    Are there ANY comfortable safety shoes?

    Just started my first blue collar job at a warehouse, everything is alrite except my feet are very tired at the end of the day. Yesterday i must have walked a fair few miles within the warehouse and these agency-standard safety shoes are just plain crap. My feet are used to soft nike presto shoes so im probably asking too much but are there ANY comfortable safety shoes and where can i get them?

    thanks

    Yes, its a cheffy website, but they do very comfy safety shoes with a decent insole so your feet don'tfeel like you've been walking on splintered planks at the end of the day.

    The steel toe-capped safety trainer might be right up your street.

    I have to count myself a bit of a connoisseur of safety footwear. Over the past 7 years I have been through most brands, as my job involves forklift trucks, wearing gas masks and explosive chemicals. The best shoes I have found are made by Jallatte, unlike other shoes the toe cap and mid sole are made of composite material rather than steel. Have the sound safety rating as steel but weigh a hell of a lot less. My ones cost around £75 by the company buy them for me

    PS theydo boots and shoes. tHey are antistatic as well, so wont go bang in dusty places

    and whatever you buy, go to your local Wilkinsons and buy a load of their insoles.

    They do loads of versions...all cheaper than any shoe shop. Then change them every 2 or 3 months.

    Keep your feet cushioned and you'll be comfy and the shoes will last longer

    The difference in opinions makes it even harder

    Do you think these safety trainers should beat most boots as far as comfort goes?

    (go here, click on page 2, second shoe on the right column)

    I dont really care about the safety of it, its just one of those warehouse rules that i cant get around

    After years of trying different boots I settled with Doc Martens. They are good for a year of all day heavy wear and tear in an engineering environment, should be fine for a wharehouse.

    I would recommend not spamming the hell out of the forums and ESPECIALLY not spamming the anti-spam thread... 'cos it only makes me angry when I have to go through, delete all your posts, delete THIS post and then ban you.

    You wasted my time and your own time and gained nothing except my wishes that you suffer from painful Chalfonts and have to carry a soft cushion with you for the rest of your days... even if your feet are comfy and safe.

    Good job I'm not suspicious - as 5 unconnected posts followed by a url posting ... on a 4 year old thread... would look like a spammer to me.
