I recently entered a competition on Facebook to win a pair of Dickies Liberty safety shoes and luckily, I won!
I work with some heavy equipment such as servers, interactive touch panels and power tools, so having protected toecaps is a must. The downside with most steel toe capped boots, in 25 degree heat they are horrible and leave you with smelly, sweaty feet. Yuk!!! They are also very heavy to wear. This is where these Dickies shoes come into their element. They have a composite toe-cap which is much lighter than a steel toe cap. They have a non-metallic anti-penetration midsole for those accidents at work. They have anti-static & ESD protection which is perfect in my role and they come with an anti-scuff toe. The materiel is very breathable and they are also fuel & oil resistant.
I have been wearing them for the last three days and highly recommend them. My feet are much cooler and less tired, but still protected thanks to the many features of the shoes. To quote Paulo Nutini: Hey, I put some new shoes on and suddenly everything is right!
