If you are really tied to a strict budget and you need something durable and comfortable that will get you through the job without any real hassles, the CONDOR Idaho Steel Toe is the ideal work boot that you could invest in.
The boot is made from 100% genuine leather and features a steel toe that is specifically designed for comfort and long-term protection of your feet. The outer sole will bind directly to the upper part of the boot without the use of any glue that could come loose and hinder the durability of the overall boot.
While PU might not be the best inner sole, it is really helpful and this has been included on the inside of the boot. The main benefit is the fact that it can be removed and this can be replaced with an EVA sole that should offer you a little more. Unfortunately, the boot does lack some ventilation and this does seem to be one of the only issues.
In terms of the price, you have certainly found a bargain and the shoe is one of the most affordable boots that we have on the list. It might not have all the high-end features one would expect, but it still does offer some durability and comfort for you to use at work. We highly recommend this as a replacement shoe.
