Landscaping Work Boots: How to Find the Perfect Pair

When you’re in a tough, physical, outdoor industry like landscaping, having a great pair of boots is much more than a work essential—it’s something that can make or break your day. If you can trust your boots to stand up to wet weather, cold temperatures, machinery hazards and all the wear and tear you throw at them, you know you can focus on the work instead of your feet. If your landscaping business operates year round, no matter the weather, make sure your boots have these 5 features:

Outsole Grip

Boots with a rugged outsole grip are a safety essential for almost any physical outdoor job. They’ll help prevent potentially devastating slip-and-fall accidents in wet and icy conditions. Plus, the better traction they provide will be a big help on uphill climbs and on soggy terrain.

Waterproofing

Working with wet feet all day isn’t just miserable, it’s dangerous. You don’t have time to change your boots throughout the day as they get wet. That means that you need boots with waterproofing you can rely on.

Insulation

If you are out doing work year-round, you need a pair of boots for the winter months. Boots without insulation won’t keep you warm if you are spending 8 – 12 hours out in the cold each day. Add a pair of thermal socks for even more warmth.

Durable Construction

A great pair of boots is a professional investment, so, naturally, you want the most bang for your buck. Choose a pair designed to take a beating and meant to be used in tough work conditions.

Comfort Features

In the landscaping business, you’re likely on your feet for hours at a time, working hard and moving around a lot. And if your feet are uncomfortable, that will take away your focus. Choose a pair with added support, moisture control and injury-prevention features.
