    I have a addiction to trainers so when I've had a pair a while they then get demoted to work trainers currently wear Nike huaraches
    Very light comfy and if doin ladder work I like to be able to feel bit ladder rung under foot with work boots I could never get a feel for were my feet were on the ladders
    How are you getting your feet wet? Do you stand right under the window when using wfp??

    Yeah I just wear comfy trainers, I try a load on and then pick the comfiest/grippiest. Currently it's s pair of Nike trainers, nice spongy cushioning is important for being on ya' feet all day ...

    I tried various shoes to try and keep my feet dry but have given up and just wear trainers too. I just buy £10 pairs from Asda :) and go through about 3 pairs a year.

    Hi
    Gore tex fell running trainers are comfy have excellent grip and totally waterproof and breathable.
    Inov8 do a great pair also merrol are good. Bit expensive but you only get what you pay for.
    If your cleaning windows 5 days a week you will have the cash.
