Boots and Shoes?


I have been doing a lot of wood working, and some light circuit work. The other day I had my tennis shoes slip while in the garage .

Does anyone know of a good work boot that isn't too high up the ankle?

I have heard of Wolverine being a good boot, but I am not too sure.

Thanks

Perhaps Carolina Boots....

I am not a boot expert but I have heard that people like them.

What did you slip on? Most tennis shoes have decent grip, so I'm not sure work boots will help you much more. So you might just want to eliminate whatever you slipped on.

But yes, Wolverine are a decent brand. I've got a pair that are steel toed and loot just like a hiking shoe.

I wouldn't put a boot on my foot unless it were an American made red wing.

Many of the Red Wing boots are made in China....along with 99% of what all of us buy.

They make many styles both out of the country and domestically. I pay extra for the American made version.

if your in the states, wolverine, cofra, timberland all make good boots. redwings have gone downhill.

if your just in your home shop sneakers would be fine honestly, youll have better grip with them than with a pair of saftery boots where your on a concrete floor..

i think it depends on price. The more you pay, the better product you get.. don't buy cheap boots/shoes because it usually lasts very short
