For years I used to wear the basic black miners safety boot. They lasted a year, apart from wet weather which I wear wellies.

Now we have all the padded nonsense they just rip to bits putting them on.

8-10 months now for modern and twice the price boots.

Also the China syndrome, how cheap can it be made has a major effect. I look at toys in shops and feel sorry for the cheap unrealistic tat kids can get. This is especially noticeable with the starwars stuff at the moment.

I have meindl airstream chainsaw boots which I only use for saw work £174!


I assume those don't have toe caps in them as they say for hunting?


No toe protection, use the chainsaw boots if i need that 

I find i prefer the lighter boots, dont weigh on the old hips as much
