Painting plywood flooring


I've got a workshop (converted garage from the 1940s) with plywood flooring. I'd like to paint / protect it a bit. Any idea on what sort of paint would work best?

For context, I believe the floor sits a few inches above a concrete slab. I'm not sure much else beyond that.

I'm not looking for anything too exciting, just something that'll make the area easy to sweep/clean and will be durable for walking, working on.

Thanks very much.

Porch paint would probably be best.

An oil base porch and deck enamel will wear better than it's latex counterpart. You might also consider just applying a couple of coats of a satin poly as it won't show as bad as paint when it wears down.
