I recently got Dr. Martins from having Swats for the better part of 3 years.
Never have I been so disappointed in the quality or life span of a boot before I got Swats.

Current Dr. Martins aren't Zip up which is the only thing I don't like about them but otherwise they're super.

I have steel Blue response boots, got to say they have been better than magnums and more comfortable. Always buy boots to at least cover your ankle not only for support but protection. Added bonus with zip up sides and laces too  Smiley

Work boots are very essential for you because you need to put on them to job. A pair of good work boots can deliver great relaxation and security to legs, so it is very important to choose a good pair of work boots for you.

This thread has been dead for a while but this is a topic dear to my heart. 

Been in security for 12 years and have worn a variety of brand shoes (Magnum/SWAT/etc) and I have to say that my current pair are by far the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned aside from joggers. 

Cost me $200 and a trip from Newcastle to Canberra to see Legear.  Check out legears website if you need ANY security gear.

Anyway, I have now got a pair of Converse Rapids

Best.boot.ever.

SWAT do make quality boots. Will be looking at getting a pair soon.


So ausguard did you end up getting those SWAT boot? any impressions?

I've worn Dr. Martins boots for years and enjoy their comfort (once adequately broken in) and quality/longevity, in recent years I've opted for a steel cap boot made by Blacksmith, the aggressive sole pattern is great for alternating terrain and subtle enough for more urban environments, at half the price of my old Doc's they seemed like an okay investment and I'm on my second pair, I believe the earlier versions of this boot had a Kevlar toe...


I've recently become a owner of S.W.A.T Boots and oh lord I have nothing but GREAT things to say about them.
In short they have to be the most comfortable boots you'll EVEN ware once you've broken them in.

Also in the range of safety toe you can get both steal cap and Plastic / Kevlar which are Airport friendly which was a set I went with.

I had my boots on last week for 24 hours straight and when I did take my boots off my feet weren't even bothering me.
I don't know of any other Brand or type of Boot one can have on their feet for 24 hours with Zero issues.

Im with K9 on this one. I have a pair of magnum combat boots and they work great. Also another pair i often use are a German Boot from the company Meindel. These are great comfy boot.
Let us know which boot you decide on, and maybe do a short review.

I've worn Taipans for 10 years now and have only been through 3 pairs in that time. I've never had any issues with sore feet or slip problems

i use magnum high tec's and find them great for clubs, and out in field. very comfortable to wear and walk around on ur feet for those long shifts. i find them good in the rain on slippery grounds of all sorts iv never had a problem with them im on my second pair in 3 years  Smiley so they lasted a a fair bit compared to the punishment iv put them through. in saying that i looked after them well at the same time.

Try Olivers,Blundestone,TBoots,Redback,
The only problem is comfort vs price.
Pay for what you get.

G'day,

I was after some suggestions on a good pair of slip resistant / non slip work boots to wear in the pub / club environment.

The main factor I am looking for is slip resistant, the pair of Hush Puppies I have are great for walking around a carpeted office but fail dismally in the grip department!

Cheers,
