Re: for the clumsy

I DO like those shoes...and at 150 they're significantly cheaper than Redwings.

But I'm generally against too much armor. Not only is it cumbersome and uncomfortable, it is also another barrier between you and your chosen matter. Uniforms and costumes assembled by some necktied OSHA geek do NOT have your work in mind.
Naked wont do, of course, but permissive attire is more important than protective attire. Burns, bumps, scrapes and lacerations are just part of the intimacy of the relationship. You can choose between eight hours of straight-jacket or minutes of pain and bleeding. I'll take the latter and get some WORK done.

Re: for the clumsy

Neat stuff!
I'm all for good safety equipment but have to agree with evaldart about being too removed or secure from your work and the process. As they say, no pain, no gain. The days I forget to wear the steel toe Redwings makes me evaluate my actions more carefully. Hey E, for the summer uniform how about the d3o loincloth? Freedom of movement and only essential protection of one's 'structural integrity'.

Re: for the clumsy

Hi Grommet, Thanks for the info. I wonder if they're lighter than those steel toed Redwings that I wear now?
Have a great day,
Jeff

Re: for the clumsy

Great stuff. I wonder if it will be applied to motorized vehicles?
