I've just started a new job and been told that they'll buy me a new pair of safety boots, money no object (within reason). I've had too many pairs of crappy work boots over the years so I'm excited to get something better.
Some of what I'll be doing is stomping up and down steep banks, through wet fields, climbing structures etc. What I'd really like is something along the lines of the boreal drom mid that got reviewed last week but with toe caps - does anyone know if such a thing exists?
I wear V12 Avengers for rope access work offshore so i'm in them for 11 hours a shift, comfy from the box and lightweight as well as pretty waterproof with and easy on/off side zip. If you want something even more robust have a look at the Arb boots
I've moved house, moved job and moved country in the last few weeks, not to mention exiting a long term relationship and rejoining my old MRT. So, many apologies that I didn't acknowledge your 7 word comment sooner but my life has been quite busy.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I went with Haix Connexis boots in the end and so far they're ace - comfortable, smart, warm and totally waterproof. Now I've got the gear I just need to get some some sort of idea how to do my new job...
