Thread: Airport friendly boots?

  1. #1
    My shoes are about to start flapping. I've been thinking about some boots, but it seems like they all either have a steel shank or look like pleather. Any one have boots that don't beep?

    any of their lite series are airport friendly and you pay no tax online. comfortable and light weight.

    Justin Boots has an airport friendly version not sure what its called maybe the Roper.

    Rockport has some as does Johnston and Murphy (I believe all of their shoes are airport friendly) If you go with J&M use the one in Newark. We get a discount, no sales tax and they will ship them to you for free.

    If you are going for cowboy, Justin makes a roper without a steel shank, Ariat does as well.
    I'm not sure about Lucchese. But they make a **** fine boot. The best around I think. If your going this route I would look into it. They cost more but are worth every penny!

    Try Zappos.com. They have a section for airport friendly shoes and boots.

    Dockers Workforce. A slip on shoe that is designed for service people, such as bartenders and waiters. Very comfortable and has a slip resistant bottom to help with spills and such. (I was a bartender and once slipped on a lime - not fun).

    Best shoes I've had since I started working here. Around 40 dollars at Kohl's.

    Ariat Black Ropers

    I've had mine for a year now and they are extremely comfortable. They have flown almost 1000 hrs now in them and they still look like new. Best part is they have never set off the alarm at the TSA checkpoint.

    I'll second the Ariats.... mine have endured 2 winters now, starting into a third with nothing but a scratch on the side I got wearing them to do some work around the lakehouse.... Comfortable, no TSA issues, and not to expensive. I do like the Justin roper boot as well, but they are not as consistent on the metal detector issues, some boots have the steel shank, others fiberglass, and its hard to find out which is which.
