Looking for Good Outdoor Safety Boots

Post by silbchris » Wed Sep 18, 2019 2:31 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm Chris and new to Health and Safety Tips!

I'm starting some building work on the outside of my house and need some good safety boots, kind of like these [https://www.arco.co.uk/search/Footwear/_/N-86c], that will be good in all weathers and have steel caps

Anyone got any recommendations?

Cheers

Steel Toecap rigger boots are the goto for keeping your feet warm dry and protected from dropped bricks in the winter.
There are other suppliers than Arco (although there's nothing wrong with them) and I often buy boots for my own DIY projects from my local petrol station who stock amblers and portwest boots, shoes and trainers. You'll probably find your local builder's merchants and hire shops can provide safety footwear too, and of course there's the online giants if you don't mind buying before you try.
If it isn't broken, that doesn't mean you can't improve it. (Do three negatives make a positive ?)
