I'm a hero!
My fiance does sound, loading and unloading 2 tractor trailers full of P.A. He says it's like building a treehouse every day, climbing, lifting, walking, stacking it up and tearing it back down.
His feet hurt. His back hurt. His HAIR hurt. I took care of his feet and the rest is on it's way. He was immediately impressed by the arch supports, and watching him kick the speaker cabinets straight, I couldn't help but appreciate the wraparound toe reinforcement. Torn ligaments get the ankle support, but the cutaway in the back allow the constant kneeling and squatting to happen easily.
Can't wait for a summer tour to hear how well they breathe! BTW, I have a pair of Keen's myself (love 'em) which is why I chose the brand. I did good.
