    Don’t get me wrong....I love slip on’s and have more pair than I care to mention. I just don’t really prefer to work in them normally.

    Most people like slip-ons better, because they are fat,
    and about pass out by the time they get lace ups tied. You can only be late for work because you passed out in the entryway floor so many times.

  3. I’m genuinely curious how you figure a lace up anything is “quicker and easier” than a pull up?

    They literally slide right on. I can simply slide my foot in them without even bending over. I don’t think tying takes very long at all. Slip on’s take some pulling.
     
  5. No way you’re out the door first.

    This made me laugh. I have always used lace up work boots. I've put on about 20 lbs recently and bought the slip ons for the exact reason you described. When you are worn out just putting on your boots, it's a sign.

    I have worn Redwing lace up work boots for so many years that I have lost count.
    I just hit them with some mink oil an snow seal every so often

    Mink oil is the life of a boot,. I like to get mine hot in front of the heater or stand over a wood stove it really gets in deep that way

    I wear slip on Ariat at work. We have to wear ESD. And they are one of the few that make a slip on ESD. I like lace up redwings. Haven’t had a pair in few years. Heard they ain’t what they used to be.

    Been wearing Justins for years, but think my next pair of work boots I’m going to try the xtra tuff deck boots.
     
  13. Years ago I had a pair of fancy Redwing lace ups I’d almost forgot about that I really liked, the Supersole. They looked good enough to wear out to eat and were tennis shoe comfortable too.

    Slip ons for sitting on the tractor and minimal walking. Lace ups if walking a lot, better ankle support.
     
  15. Now that you mention it I bought those lace up Redwings because of a significant ankle roll, my second in a month on same ankle. I needed the 8” of support that boot provided. I’d almost forgot about that. Been years since I rolled one, used to roll them both frequently when I was more active and played sports.
