The MTA Bought a Whole Lot of Boots, and They Are Ugly

NYC Transit just spent $10,000-plus on a bunch of high-tech work boots (plus vests, safety glasses, and flashlights) for IT workers who "typically spend their days messing around computer servers, not walking the tracks," reports amNewYork.

Oops. Meanwhile, officials head to the White House today to try to convince Biden & Co. that New York needs $500 million to complete the 7 Line extension. And then there's that tricky little $450 million MTA budget gap.

If only the shoes were attractive, this might make some sense.

MTA shitkickers not ugly enough for you? How about man-jellies?
