    I start next saturday and am thinking of buying some shoes/boots for the job. I know they need to be black, or at least majority black, but I was wondering if we could get away with tennis shoes. Any ideas of some would be nice too, let me know what could pass. Thanks Much

    We get bitched at about tennies. Shoes have to be polishable.

    Try 'cop boots'. They aren't extremely comfy but they ARE comfy (otherwise cops wouldn't wear them!). You can get them at any cop surplus store...oh, if you have a gf, or bf, buy some cuffs too, they cost about $50 ;)

    Sturdy shoes with leather uppers.

    pretty much buy an all leather shoe and you cant go wrong.

    I wish I'd still be delivering saturday air... I'd come to work to work in flip flops and a brown t-shirt and go to the beach when I'm done. :)

    I am having good luck with some boots from Original Swat.
    My brother wore them over in Iraq. I figure if they are good enough for fire fighters in Iraq They will work for preload and air driver.
    Comfortable, light and seem to be lasting pretty good.

    Was wondering if you thought these would be acceptable? I have two other pairs of these in different colors and they are incredibly comfortable and light. Feedback is appreciated.

    I would go with these instead at almost half the price. Mine lasted about four months working FT, which is average for most brands of shoes.

    I've been wearing Rocky Walkers for almost 20 years. I get about 12/16 months per pair for about $80/$90. They are also approved by UPS and nobody can tell you that they aren't acceptable.
