Work boots

Hi all its time for new boots again:(My current timberland pro are really comfortable and supportive etc but don't last more than 9 months! The last pair were about £85 and I thought it was worth it. But they have jumped up to £135 since last time so I'm looking for other options.I'm after something that has some kind of anti fatigue sole/insole.So what do you people use? I don't mind paying decent money and will get another pair of the timberland ones if i can't get anything betterThanks in advance Richard

  • DeWalt Challengers for the past 5 years. Extremely comfortable & totally weatherproof.  The secret is to set up an ebay search for your size.  I paid £40 for my last pair - they are usually twice that.

    Mine are engelbert Strauss, Elten I think they're called? Wind proof, rain proof the works. Lightest boot on the website I believe and unbelievably comfortable. I'd be hard persuaded to try anything else!

    I use Dewalt Challenger 2 boots. Whilst I am not full time in the trade, they are comfy, waterproof and robust. Would be very interested to see further replies as I am sure most would like to get a decent boot without a high price tag! 

  • I bought some brown Haix boots from an army surplus store in Dorset...
    They are the Badgers nadgers!!!
    Big, strong, waterproof, study seams and Brown!!
    All for £30! Bargain-tastic.
    Never even heard of Haix before...
    If I was buying new, Engelbert Strauss would be the place I'd be lookin.
  • I would only buy meindl chainsaw boots. Before I started tree work used to just wear the standard dewalt or dickies boots gardening and when I got home the relief when I took them off was to die for. With meindl I get home walk the dog potter about. Comfy waterproof and make ur ankles feel impossible to turn.

    My last couple of pairs have been the Buckler Buckshot boots. They are very comfy, supportive and waterproof. They don't last as long as others but I like them. On the other foot (or boot) I just bought some Hyena waterproof rigger boots to replace my leaky steel toed wellies, so far not very impressed. Very stiff and they rub. To be fair they need a little more wearing in so I really hope they get better!

      I too have recently bought the waterproof Hyena Riggers. They were initially very rigid and a tad uncomfortable but after a weeks wear I now find they are fine. I bought them to give the De Walt Challenger 2 boots a break from trudging through long wet grass and leaves as I'm pretty damn pleased with the Challengers and don't want to take liberties with them! I have to add, I've binned my walking boots now (£100+ and still leak), and take the workboots out when I'm hiking the Peaks, they really are that comfortable.

        They are much better after some more wearing in, now pretty comfortable. They are a bit stiff in the morning if not brought in at night

      I got some Buckler B750's waterproof, breathable, again very comfy. I can wear them all day no problem...

    Thanks for all the replies people:)
    Too much to choose from now though!
