Hey everyone, what is your preferred footwear on set?
Everyone is welcome to share what brand/type of footwear is most comfortable for them when they work.
Personally, for myself, I wear Adidas Ultra Boost's every day and waterproof boots on certain outdoor situations.
Please have fun, and share your opinions here!
Well, I wear Nike Vomero.
I strongly suggest you to have your feet examined. I mean when I went to the store, They made me stand on the paper that showed the pressure points of my feet touching the ground more that the other parts.
When I tried Vomero, I felt I was walking on the clouds. I even wear them in my daily life.
I have knee problems and always try to get the best soles and very confortable shoes for the long hours on set. To me it works to use different brands during the week. I personally like right now Asics Gel Lyte V and New Balance 547 Sport. When Gore Tex is needed I always go for Salomon shoes.
These are the options that work better for me. What about you, any recommendations?
I have a pair of Keen hiking boots for location work & if in the studio & there is no water or soil, I wear a pair of running shoes. I ALWAYS try to stay warm & comfortable. There is nothing worse that being cold & wet when you are working. The job can be difficult enough, who needs more challenges?
cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food!
On set i normally use running shoes (Nike or whatever) light weight and with a good impact absorption. On raining days my Tecnica boots (with gore tex) make me comfortable and dry. I can really recommend this brand. This old boots really last, even got a bye bye post on instagram. This day i got on new pair, different model, same brand.
About foot/shoes situation. For me works. On lunch break (if i got one hour) i lunch in 15m, and go to the camera van, take my shoes off, lay on the hammocks for 30m. And if put on different pair of shoes... is almost like the days is starting again. Power napping works for me.
I think most of the good shoes have already been posted - I personally wear Keen hiking shoes with padded inserts (like Carlos) and I also have two pairs of larger Merrell hiking boots for rain or rough conditions. The real thing that makes me feel better on long days however is compressions socks, or just keeping a change of socks and swapping them out at lunch. I can't tell you the science behind it if there is any, but if I've had a particularly rough morning, swapping socks usually helps... Compression socks are great for longer studio days when you're running around a fair amount, but have time to relax. Theres a camera assistant over here who turned me onto them and I really enjoy them...
personally I use ultraboost, they are extremely comfy. No problem pulling a 18 hour day in those. I live in Norway where it can get cold, VERY cold so during winter I use Neos Navigator 5 outside the ultraboost. The can stand temperatures down to -45 Celsius and still keep you warm and comfy. They are not very fashionable but they have saved me time after time during the coldest days shooting!
I always wear shoes of the german work-wear brand Engelbert Strauss:
They all are really well made, comfortable, breathable and yet waterproof (except for the Asterope), and they don't wear out easily because they are made to be used as work shoes. I also like that they are manufactured in Europe so I don't have to feel guilty when buying them... ;)
I don't know if they are available anywhere outside of Europe though.
