The best work boots whether you’re on or off the job
While you can look for looks and functionality with work boots, what you really need with work boots are comfort and durability. Work boots for men have to offer good support and stability, cushion your feet and provide the best traction ever to work on different surfaces. Let’s take a look at some boots that feature all these qualities and more:
Types of work boots
Buy work boots according to your line of work.
Steel toe boots are absolutely necessary for heavy-duty work that involves lifting of heavy objects.
Electrical hazard boots are perfect to protect your feet from electrical current as they keep feet insulated.
Waterproof boots or in some cases water-resistant and insulated boots are ideal to keep feet dry while working outdoors in wet conditions.
When your job involves working on uneven surfaces and slippery or oily terrain, choose slip-resistant boots that have specially designed soles to provide traction.
What to look for in work boots
Work boots must be easy to pull on or off. Georgia boots BUILT pull-on work boots with steel toe are full-grain leather work boots. They have easy-on leather pull straps with comfortable cushioning. The Georgia boots are lightweight and slip-resistant. They have rubber outsole and have moisture-wicking footbed to keep feet dry.
Boots, leather pull-on work boots that have molded outsole and uppers are more durable than boots that are stitched or glued together.
Completely avoid white boots. Work boots in white will get dirty and are almost impossible to clean and maintain. It’s better to go with boots like men’s Georgia Giant boots in full grain leather. They have unlined quarters, steel shank and are oil and slip-resistant with Goodyear welt construction.
Work boots should be suitable for the weather you’re working in. Insulated boots that protect feet against the elements and that are breathable are the best kind.
