    I’ve heard mention of couriers having to wear black shoes or boots. But is there an actual, published policy requiring it?

    Yes. There's actually a percentage, like 90% black that allows for some grey/reflective spots. Your station can fail an audit if there are people in non-compliance. Socks are supposed to be all black too, e.g., no nike or under armour logo, but that's rarely enforced.

    Hmm. I’m interested because I need a new pair of hiking shoes for work. I finally found a great pair (Scarpa), but they’re largely brown. I can return them if I must.

    We have been given black markers in the past to cover up any and all non-black areas. I kid you not!

    Black is preferred. I still wear white socks with shorts.

    Lol. I’ve worn white with shorts from day one, as ordered. Not wearing black socks in the heat so my feet can be even sweatier.

    Solid black. Always non-skid. Takes one time falling on your butt in an office building lobby on a rainy day to make you see the wisdom in that. Lol. Not that hard to find.

    Lol. They haven’t done that in my station in a looong time. People pretty much do as they please anymore.

    Yes. Preferred, i guess supposed was the wrong word. And they can't be no show, have to be over the ankle.

    So if your primary job is customer interface brown won't work.

    The policy is black OR white, no logos and if they are the short socks, they must cover your ankle.....'no show' socks not allowed.

    Yes, but the paper tacked on our wall showing different styles of acceptable/non acceptable dress says black is preferred.
