It's normal to hold on to your work boots for as long as possible. As a Journeyman Toolmaker, Chris did the same thing.
After all, they're quite an investment. But, how do you know when it's time for new boots?
Here's a Quick Checklist:
#1 Wear & Tear
If you notice the protective part of your work boots has started to show through, don't think twice. It's time for a change. Don’t take a chance at foreign materials like metal chips getting in and injuring your foot. Remember this: safety first!
#2 Separation of the seams
If you notice a visible separation in the seams of your boots, it's time to plan for new boots. You can visit our website to check out some new options.
#3 Worn on the outsole of the shoe
Can you see tread on the outsole of your shoe? If not, they are no longer slip-resistant. It’s just like your car tires; they will be more likely to slip in oily conditions, inclement weather or on uneven terrain.
Has your waterproofing failed? Are your feet wet every time it rains? If so, it's time to replace them.
If you see any of these signs, stop by and see one our team members. We'll help you find your next pair!
