Do you have a job that requires you to wear some kind of safety gear? When I was growing up my father worked in the heating and air conditioning field and I remember he always had to buy steal toed shoes for safety. It was a big deal for him to get the right pair. Plus there weren’t many places he could buy them from.
Here are some kinds of boots for different safety related jobs:
1. Dickies Donegal Boot – These are a very popular brand. My husband even has a pair of these with the shorter ankle. The Dickies Donegal Boot is ergonomically designed, with a nubuck cow leather upper. Steel in both the toecap and midsole give the protection, whilst the padded tongue and dual density PU sole give you total comfort.
2. Samson Grey Nubuck Hiker – These are great if you want a more athletic look. Nubuck leather hiker boot with waterproof and breathable lining. Lightweight dual density rubber, antistatic, oil and acid resistant sole. With a Padded collar and full bellows padded tongue.
3. Tuffking Black Leather Dealer Boot – These give a more polished look when the pant leg covers the upper half and are easy to pull on or off. They have a Black leather upper with a breathable lining. With a lightweight dual density, oil and acid resistant, antistatic sole. Plus elasticated ankle gussets. They come with steel toe caps and have a penetration resistant steel midsole.
4. Scruffs Gravity Rigger Boot Brown – If you need something a little more high-ankled for wetness than these are perfect. They are equipped with leather uppers, steel toes as well as midsoles. Fleece-lined with triple-stitched seams and ankle-support design provide workers protection and comfort during heavy-duty work.
5. Giffard Newton Black Microfibre Lace Shoe – These would be perfect for my husband since he is on his feet a lot. If your job requires you to wear something a little more dressy but you still need the comfort these are great. They are extremely lightweight with black breathable microfiber lace up. High slip resistance. Would be ideal for anyone in the food industry.
6. Samson XL Black Trainer Shoe – I love the look of this pair. They are black leather with grey reflective trim. Penetration resistant composite midsole for protection and the added benefit of greater sole flexibility. Plus an anti scuff heel protector and support.
7. Dickies Industrial Rigger Brown – Want more of a western style? Than these should be perfect. They have an oil resistant nitrile rubber sole with goodyear welted construction. Plus a steel midsole for underfoot protection
Do you have a job where you have to wear any of these type shoes? If so do you have a favorite type or brand?
