It may be as simple as a shoe causing you leg and back pain, or worse; so it’s important to check out all of your options. While an industrial shoe can be difficult to maneuver over mountain and rock, I believe the right industrial boot can however guard against water, sprained ankles, and heavy wear. But the right boot for the right person can do it all.
Dr. Martens’ Spate Safety Toe Insulated Boot is a dynamic boot, built for heavy use in all sorts of conditions. The leather shell surrounding the 800 gram Thinsulate insulation is treated well, and rated as waterproof, while the inside provides a breathable cushioned environment perfect for hard work and long treks. They are equipped with a heavy duty safety toe, and baring some major rockslide, I don’t think anything is affecting your toes in these bad boys. One of the best travel-benefiting features is the thick, slip resistent tread on the bottom of the boots. They are also rated as oil resistent, heat resistent and non-marking.
