Yet another probing thread and these actually hit the spot with all my requirements I listed in this thread (thanks to those who replied); http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=505787&v=1#x6874959

So I'm sure there must be a couple of arborists lurking around here or anyone who has used/ come across these boots?

I'm after the brown model in particular; http://www.frjonesandson.co.uk/products-page/ppe-safety-and-workwear/chainsaw-protective-footwear/ar...

As they have all the features I wanted plus a few extras... ballistic, bombproof whatever, but also the steel toecap is a big benefit as these will be work boots too.

So can anyone corroborate others opinions that they are a crap boot that falls apart after a month and I should stay well away?

In reply to GrendeI: they look a great model, very stylish i should say. My experience and fellow friends say that these type of boot tend to fall apart after a short while due to the non basic build of them. Personally i have not had a pair of this type. If i can recommend a boot it would deffinetly by from Haix, be that from the blue ridge to the trekker. Bombproof boots that i use and abuse everyday. Brilliant from felling in the woods in boggy ground up to your knees to teetering on the thinnest branches. Im also a drystone waller too and use these day to day with stone and also get them covered in cement day to day too
