If there's one job where our boots and shoes are really tested day in, day out, in all kinds of weather, and every situation, it's construction. Stone Masons, Carpenters, Scaffolders, Foundation Layers are just some of the many craftsmen we're proud to have in our shoes. The working materials alone (sand, stone, steel, concrete powder and grit) will destroy a pair of substandard shoes within a few weeks. walking along wet scaffolding or edging along girders in strong winds isn't for people with a weak stomach. Or those wearing weak shoes.
