I had these ones tuff toed. My last pair lasted less than a year before some goon ran over my foot. The boot did its job, no harm to my foot, but the leather was torn down to the cap. Had to replace them. These should last considerably longer.
Older pic. They're all scarred up now. Still very comfortable.
I have looked at coal miner's boots, Revs. And I love them, but they are all insulated. That's fine in the winter, but then when it gets to 95 degrees, and I'm kitted up in jeans and a hardhat also, it's not so good.
Otherwise I would already have a pair of Gravel Pits:
Structural firefighting boots would also work:
Matterhorn Search And Rescue boots. The NFPA standards for fire boots are grueling, and anything that can withstand that, might have a chance at my job.
The other problem with the Matterhorns is that I would have to pay the whole cost out of pocket.
So I'm pretty well left to make do with what I've got...
