    I would never wear combat boots in the shop. They offer almost no protection from the concrete, and the ankle support kills your movement, they are hot and expensive. If you are welding you can be guaranteed a hot bit of slag will melt its way through the tongue and you will never get the boot off before that slag is burned its way half way into your foot. Wrong tool for the job. Get something with good support and some actual comfort built in. Combat boots are good at holding up in difficult environments... that is pretty much it.

    where do you guys get those boots? i wear sketchers shoes as they're the only ones that i can comfortably walk around in. i have arthritis and by the end of the day my feet are toast. boots would be a better choice for me, but i haven't been able to get something i can wear all day long. they discontinued the red wings i was using and the new ones aren't as good.
