Choosing Boots

Whether it’s for work or play, everyone should own a pair of boots. They are ideal for the current climate, because they really keep your feet warm and usually have a bit more grip than normal shoes.

Early boots consisted of separate leggings, soles and uppers, worn together to protect the ankle more than shoes or sandals, and date as far back as 1000 B.C. There are many different types of boot, depending on the occasion or use. Walking boots generally have a thick rubberised sole to make walking long distances more comfortable an reduce the strain on the feet and ankle. Work boots for men and women, have a steel toe cap to protect the foot from falling objects and compression. Winter boots are thickly insulated boots which keep your foot warm and comfortable and have an excellent grip to stop you from falling over in the ice.
