I can't stand flip flops, even at the beach. I think they are the least comfortable footwear between the thing between the toes and the flopping around.

Wörd 3. Nothing between toes please. Roman style with straps work though

Confession: in the warmer months, I often brew with no shoes on. I usually spend more time inside than in my garage while brewing, figure putting shoes on is a waste of time.

For better or worse

Dude....you just blew yer image!  PLEASE be safe!
s***! And image is everything :(

I'll confess, I brew in flip-flops in the summer (boots in the winter). It's just too much in-and-out to deal with shoes with laces, and if I'm wearing shorts there's no point in using brewing boots. My system also doesn't require me to move any hot liquids by hand.

Yup. I don't lift or pour anything hot. Only lift is my fermentor at the end.

A pump is about the same cost as an ER copay

I brew in the house so it's bare feet for me. Plus, how else am I supposed to know if I forgot to close the ball valve on my mash tun again?

I have hot wet feet brewing today.  But it's from wearing running shoes and spraying down buckets and kegs.  The evaporative effect is actually making this two X 10 gallon brew day almost comfortable in the heat and humidity here in northern IL.....  This batch is ABGNOM ("AB Got nothing on me" - an American lawnmower Pilsner).
