You probably do, unless they are a reimbursed expense. Look at the employee handbook.

Great question! If the shoes are specialized for work (e.g. non-slip, steel toe boots, special unique color (not black), the answer is most likely yes pursuant to California labor code section 2802. I have prosecuted many 2802 shoe cases, and employers cannot do that.

You probably must pay for them but they are tax deductible. The exception would be if you and a written agreement or your union's collective bargaining agreement require that your employer pay.
