Product Review – Steel Blue Safety Boots
Finally took the hint and replaced my old T-Boots which were looking somewhat unprofessional. I had heard all about how good the Steel Blue Boots were from people I had met at various workplaces. I even got to meet Dennis Lillee at the safety Show (he is involved with the company somehow). They also offer a comfort guarantee.
I have always been a bit dubious about buying things like shoes on-line as you can’t really try them on properly. Anyway, all the boots I have ever worn were size 10 so I bit the bullet and went online. Best online shop I found was BUY BOOTS (no mucking around with that name). They promised fast delivery – the boots arrived the next day! – see if you can do better next time :-). I bought the Argyles – see photo and rubbed a bit of dirt on them before going out in public.
Anyway, I don’t want to rabbit on but these are the most comfortable safety boots I have ever worn, I did a 3 day mine site visit without wearing them in and for 3 days it was like walking on a cloud only with really good ankle support. I have a wide foot and usually have problems with rubbing on the edge of the toe cap – but not this time. The quality is excellent, right down to the laces. They are really easy to get on and off for the airport security scanner!
Update: My views on Steel Blues have changed a lot since I first wrote this 5 years ago – see the comments below
