Waterproof Work Boots Buying Guide

Before getting your work boots for rainy days, there are some things that you should know about. The following tips below will help you in understanding.

See if the boots are actually waterproof

Nothing in this world is actually waterproof. There is a limitation to every waterproof boot. If it has linings, water will eventually find its way inside your boots making your feet wet. That’s why you should check if there are linings.

Although, modern waterproof lining perform slightly better in keeping water away from the boots after being exposed to water for a longer period, they lose their waterproofing potentials. Also, the material of the boots is important. If it’s made of breathable inner padding, there will be a possibility of water leakage.

The pure leather is a good and natural waterproof material but it shouldn’t be exposed to water for too long otherwise they will rot.

 Know your type of waterproof work boot

You will be finding two types of waterproof work boots on the market. The first one is regular modern work boots and there are the ones with longer neck called wellingtons. They both have different applications actually.

The regular work boots are ideal for indoor works. They have other good features of boots for working like a steel toe, outer soles with great grip, shock and electricity proof. Some of them may keep your feet warm and some are designed to take the perspirations away from your feet. These features are really convenient for a factory or construction worker. So, if you work on a construction site or in a factory you should only get a work boot with the waterproof feature if your legs have the possibility of meeting water. Otherwise, you are just good to go with a regular one.

On the other hand, there are the wellingtons. They have a higher neck and they are more suited for a rainy day and outdoor works. These type of boots are more ideal for the muddy situation. They are mainly built with rubber-like materials or leather. The leather ones are a bit on the pricier side where the ones made of rubber are really cheap and they are going to last for a very long time too.

So, if you are not looking for any serious kinds of work on a rainy day and want to keep your feet dry and warm, you should just get a decent rubber wellington.

What extra features to look for in your waterproof work boot?

Pair of boots that are waterproof isn’t only enough for comfortable long shift works. It should have some other qualities in it.

A Steel Toe can protect your fingers from stoning falls on it. The steel toe is an also a mandatory safety feature on some industries or construction firms. You should have them in your boots for complete safety.

The best Insoles for workboots can only ensure the comfort of your feet. If you have happy feet while doing all your hard works, you will be able to do them more efficiently. The boots that come with the third party insoles are always better. Those inner soles are way more comfortable and they can greatly absorb the pressure that you put through your legs. There are some models that can absorb your perspiration to keep your feet dry.

Your boots must have Slip Resistant Outer Sole, otherwise, they won’t be able to protect you from slipping down on oil or water. Having a good grip on your legs has its benefits if you are carrying heavy things, climbing up a ladder or doing other tricky things. Make sure that your boots have them.

The Inner Padding can be an ideal solution if you are to work in the snow. They are used for keeping the heat inside and boots that come with the inner padding are the ideal ones for working on winter days. We should also note here that, these boots are not that much ideal for summer days or warm environment.
