Safety work shoes/trainers

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get a new pair, I work indoors so they don't have to be waterproof.

They'll need a steel toe, an i need a real comfy pair as I'm on my feet all day.

Can anyone recommend a pair?

Thanks in advance.

Look for a composite toe not a steel toe , a lot lighter and easier on the legs .

I wear a comfy pair of walking boots when I,m in places that insist on safety boots have been asked several times if they have steel toe caps and just say yes, never been questioned further (they don’t) but are comfortable to wear all day and strong enough to save my toes if I did drop something on my foot or run my toes over when I,m on the bin wagon, I do agency work 2/3 days a week in different places and have never been pulled up about them 👍👍

A lad I knew lost a toe wearing trainers in the workplace,  queuing to get back in the factory after break and someone knocked the fire extinguisher off its bracket only a ft or so off the floor and it chopped his toe off 😯

I ripped my big toe clean off in a swimming pool years ago, had it sewn back on again, in bath royal, no ones fault no one to blame sometimes things just happen, 😂
