Choosing the Best Boot

Lineman and other blue collar workers are on their feet for the better part of the day and choosing the right boots can make that reality a little less daunting. There are a few considerations that you should make if you choosing a new pair of boots.

Are they comfortable? 

While comfort may seem frivolous, anyone who has worn an uncomfortable boot for any amount of time knows that it’s really the most important thing. Where comfort doesn’t compromise safety, it should be considered with extreme attention. Comfort is a safety consideration, however.

Are they safe?

Certain environments require certain materials in the upper part of the boot or in the sole portion of the boot. Also, some environments require that you have a certain level of toe protection or that the boots you are wearing are a certain height. Seasoned veterans are typically aware of these considerations, but those who are new to a work environment shouldn’t hesitate to ask their new employer what the best boot option is for their work conditions.

Safe and comfortable boots are key to a better workday. Additionally, consider these thoughts when buying a new pair of boots:

  • Are they too heavy?
  • Is there enough room for your toes?
  • Are they too narrow or too wide?
  • Do they rub your heel when you walk?

Get the right boots so that at the end of the day, your dogs aren’t barking back at you all night long.
