I'm visiting Norway on business next week. Our partner company is an engineering firm (metal fabrication, etc) in the northern part of the country. I expect to spend most of the trip in ordinary meeting rooms, though it seems likely that we might tour their production facilities at some point.
It's a mundane question, but I'm wondering which boots to bring (safety boots will certainly be mandatory in production areas). I have some big clumpy orange calf-high boots which will be good in snow and the workshop, but a bit industrial for sitting around the boardroom table. And a more discreet black lace-up pair that would be acceptable for either.
If I'll be wearing boots indoors and out, I'll take the black ones. But getting them on and off at the door is a chore because of the long laces. So if I'm expected to do that, the orange boots (which slip easily on and off) are much more practical, and better anyway for the outside parts. I have a pair of light slip-on indoor shoes I normally bring for work-boots-stay-outside locations. I just don't know whether Norway falls into that category. Any Norwegians able to comment?
