In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Dogs do chew on the grossest things.

I wear Keen safety toe boots at work. They're the first boot I have found that lasts more than a year in an industrial maintenance environment. Very comfortable for me.

I also have been wearing Keen sandals for about 12+ years. They last long and are comfortable. I wear them everywhere I can when the weather is warm enough. I have another pair that has more man-made materials that are great for hiking through streams.

I was reading something on Quora and sandals from the Roman era came up in the conversation. They look very similar to yours but came with hobnails on the sole for trampling on their fallen enemies.
You dont happen to have some Roman heritage...do you?

If you work outside and have to have boots with a protective toe, I strongly recommend getting ones with a composite toe. Steel toes get cold and stay cold a LONG time. Plus, they eventually rust from feet sweat and can chew holes in the toes of your socks. Composite toe boots are still not a super common thing though. Your mileage may vary on finding some that you like and meet whatever requirements you may have to comply with.

I've noticed every comp toe boot I've worn, I needed to go a size wider then usual.

Not that I'm aware of. I need to try those hob nails though.

I looked at those but was disappointed at the lack of aggressive tread on them.

So, I've been using Teva Forebay sandals instead. The tread usually lasts about two years, thought the sandals will last longer if you don't mind having racing slicks for tread.

I wore Tevas a lot years ago. But all the Tevas I liked had velcro and I got tired of digging dog hair out of the velcro.

Your dogs aren't supposed to be wearing the sandals. You are.

Well apparently it's OK to talk about stretchy pants here too.

If you never tried them... ask your wife... she will tell you what you've been missing.

What else do you wear from your wife's closet?

Wait. Don't answer that.

PLEASE don't answer that.
