Now the weather is getting wetter. What trainers / boots do you wear that actually keep your feet dry. At the moment I wear cheap trainers and my feet are soaking pretty much at the start of my day then have to work all day with soggy feet :(. Not the end of the world but would prefer dry feet and socks whilst I work.any recommendations guys. Thanks

Rigger boots. Although a bit cumbersome for flying up and down a ladder, great if your w.f.p, I.m.o :)

Have a pair of clarks gor-tex leather walking boots for the cold, they are fairly light but decided to get a pair of gor-tex trainers so will mix and match depending on how cold it is either way I should have dry feet. I get miserable fast if my feet are either cold or wet!

I use Goretex shoes mainly.

And when it get below 0°C My choice Is Winter Boots 2 size bigger than normal, just for The space to wear thick wool socks.

I've been wearing Redback Dealer boots for the past three years now. Fantastic hardwearing boots that are really comfortable, the first pair lasted nearly two years before giving me back ache (heavy on the outside of my heel). As for being warm/waterproof, I bought them in spring and just kept wearing them thinking I'll change into my walking boots when my feet get wet/cold. That never happened, I used Zamberlan Hydrobloc cream to water proof which is excellent.

The leather is 2.4mm unlined and breathes well. I wear good wool socks and the combination of thick midsoles of the boot and a bit of space for air to move around inside the boot they have been warm down to -3. Really surprised.

I'd always gone for Gortex/membrane footwear when in the army but my feet were always freezing. They're not that cheap, but you're on you feet all day (that's how I justified it[emoji6]) Hope this helps. I got them from:

Redback Boots | Official UK distributors for Redback Boots

I'd be tripping over everything with two sizes bigger, already got big feet! but I can see the benefit of extra Wolley socks. I'm a fan of 100% wool, the shops have all these posh winter work socks insulated with padded heal but I've not found any that performs better than wool.
