A pair of boots may not be at the top of your priority list when welding accessories, but a good pair of welding boots is a must for serious or professional welders. This is especially true for aerial welding, where anything that falls can burn what you wear.
Instead of ruining good pairs of shoes (or worse, your feet!), Invest in a pair of sneakers that will protect you for years. Look for a pair in your workshop with a metatarsal protector to protect the toe and laces or a steel toe to protect against bumps or bumps.
Caterpillar Assault Review
This Caterpillar Assault Boot is a traditional ankle-length boot that feels particularly secure and portable.
Her ankles are supported by a padded collar at the top of the boots, which is more comfortable than rubbing. Metal laces at the front of each boot feel secure without worrying about slipping or loosening.
Rubber outsoles on the shoe prevent slippage and offer excellent traction even in the wettest conditions. The robust outer material is made of full-grain leather to ensure resistance to water and heat. The double stitching on the leather makes these boots durable for the toughest jobs.
Once you put them on, you’ll discover that these boots really do feel safe and supportive.
The ankles are carried by a padded collar on the top of each boot, which provides comfort instead of rubbing. The metal lacing at the front also makes these boots feel very secure, so you don’t have to worry about them coming loose or slipping.
These boots prevent slipping in other ways thanks to the rubber outsole, which offers excellent traction even when wet. If you wear these boots for a long time, your feet will remain safe and protected, as the metatarsal protection really protects against shock, heat, and minor chemical contaminants that you might come in contact with. The real leather material these boots are made of is also extremely protective and increases comfort and durability.
After wearing these boots all day in the shop, not only will you find your feet still comfortable, but the breathable lining and insoles will keep them cool and fresh, just the quality you’d expect from one. Top names like Caterpillar!

Some users have mentioned that grommets can be easily broken, but low maintenance can easily solve this problem.
