Keep your feet dry! First, be sure to
wear socks that wick moisture away from your feet and have
an extra pair on hand for mid-day changes. Second,
thoroughly dry the inside of your boots by wadding up
newspaper and placing it inside the boot to absorb moisture.
Fully open your boots and untie laces when drying.
Consider activity levels when deciding the proper
insulation/comfort rating. If you're driving a tow motor, a
higher level of insulation will be required to keep feet
warm and safe. More active jobs require a lower insulation
level. Also, if you have circulation problems, consider a
higher level of insulation for increased safety.
Thermoplastic and steel toes are capable of resisting a
heavy falling object. Safety toes protect you from injury
Wet conditions require a boot that has more surface contact.
Consider your environment and slip resistance ratings to
choose the best boot.
Boots should not fit too tight. To provide proper
insulation, some air space is needed between the foot and
lining of the boot. When sizing boots, try them on with the
socks you wear with them. Try our Leather Boot Sock/32 to go
with leather boots or our SuperSock/36 to go with Pac Boots.
Never put leather boots near direct heat. It destroys the
leather, melts the sole materials and causes bonding agents
to loose their grip.
