Ok...really, really, really comfortable!


Update...a courtesy update for those who may have some of the same issues.

Over the past ten years working on cement and bitumen I have had issue with the large knuckle on the big toe of each foot being swollen and painful, to the extent that as I walked I didn't so much limp as collapsed forward in a painful slouch. This had been going on for so long that I hadn't even noticed it.

Well I have been wearing these boots for for just over two days and the right foot has stopped hurting entirely, and the left foot is well on it's way to doing the same, with only some niggling pain when out of the boots.

My stance and gait have changed in that I am standing and walking more upright with no slouch or quasi collapse when I walk...though the tendons inside my left ankle and left knee are somewhat strained due to this change it is not painful or onerous.

My take away here is fuck cheap work boots...and good boots are worth every single penny spent.

Have been using these in the paddock on and off for the past couple of weeks, they are getting even more comfortable to wear but one has to be sure to lift the entire foot off the ground as the sole grip is extremely aggressive. To the point of ripping a knee or hip if one is too thoughtless.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that my daughter and I both picked up a pair of Hunters Element gaiters for when we stomp through lignum after pigs...or fallow.
Should keep Bathurst burr, grass seed, and snakes out of our socks.

It depends on the conditions. If it's here in my home area, it's typically warm and dry I'll wear my lightweight boots. If there's snow on the ground and it's muddy, I'll be wearing my heavy boots for the additional protection they provide.

Shoe and boot stretchers work well for problem areas on footwear.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

Not sure how you think that works on steelcaps.
