Have you ever fallen off your own ship with our boots on? I have.
Have you ever jumped on a sinking boat, with a pair of steel toed boots lashed to your feet? Me too. There is no feeling more helpless. No wait, yes there is.
Have you ever had to bob back and forth between an elegant dinner party on Persian rugs and dirty engine room on a tramp steamer?
Been invited to enjoy an indulgent, far eastern style pants off massage in a hurry?
All of the se situations require a set of sturdy work boots that can be slipped on easily, and more importantly, slipped off under duress.
Blundstone Style 500 fit the bill. There is probably something better, and I don’t like the sole, as at least on of the 10 pair I have gone through fell apart. And for the price, they don’t last that long.
