What kind of footwear do you prefer?

This question is for everyone who flies and feels like contributing. I need to buy a new pair of shoes or boots for flying, and I’d like for them to be professional looking and durable, while also being comfortable. I know two instructors who prefer boots, and I know Sporty’s carries the Pilot boots by Justin. I’m just curious as to what kind of shoes you guys and gals enjoy wearing while flying. Any particular style or brands you’re loyal to, or that you try to avoid?


I wear regular, black dress shoes, as is required by our uniform standards. For flying small airplanes, I wore loafers.

Whatever black slip-on dress shoe is on sale at Ross’ or Marshall’s. ALL airline pilots are notoriously cheap. If you want to be a REAL airline pilot it’s time to start now! :slight_smile:
