    I've seen a lot of adjusters that prefer skateboard style shoes (vans and airwalks) or basketball shoes like Chuck Taylors over Cougar Paws for steep slope roofs.

    It's not that I'm being cheap.  I would just like to explore all options.  Have any of you used any other type of shoe besides Cougar Paws and had success with it?

    For example, I used to use a Nike tennis shoe designed for clay courts.  Loved it up to an 8 and a newer 9.  Then I'd use cougars for anything over that.  This kept me from having to wear cougars all day when running and gunning.

    What is your experience?

    I prefer my paws!
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    I like your signature. Is that a "deep thought" by Jack Handey?

    For 7/12 or less, skater shoes have always been my favorites. Vans, DC, Airwalk.. there are a range of options out there. They stick like glue, as they are designed to do on the very similar asphalt grip tape on a skateboard deck. DC makes a really nice high-top style that gives good ankle support. If you don't get overly showy or colorful shoes, you can still appear professional, and you don't have to change your shoes every time you climb a ladder. Once it gets any steeper, or you are forced to use ropes, it's time to break out the paws.
