I have some steel toe capped boots but the can be a tad cumbersome so as these where discounted down to £30 I picked up a pair today.

Looks good and they seem comfortable so far and at least I don't look like a CFC Shed boy in boots coloured like Timberlands.........

Still like wearing the ole (Jallatte) rigger boots, but not many places let you these days so mostly kept in garage for random stuff in the garden..

tried all sorts. boots, shoes, trainers. not yet found anything that does not cripple my feet within 2 hours. these are supposed to save us from injury, not cause it. finally resorted to hiking boots that look like steelies, but aren't. not bin found out yet.

I find the catapiller boots good and comfortable for all day use, they take a week to bed in and I find that not doing the top loops up on the laces helps a lot.

Thought you minced around on site in flip flops a kaftan with a herbal rollup and an orange dot on your forehead ;o))))

100% agree with you, although I think the last pair were inferior to the earlier design .
I have worn Caterpillar boots since I was a youth , the best being the "Walking Machine " design. They are hard wearing , comfortable and last the distance.
They newer ones are not as comfortable ; it could be that I am decrepit now of course and maybe sending me a message. :)

I use grisport. Really impressed with them on my 3rd pair, other 2 lasted about 18 months each so pretty good for 55 quid

Won't the steal toe caps slow you down running away, when you get caught with the neighbours wife? :)
She runs your diary, I am safe........ I like working in dangerous environments and helping the aged.........
