    i haven't tried them myself but my brother in law raves about them and he's a diabetic and partly paralyzed on one side after a stroke so he is very careful about what he can wear on his feet and he says they are the best most stable and comfortable boots he has ever worn and won't buy anything else
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    It happened to me had the mower on a high setting went to change the catcher then WACK. Looked down to expect to see toes wriggling on the ground as i had non steelcapps on, But it just shredded the top of my boot and gave me a toe ache. Steelies from then on...

    Hi guys

    My first post.

    Boots are something i feel very strongly about.

    im a MACK boot man myself. Once my 4wd fell off the jack and landed on my steel cap when i was out bush.
    i was stuck untill i could move my foot out of the boot but leave the boot under the car.

    i reckon they saved my life as i would have been pinned there in the cold.



    i always buy Macks! there built like there trucks !

    Welcome to the forum mate! Great to here you still got all your toes! I was turning around on a slope once and lifted the rear end of the mower to make it around and dropped it on my foot (going). I reckon if they save your toes once they are a good pair of boots! I have always worn blundstones but this last pair collapsed in the heal and gave me a nasty blister one day so might try something else next time.
