Default Another Boot Thread

Looking for new uniform boots, wondering if I should go steel toe. I have composite toes on mine. Im wondering whos worn steel toes for long periods of time, if they feel unbalnced or such?

Steel toes are a big no-no if you`re going to be in any kind of cold weather. Nobody wears issued boots in the Canadian military and they don`t care, but you are NOT to wear steel toes.

I wore a pair for a while. Of course, they weigh more, but I got used to it. My favorite pair were Navy hot weather boots, so they had Nomex uppers, which compensated a bit for the extra weight of the steel toes. (And I haven't seen them since I moved. Damn, I loved those boots.)

These are the best boots I have ever owned


If you get these, break them in before you use them heavily and buy some extra insole

I just ordered some danner strikers on sale with side zip and composite safety toe, what are you using?

Ive heard danner takes forever to break in but once they are tehre orgasmically good
