  • Where do I get good waterproof shoes?

    At my new job we have low side tubs and regular high tubs. It's really easy to get the big dogs up into the low side tubs. It just takes one person and no ramp. However, the water splashes a lot. We have aprons, but the water runs down the apron onto my shoes. I am trying to get some good waterproof shoes. I'm looking for a sneaker type shoe but I am open to other options. Any reccommendations?

    Try going on ebay and putting in kennel shoes. They're a waterproof shoe made for groomers. I had a pair for the longest time and loved them. They even have a cute little paw print on them.
    don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

      I wear Crocs. When they get wet I can just wipe them off with a towel. I love them!

          Gotta get crocs. I love mine and my feet stay dry. You can check them out at www.crocs.com. They have a ton of different styles!

            I agree, crocs are great! The bathing room at my work has a drain in the floor, so big dogs get washed on the ground. I get soaked, but it saves a lot of wear and tear on my back. I wear quick drying pants and crocs with no socks. (I'm a poet and I don't even know it)

              Muck shoes

              I got the pet lover's Muck shoe. (The company is called "the original Muck shoe company.") It's a slip-on and has the little paw print on it. I got them at Country Max.

                  Crocs!!!! I used to wear sneakers too until I started reading this board. Tried a pair and will never go back! My feet are dry and comfy and my legs and back don't hurt at the end of the day (as bad..lol). If you do stick w/sneakers you can spray them w/the waterproofing sprays that they sell at most shoe stores. They work quite well. You just have to remember to reapply periodically.

                      I ordered a pair of Crocs after reading about them here. I have really bad plantar fasciitis and they have actually helped, PLUS they are rubber so your feet can get wet without you being soaked & cold all day. I believe there are waterproof Crocs available, no ventilation holes. And they're only like $39.

                          Wouldn't your feet sweat in crocs? I had a pair of completely waterproof rubber shoes and they made my feet sweat, so by the end of the day I had wet feet anyway. I was thinking of Gore Tex, so they could breathe and not get so sweaty.

                            I wear cropped socks with my crocs. They keep them from getting sweaty.

                              i have a pair of waterproof, insulated shoes by merrill. they cost about $120. i tend to spend money on shoes because if i don't i end up with leg cramps. i get merrill's at the walking store in the mall by me.
