I have dedicated t-shirts and sweatshirts for the shop for just this very reason. After I do something stupid once, I wear the evidence to remind myself not to do that again. Hot sparks flying through a hole in your shirt is much easier to detect before the flames actually kick up again.

I am trying to find the right length fire-resistant shoestrings for my tennis shoes though. That's a weird feeling to be standing upright, having plenty of support and then all of a sudden you get a snap and your shoe lets go. It's not something you think about, so when it happens you think, "Oh, that was odd". Then it's followed with a line of expletives and throwing shoes, socks, and stepping on hot metal in the floor as you try and escape the fire.

Using the welder @ 250a to cut iron, I had a spoon full of molten stuff roll off the table into a hole in my pant leg and down inside my boot. It came to rest on the top of my foot inside my boot. I didn't know boots could come off that fast.

Shoes are tools--tennis shoes are for tennis, work boots are for working...

+1 on this! And it helps if the rest of the boot is leather...

It happens all the time. I've even set my flame resistant jacket on fire. I was trying a new type of 36 grit ceramic belt on my grinder and hogging away on some tool steel. The spark stream was insane, and I found out why it is called flame resistant and not flame proof

When I put on closed toed shoes of any kind, shit is about to go down. Work or whatever, I just got serious.

Welding in Crocs is kinda fun though. You learn how to do the Messican Hat Dance quick. It'll melt from both directions and they sure do get sticky.
