We have concentrated on four well known brands that are regarded as producing excellent work footwear, and these are all names that are well known across the world. We have also included a few examples of women’s work boots, as it is often forgotten that women also often have to work in a hazardous environment.
The Caterpillar brand will be known beyond the arena of working boots as this excellent brand has become something of a style icon in its own right. Nevertheless, as the examples we chose display the company is still geared towards creating the safest and most comfortable boots that can be made and when it comes to pricing few can beat the excellent range of prices that Caterpillar offers.
Danner is a name that is highly regarded by those who wear quality working footwear, for this excellent brand is the maker of some of the world’s most durable and impressive footwear. Fully triple stitched leather construction is one of the Danner trademarks, and these boots offer the absolute ultimate in protection and comfort, as well as insulation against the elements.
Working in the cold is something that comes with its own hazards, and we found that the range of boots from Chippewa was particularly impressive in this area. Full insulation across a widely varying range of thicknesses, excellent construction and design and full waterproof protection are just some of the features these excellent boots have to offer, and the price range is as varied as the styles.
Finally we looked at the Carolina range of footwear, and this is another well regarded and well known brand that has much to offer. With superbly innovative removable insoles and excellent leather construction, the quality is difficult to fault while the prices remain on the good side of affordable.
The selections we have shown may be some of the best work boots on the market but they represent just a small proportion of those available from the brands chosen and elsewhere, and we hope that this guide goes some way to helping you get a grip on the market.
