how Should i order as far as sizes cause it says order 2 sizes smaller but that sounds crazy if im a 10 1/2 and need to order 8 1/2 ?  

chill order them true to size im an 11 and order a 12 and ordered a wide because unless you want your toes squeezed to death order them smaller

@Schecter okay great and the steel toe isnt uncomfortable? 

I had some timberland pro work shoes with steel toe in the past and I got them a half size too big (ordered online and didn't get to try them on) and the steel toe was terrible. So hopefully this time I can order one that fits good. A loose steel toe shoe is very uncomfortable.

It is but you want toe room, you can always return them if they're too tight, but you don't want your feet killing your for 8 hours or more in them unless you want bum feet 🤣

It's cool that you can return them if the fit isn't right. I definitely do not want to be uncomfortable for 8+ hours a day. Speaking of....are we standing the entire time?

Yea I definitely got the email. I'm gonna try to register now. In my current job, I've conducted and participated in Zoom meetings. I have a Zoom Pro account. I'll show you a picture my wife took. We had a meeting with NYSED and I had a shirt, tie, sports jacket, and sleep shorts for a 2hr meeting. It was hilarious. lol

I'm still not sure. My brother in law recommended the Timberland Pro's. But I remember my experience with those, even though I had them a full size too big

What I would do is look up the boots on Amazon or on their website to read the reviews before you get the boots, I got the rockports were I first started and they were bulky af, they looked like Frankenstein boots lol

yeah just when you get into a station stand up and point and open the doors, don't do this while sitting down, and if you see a TSS put the seat up, they know we sit just don't sit and chill while they're evaluating you.

I spoke to an NYPD friend. He said the Rockports are pretty dope and not offered to everyone. I don't care how they look, I just want the most comfortable shoe there. So how comfortable are they?

They're good just bulky but overall good boots, we get a free pair once a year so rock them out for a year if anything and then get a new pair next year.

I did as you suggested. The Catepillar's actually got s the best reviews. 4.5/5 from 1605 reviews. I'm just gonna go with that for now. The Rockports on Amazon got like a 3.9/5 from 48 reviews and ppl send they tend to run small so you need like a half size bigger. @Sfredo bro just fyi if you haven't ordered yours yet. It seems the Cats are a bit heavy but I won't mind that too much. Off of my own research it was either the Rockports or the Cats and I went with the Cats. They also look less like a boot. I'm hoping they're comfortable. Also, I did the registration for Tuesday so I'm set for now. 🦾
