Over the past 30 years of pouring concrete, I have found the best clothing and shoes to wear while pouring concrete. There are many things you need to consider when choosing what to wear-
- Flexibility (you need full range of motion while working)
- Breathable (on hot summer days you do not want to overheat)
- Protection (protect yourself from the concrete)
- Temperature / Season
On this page I will guide you to choosing the correct concrete wear!
Hello, my name is Mike Day and I’m the owner of Day’s Concrete Floors located in Maine. In Maine, we experience every season, very hot summers and even colder winters.

I have recently created apparel that I wear everyday to pour concrete. If you’d like to buy something, click HERE. My apparel includes:

It is important to wear the correct footwear when pouring concrete. Always wear rubber boots while working in the concrete. Afterwards, when you begin to finish the concrete, I usually change into sneakers.
