    I have rheumatoid arthritis. My joints (especially hands, feet, and knees) are anywhere from totally trashed to semi-functional depending on the day. I struggled with footwear for awhile. The last year and change I have settled on Boggs seamless rubber boots. They have composite toe, because I enjoy the safety feeling of it. They're super comfy, and go halfway up my calf. The main material is neoprene, with a rubber waterpoof layer from the bottom to just above the ankle. Good tread on them gives me some cushion from the concrete, as well as traction when the floors get slick sometimes. This is my first pair, but I can't really see myself using another brand unless these fail in some weird way.

    Has anybody tried the Crocs AllCast Rain Boots? I wear Carolina boots, now, but they seem to be wet after the second day of each week.

    looks interesting. Thanks for the site. I liked a pair. They are on the expensive end but they seem worth it

(as mentioned previously, wear good socks! worth the extra prices, but annoying as hell when your boots eat them). i've suspected they were leaking for a while and today, as i sit here w/ soaking wet socks, i can confirm this.

    sad...they used to be great. now i am definitely looking elsewhere (muckboots, baffins, guardians, servus)

    oh yeah...the thing that really pisses me off is they are now made in china (according to the company to save costs) but they still are the same price (if not higher) to us. BS in my book.
    What are your sock recommendations?

    "Gumleaf USA offers incredibly comfortable and well-made boots: 85% natural rubber, air-filled soft rubber chambers under the heel and forefoot, handmade in Europe. They have an aggresive, non-slip tread also. What they do not have is a steel shank or so if you don't require either, give our boots a try. You won't find a more comfortable, better made boot on the planet."

    I ordered mine from the first production run. I've tried pretty much every other brand and never had anything last longer than 9 months, with most leaking long before that. I've had my Brew Boots for just short of a year, and the sole on one has just started to separate from the body, but they STILL don't leak!
    They are also comparably very lightweight, the shock absorption is excellent, and they don't stink after a year of wearing every day. I've recommended them to all my brewer friends, I really hope this company sells enough to stick around, because I'll not be buying anything else.

    I'm a big believer in Red Wings for everything from shoes, to sandals, to boots. I've had my current pair of boots for 5 months, and aside from a little discoloration (slight darkening where they regularly get wet with chemicals), they are in near-brand-new condition.

    Waterproof 6 inch boot with electrical hazard and non-metallic safety toe protection ideal for almost any light manufacturing, transportation or general utility job. Shop Now At Red Wing Shoes.


    They aren't cheap, but they are worth it. They have excellent support, are fully water- and chemical-proof, heat resistant (and don't get hot even in the worst of the summer), slip resistant, and are safe around electricity (non-steel toe, but they are composite, which should handle anything in a brewhouse that doesn't use a forklift).

    I use them and they are pretty good on sizing. I usually where a size 12 shoe and use a 12 with inserts and they fit well. A little loose without inserts but i wouldnt recommend going smaller. They may fit well a size down but youre way better off with the added comfort of inserts.

    Hey everyone. Been wearing these boots for just under three years and they have finally sprung a leak. Last brewery I worked for bought them for me but I can't for the life of me remember the brand. Don't have any obvious brand markings on them so I thought I would see if any of you have any idea what brand they are. Would love to get a replacement pair.

    The above was a quote from beer_gorilla in his post #49. It just reinforces what I just posted in #57 and #58 regarding the quality of boots available in the US today. Gumleaf boots, on the other hand, are handmade in Europe. You won't find a better made boot. 85% natural rubber. Double reinforced seams. Air cushioned heels and forefoot, etc. If you work in a part of the brewery that requires steel toes or shanks, this isn't your boot but if you want comfort and durability, this is your new brand. See a SPECIAL OFFER I'm about to post under "Classifieds - New Product Opportunities". Men's retailer Sims used to say, "An educated consumer is our best customer." I'll take that a step further: "An educated brewmaster will be my best Gumleaf referral." Rather than my making claims about Gumleaf boots, I'm offering a financial incentive to put Gumleaf boots on the first 25 orders using the special discount code on the Classifieds page. I'll let the quality and comfort speak for themselves. Need new boots? Now would be a great time to buy Gumleaf.
    I have submitted this question multiple times on other sites without an answer, maybe you can tell me here... I wear a 9EEEE and have a VERY hard time finding boots to fit. Do you have something that will fit me without being sloppy in length?
