By now you have read about our closed toed shoe requirement all over our website. Why? Because of idiots! We have developed this specific page to further explain and define closed toed shoes. For you and those idiots that want to argue about their safety.

First and foremost, we will begin why this policy has been put into place. People are stupid and do not care about their own safety. In any rage room, smash room, or break room there are large amounts of broken materials; just like in demolition zones. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates demolition zone shoes to require set thickness of soles, steel toe covering, etcetera. While our facility is not a demolition zone, we do have dangerous materials that can penetrate most common footwear. These materials can consist of different types of glass, ceramics, woods, plastics and metals.

While we are not regulated by OSHA, we do realize the dangers associated with the rage room activity and what a person is exposed to in the room as they walk around. Our implied stance of closed toed shoes is that you should be intelligent enough to understand that you are participating in an activity that can be dangerous, and that you need to take the necessary safety precautions. Unfortunately, we have stupid people argue semantics about closed toed shoes while the tops of their feet and ankles are completely bare and exposed to the same dangers.

In the two years of operations, we have had more cuts on people’s feet than any other injury.

For this reason, we have become adamant about the types of shoes that we will allow in our rage room.

This should be a no-brainer. Steel toed boots or shoes.

Less than ideal but shoes we will allow:

  • Tennis shoes with a rubber sole
  • Cowboy boots
  • Hiking shoes
  • Vans
  • Converse

Shoes we will not allow:

  • Crocs
  • Sandles
  • Flip-Flops/Slides
  • High Heels
  • Toms/Keds
  • Uggs
  • Hey Dudes
  • Any Slip-On shoes
  • Any shoe with a sole that is less than 1 inch thick.

SOCKS

For those of you that think that you are impervious to foot stank, guess what you aren’t! We are now requiring that you wear socks in our smash room. We are not just accepting any old sock, either. Socks need to cover your ankles and fit into a shoe that we allow. We will not allow you to wear crocs with extra thick socks. So don’t ask! If you decide to come sockless, we’ve got you covered. We will sell you a single pair of socks for $10.00. They will meet our bare minimum requirements for our rage room and may or may not properly fit your stank feet.

Shoes in Our Paint Room

We DO NOT provide shoe coverings of any kind for our paint room. We do require that your feet be in some form of shoe in our paint room. Do not expect us to provide coverings for your stanky feet without paying us. If you expect us to care about your shoes as much as you do, you may want to look at our shoes. My wife made me go buy a new pair of shoes because mine had multiple holes in them. I was kicking and hollerin the whole time. We really do not care if you are wearing the latest Ye’s or Jordans. If you didn’t bring any other shoes to cover your feet you may rent our shoes for $5 per session. If you forget your socks, they are $10 per pair (you can keep those). If you cover the shoes in paint, we charge $20 to clean them off (our labor is not free).
