Today, as the headline indicates, I am featuring the Isambard Safety Toe Waterproof boot by Dr. Martens. Why feature such a heavy duty shoe? Well, because this is a serious shoe for a serious traveler. Sure, these boots are made for industrial workers, but in all honesty, I would wear these bad boys to a lot of the areas I seem to find myself when I’m looking for the perfect photo. The Isambard boots are super heavy duty, yet they don’t add a ton of weight to your feet, which is another big characteristic to consider when choosing the right shoe.
The Isambard Safety Toe Waterproof boot has an innovative design that provides the user a snug, form fit, but also with a lot of other features. Not only is it very well made with quality materials, it has special material on the tongue and ankle that helps your foot breath. The material is thick and strong, and is non-marking, so you don’t have to worry too much about ruining them wherever you go. Additionally, what I found most impressive was that they are heat resistant and waterproof.
I found Dr. Martens’ Isambard boot to be the ultimate boot for almost any travel location. Sure, I would never suggest this boot for someone simply strolling the streets in Paris, or mountain climbing a rocky slope, because there’s footwear out there that better caters to that particular sport. Just by simply holding this shoe in hand, it’s apparent of how high quality and how strong Dr. Martens made them. The industrial safety shoe provides a very stiff toe that will give you nearly total protection in almost any situation in the wild, and the thick tread, advertised as slip resistent, is built for rough terrain. The Isambard boots are great for tough travel, in my opinion.
