lol When I used to hunt deer all winter one old bloke on the crew bought all his clothes and shoes from the Op shop. One week he turned up with a pair of Bata Scout school shoes ops we told him he'd just wasted his money he'd be slipping all over the joint and could end up breaking his leg or ankle. Next week he turned up in a pair of footy boots and said whadya reckon about these lol he was 70 at the time 1st and only time I've ever seen anyone that age in footy boots.

What are the ones to go for?
I use Redbacks but the last I got was 2 yrs ago. I used to like Rossi but when I took my probe in to the shop it went off on them! Previously my Rossi were ok. What others has anyone tried that dont have staples or metal that are slip on? Some are ok but dont come in sizes bigger than 12. Being said, that 12 is 12 Chinese size and more like a 10! Like much clothing is now. Try on a Xl, an XXl, an XXXl and all thats bigger is the gut fit. The sleeves are all the same length! They dont seem to take into account that bigger guys have bigger arms and legs and feet. Just that bigger is fatter, which im not. Im just. Um, bigger! lol

I had a pair of steel capped work boots that I had used for a few years . After another 3 years I took them into the bush to use them . I was surprised to find the soles fell off after 2 weeks . Built in degeneration , buy some new ones ....

Steel Blue, zip up, composite toe cap.....
Not cheap but long lasting and more importantly comfortable.

Composite are non metal its intead a carbon fibre reinforced made they are sewen in too and the cap can even be taken out too the way to do it is to sew it back out of the position and put back in too and is more tougher then steel and keeps "its shape" and is a tad lighter. Its also non metal so its airport safe and can go through security with out taking them off as they will not create a signal with the metal detector scanning door and wand too.

They in turn are able to be wore when gold detecting too. They do not react with any detector at all.

Can always do what my Pommie mate did ....... check out the op shops and get them there.
Olivers (from Ballarat ?) also get a good rap.
Cheers T.
