Picking the Right Work Boots

hilsher's general store port trevorton work bootsYou might think that one pair of work boots is just as good as another, but there are actually a few good guidelines to consider when choosing the right pair of boots. We sell work boots in Port Trevorton, so we have a few suggestions for you the next time you’re in the market for a new pair.

No matter where you work or what tasks you need work boots for, proper foot gear is essential to your safety and well-being. After all, your feet are what carry you around, so if anything happens to them, your mobility may be limited and then you can’t get your work done.

For example, if you work in construction, then you probably want work boots that have a steel toe. Steel toe work boots are great for areas that include heavy equipment or building materials. Steel toe work boots are also a good choice for those who work outdoors since steel tends to conduct heat better than some other materials out there, which could help keep your feet warm on a cold day.

What kind of weather conditions do you usually deal with when doing your work? If you work in areas that are prone to getting muddy when it rains, then you probably want to consider work boots that are made out of rubber and are waterproof. You might even want rubber boots that are insulated for when the weather turns cold.

Take a look at the soles of the work boots too. If you work at a construction site, you definitely want soles that will not be easily punctured by an errant nail or another sharp object. You also want to be sure that the sole has a good grip on the bottom so you don’t accidentally slip and fall.

Coming in and trying on work boots is another important step to getting the right kind of boot. You want to make sure they are comfortable to wear and that your feet and toes are not uncomfortable. You also want to be sure the work boots do not fit too tightly or too loosely since both of these can cause problems with the way you walk and move around. We carry some of the most popular brands of work boots on the market today like Caterpillar, Red Wing, Wolverine and more.
