The purpose of boots is to protect your feet and if they need to be steel-capped or leather boots otherwise they won’t protect them very well. You may not enjoy wearing massive slabs of steel on your feet but you’ll be thankful in case of an accident as they may save you from losing a foot.
Choosing the right boots for welding that cover well will help to protect you. The long boot is better as short boots can be designed well to keep your feet safe, but ankles are a prime target for injury in the workshop to make sure you pick the right height.
The right protective footwear should also withstand the dangers of slippery surfaces, heat, live electricity, and chemical spills. Your workplace may not have these hazards, but many welding facilities do, and you never know what you may need protection from one day so it's very important to pick the right kind of protective boots. Please also keep in mind that wearing protective gear such as welding jackets and welding helmets is a must at all times during welding.
Different Styles of Welding Boots
Like everything these days, there is also a wide range of boot styles. This is more a matter of personal preference than necessity, but it can be significant in determining the right choice.
There is a couple of common choices like laced welding boots which are a good choice because they’re easy to slip into when the laces are loose, and you can make them much tighter than slip-on boots. But this style does take longer to tighten, and you can damage laces much faster due to the rough conditions in the workshop.
Second choice and more common is slip-on boots and this style is just as durable and protective as laced boots. This style doesn't need additional laces bought for them and is a quick option to slip on when you’re in a rush. This style doesn't give as much support as laced boots do, but high-quality ones can still be very secure on your feet.
Make sure you always select the right size for safety boots as this gets more challenging to determine when you’re buying boots online so try to stick to the familiar brand as this can be a good option and fit much better. Most boots are accurate to their size, so you can order the size you normally wear and they should fit ok. Always read the reviews of sizing first as there are some welding boots that are a slightly bigger or smaller size than others - it is pretty much the same as with welding gloves.
