Depends on what you're wearing them for! Shlopping about on a muddy site then you want a set of Scruffs Riggers boots, nipping into an office block to change a lightbulb and you want some ppe trainers! Cat's are good if you can afford the price tag, if not then you can pick up perfectly good unbranded steel toe boots from wholesale ppe suppliers for £15 - wear them for six months and throw them away!

Dewalt boots have last me longest normally get 12 to 18 months out of them. I would take them grafters back and tell them there not fit for purpose and you want your money back

really need steeltoe capped boots, working a fair bit on different building sites.

the last pair i got from springfields and they got wrecked in 2 months, looking for a better pair, had a pair of cats before and was really disappointed with them.

will quite happily pay upto 50-60. working 5-7 days a week atm and normally 10-12 hour days

In my opinion,there are NO finer boots than Redwing.Wore them for thirty years (not same pair!) They come in half sizes,half a dozen widths and 'Last numbers' (actual foot shape).Comfy,waterproof and never had foot problems and have,in the past,had em' on for 30 odd hours at a time during emergency work.Now for the sad bit,Very expensive and to have choice,its a Stateside order!

Mine came from Toolstation of all places... on their website they're just listed as "safety site boots" but the pair I have are excellent, quality is on par with any of the branded stuff
