Best Boots For A Tile Guy


Every year I go through a good pair of boots, no because I'm wearing out the soles but because my toes end up poking through the leather. I have tried rubber toe covers that you have to glue on. Even with 3 different types of glue, they fall off in about a months time. Recently I have been waring "Georgia Boots"... (gave up on the Sears Die Hards many years ago). They are great boots Extremely comfortable, But they have soft leather and that means I get a hole in the toes in about 3 months time. What does all the tile setter out there use for boots??

Re: Best Boots For A Tile Guy


I really like the Timberland Pro boots.

I use the Redwing toe protectors, but you're right, the glue is worthless. On my latest pair of boots I used Gorilla Glue super glue and glued the protectors on the brand news boots, and let them sit overnight. I didn't bother with the sandpaper. It's been a couple of months now and they are still on.

For me, I'm lucky if I get a year out of a pair of work boots.

The main search function is going through a bit of growing pains right now.

You can always do this. Go to the main Ceramic & Stone Tile section. Search within that section. Chances are, we have discussed almost any subject previously.
