who makes best steel toed boot and shoe
IMHO Altberg, nice and warm and waterproof!
stay away from the dewalt
a decent boot but better are available
well thats peed on my chips then. i was going to say i use dewalt goretex boots and they last abou six months. my feet dont smell anymore as my customers never tire of telling me
Arco make a boot called the Groucho, there comfortable and not that heavy.
just had a look on arco site but couldnt find groucho
would agree with wondering Dewalt challengers are probably the most comfortable boot I have had (straight out of the box too and totally waterproof but for 60 quids I would expect them to last longer than 5 months the tops looked like new but the soles are too soft and wore right through to the nail bars both sole and heal.
OK for workshop or light site work but I wont be buying another pair. Have had a pair of Scrutts for the past 6 months and they hardley look worn .
suddenly my feet hurt
i dont mind paying £60 every six months as they get alot of hammer and you can spend hundreds on trainers.(if your a chav). anyway where do i look at scrutts as cant find on net
I found the dewalt trainer feckin ****, new pair of socks every day. I have the challengers now. So verrrrry comfortable, I did go through the toes within two week (to the steel) but I was on my knees the the whole time, back up on my feet know and they are lovely despite the shiny toes.
I found that they are the most comfortablist straight from the box, I call them pammy coz they got a nice gel pad under the heel.
Tanned Suede boots from price less shoes in Reading £15 per pair.
Dewalt boots very comfortable but ware badly, I also wear trainer boots from www.sevasafe.co.uk (cant remember wat there called off hand)
None of them are wide enough for my feet, never found a pair yet that I could wear for more than two hours without being crippled.
john you need to sit down and drink more tea
Timberland Pro, a pair I originally bought in the USA but now available here, best pair of boots I've ever owned still going strong after 4 years.
forgot to add the link....
i only wanna spend 50-60 quid, being a tight b***d

Carpet slippers with two crushed baked bean tins pink gripped to the toes.... look lovely in a nice tartan!
I always use Arco footware nice & wide they last 6 months of hard use.
