    .....my wife keeps threatening to put a bell on me.
    When our kids were toddlers, as well as a bit older, we did just that to help keep track of those fast little suckers.........

    For me it's quiet, unless I have on the cowboy boots...clunk clunk clunk

    My father-in-law nicknamed my husband, "The Ghost" when he was little because he was so sneaky. He is pretty quiet and wears very quiet shoes.

    I, on the other hand, am the high-heeled wearing, pistol packin', purse tottin' wifey.

    Most of my shoes (at least the ones that make my legs look REALLY good) announce my presence with a sharp, "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK!"

    I have my sneakers and comfy shoes that I could sneak up on a cat with, but what's the fun of those?

    You gotta love the looks on people's faces when you go into a range wearing high-heels and punch out the x-ring with a .45.

    It's also fun when you work at a gun shop and are sweeping the range and your manager comes in and says, "I need a cammera. I think this is the only time in my entire life I saw a woman sweeping up a gun range, much less a woman sweeping a gun range in high heels."

    Practical? HELL NO! But fun.

    If I ever have to run, I'll ditch the shoes. Every time I've ever had to run in high-heels I've sworn it was the very LAST time, but somehow there always manages to be one more. If my life was on the line they'd be gone, but they can make great weapons, too. Anyone ever see "Singe White Female?" Yeah.. my inspiration for impractical shoes.

    Depends !! Really
    In the 70s I went to school on the GI Bill in the day
    and worked Security Guard at night
    I was told by the Co that once I pulled my weapon
    ( a 38 that ratteld when I shook it) I was on my own
    So when I made my rounds I would bump things,
    wistle.sing make all kind of noise
    I wanted the GB to see me and get out of the ao
    I did not want get in a gunfight fo $3.10 an hr
    When outnumbered 2 to 1.

    Shoes? All those years on the boat I was barefoot, I even had a nice even suntan on my toes. Coming ashore has been a real rude shock and my feet are not happy! But even though I'm forced to I prefer the quiet sneaky kind.........

    Normally 800 series NB unless I am riding my bike.

    Then it is my black Engineer boots with the steel toe N heel plates, it is kind of hard to sneak up on any one at 6'4" Black full head gear N all that tasseled leather, coat, chaps, gloves, tends to intimidate the H E double L out of most who see me coming.

    I wonder how many cows had to die for that stuff?

    Quiet. I tend to surprise my co workers, most of the time by accident.

    Heck, at 350 I am very quiet. But I do carry it well as I have the frame for it.

    I wear soft rubber boat shoes that are excellent even when wet on tile.

    As a guy, I have to admit that men are attuned to the sound of heels. There is no quicker way to halt conversation and make our heads swivel than to seek the source of an echoing CLICK CLICK CLICK on a tile floor... it's instinct!

    Quiet!

    Loud shoes (click, click, squish, squish) announces "I'm Coming - I'm coming" and who wants THAT??
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
