moment as mine have stretched through usage. Seeing as it's getting later on in the year, I may invest in some boots.
Doc Marten's when they are worn in you cannot go wrong, and they make saftey shoe/boot versions if you need them
This especially holds for running shoes - it's worth going to a shop with a treadmill where they can accuratly measure your gait and recommend you particular trainers, even if it costs you £100 for a pair. Those can't be repaired when they wear out, and tend to last around 6 months, but you can use gel inner soles that you can switch to a new pair of trainers when the old pair is worn out.
I wear comfy leather shoes I got from Clarks in the sales. They have lasted for 2 and a half years so far
