    ...that is not in the running shoe category, and (obviously) is not part of the 5.11 tuxedo.

    GO!

    I like my Merrell Moabs. Trail runners, technically, but like a low-cut, lightweight shoe with the tread of a hiking boot. I've been through several pairs over the last couple of years, and love them.

    For causal, as in, t shirt and shorts casual, I wear Vans. I have several styles and I have worn them for years.

    Oh so socially conscious, yet subtly tactical.

    The less shoe the better. In fact, Chuck's may be the perfect all round shoe.

    Exactly. They are my go to shoe for lifting, cross-fitting, short runs, and day to day wear.

    I never pictured you to be a Vans guy.

    Maybe a Sketchers guy, but not a Vans guy. :rofl:

    It depends. Most of the time, I am riding my Gold Wing, so it's Ariat ropers. If I'm not on the bike and it's warm enough to wear shorts, then sandals or running shoes. Or jeans and Topsiders, no socks. I have a lot of shoes.

    Oakley used to sell a nice tennis shoe that had boot tread, low cut, and water proof. I had a pair and a cop buddy had a pair. They were fantastic! Oakley still has a similar shoe. I think it's the low cut Sabbot. But they dont carry the water proof ones any more.

    Har-Har...

    You do know ( I guess not) that I have an ongoing gag on Glock Talk (although they are real stories) called "A Rabbi Adventure" and when I post pics I try to always include one with my (a) Vans in them.

    I have not posted one in quite a while.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I like my Bally dress boots for business and Vans for casual.

    Buy quality and they will last you forever.
