I have been a frequent flier and international traveler. I enrolled in Global Entry and therefore often get TSA precheck. They say you donít have to remove your shoes but, my cowboy boots have a steel shank and set off the detector. So I always assume you MUST take your boots off. I did it out of course. My boots fit perfectly so I can pull them off easily but tall lace-ups would be almost impossible and would piss off your fellow travelers. Put them in your luggage.
: : Sorry for the man who is standby for my flight.. must be a long day for him..
: a bit off the subject, has anyone gone thru the TSA inspection wearing a pair of real tall lace-up boots and had to unlace them? : Just a crazy thought!
