Hey Ladies,

I don't like having a dirty cab and more importantly I hate cleaning it!! Lol!! Thinking of getting some slippers to wear while driving that are easy on and off. Wondering if any of my fellow lady drivers wear slippers? If so what kind and what do they look like? Thanks!!

Do not wear slippers. Unsafe. Work boots is the way to go.

Your work boots -- what brand, if I may ask? I tried a Walmart version of weatherproofed steel-toe and it hurt my feet. I took them back after one day, and they were okay with it. I know I'm gonna need to spend at least $100 instead of $40.

Also, I do have several cowgirl boots saved on my wish list with Amazon dot com. Working boots, not dancing or fancy. And I also have several regular work boots for women saved on my wish list.

I bought mine from Red Wing shoes and it was the best investment I ever made!

I personally love Timberlands. Quality construction, come in a huge variety. They've never hurt my feet. They're also not incredibly expensive, you can get a decent pair on Amazon for about $70.

Right now I'm wearing CAT work shoes. They are steel toed and composite/nonslip sole but look like a pair of black sneakers, and they're very comfortable to drive in.

I like Keen hiking shoes. Good traction, and GoreTex, so they're waterproof. Not steel-toed, but Keens have a thick rubber bumper over the front, which has saved me from a stubbed toe many a time. I've ordered off Zappos online with good results.

Thanks for all the advice!! I've got decent footwear for when I jump out of the truck, so I'm just more wondering about footwear that'll keep my feet warm during the cold winters and are comfortable to wear driving. I like the thought of slippers for driving in and plan on buying some for in the truck so I'm just wondering what all my fellow lady drivers are wearing if they drive in slippers.
