I wear the pro range for actual work. Lasted over a year which is pretty good for a pair of safety boots. Was looking at the Wtaps collab but not sure it's worth the extra cash.

Maybe look for a Stussy collab if you want something a little different.

These are quite handsome actually.

Office have the primaloft waterproof version for £125, 10% code probably works as well.

Got a pair today, half a size down was fine. Each one weighs about 0.9kg so really not that heavy.

What do you do mate? Looking for a new pair of boots atm, not sure timbs, meindl, haix will hold up with what I do on a daily but fed up with boots not lasting..

I am a landscape gardener, mostly stone work though so the boots get pretty beat up.

The actual steel caps rubbed through the suede pretty quick
So I was a bit dubious. But other than that they have been really solid. Comfy from the get go too.

Yuks are a great shoe - your picture however looks like your part shop dummy.

He’s out of his depth. If they’re not chunky clog trainers, he has a right mare.

I like Yuketen. Quality of the leather and construction is great.

That picture isn't helping though - maybe it's the angle, looks like one Swede would be practised with using.

Can someone recommend me some boots like these nearer £150 than £300? Not a fan of redwing Moc Toes.
