I come from the Land of the Ice and Snow from the Midnight sun where the hot springs blow
I prefer not having a safty toe, the job im at dosent require it at all unless my boss is asking if you know what i mean. But all it dose is gets really cold in the winter and once it is cold it is hard to heat up, so once your feet get cold your pooched. Im a fueler so i just need somthing that is going to be water proof kind of warm in the winter kind of cool in the summer, or breathable, and comfortable on the tarmac. A steel toe dosent really fit the bill for me as much as it did when I was chucking bags, and working around heavy stuff. Id go with a composite toe but i cant find one i like. See the reason im asking is because they give me a boot voucher and it pays for the boot but i can only buy at the store they buy from. The place caries the boot ive been wearing for the past 3 years which is fine but only prob is its steel toe and is cold when its super cold out and not water proof. so that my problem and Just wondering if Danner is a good quality boot and if im going to run into any problems or if i should stick to what ive got, and suck it up.
Ps Id love a Belleville, or a redwing . But they dont have them where im going. Nutz
Thanks guys for your input
Im Thinking Danner Acadia's, with thinsilate 200 and gortex. I work at an Airport and it gets cold here and hot here. Ranges from -40 to +40 those are the extreams. Im not to worried about the temp cus i use about the same weight thinislate on the boots I have now, but they dont have gortex. Are these boots worth the money, are the comfortable and so on. Im on a tarmac all day.
I've had two pairs of Acadias and currenty have a pair of the steel-toed Quarrys. I love Danner boots. My last pair of Acadias I wore the soles flat on. They were still perfectly comfortable, but I almost busted my ass a couple times on wet asphalt.
There may be some other boots worth looking at, but I would imagine you would definitely be happy with the Acadias.
