Caterpillar......at work and at play the best and last long time (the extra price is worth it, but you can get good deals in duty free)

I use Bates steal toe boots. Well insulated, important at ORD, and light weight.

I prefer the Magnum Phantom V-Lite. It is a tactical boot that has a Composite Toe and Shank, Ideal for metal detectors. I have found that it takes me approximately six hours to break in a pair. They are very light and flexible. I have used a version of the Magnum for more than eight years and keep returning to their great product.

As I said, they are very light. They are a tactical police boot that I find to be excellent out on the Line.

LoL. I like tennis shoes. They work just fine. I have some Nike Goretex ACGs for the ramp this winter, and they work great. No wet feet. They stay nice and warm with a single pair of white socks.

EDIT: Found a link.

I don't really know of many materials that will hold up to that nasty stuff for extended periods of time. I have gotten Skydrol on them in the past as well as fuel, de-ice fluid, engine oil, etc. No problems. I would advise against standing in a bucket of Skydrol for an hour though......they may not fair so well.

Normally problem with Skydrol is stepping on a puddle of spilt Skydrol on the Floor,affecting the soles of the shoes,making it initial slippery & then wearing out.

If you live in the oil patch, just find a place that sells work boots to the trade and say "I want the boots that the roughnecks buy." It worked for me at Garrett. Stuff that can stand up to drilling mud and crude oil are good for nearly anything.

Hi MEL, Buzz here. I prefer a local brand (made near the Portland Airport ) called Danner. They have a lot of different kinds, I've used the Biscayne for many years, it goes up over my ankle, and laces up. Yes, it's gore-tex lined to keep my feet dry - and it gets damp here in the Pacific Northwest.
A few months ago i bought a pair of pull-on Danner boots, it says "Striker Sergeant" on the lable inside. They're also gore tex lined.
Skydrol resistant? I've wiped a little oil, etc off of them. If there's a big slydrol leak i wear my big rubber rain boots.
Lightweight? yes, they are. A set of soles lasts about a year, then i get them re-soled. After 3 or 4 years the leather is kind of damaged enough so that i buy a new pair of shoes. We're up on ladders, down on our knees changing tires and brakes, in and out of the E+E bay or in the cargo pits or stab. compt. And there are innumerable trips up the Jetway stairs to the cockpit. So heavy boots are not a good thing.
Steel toes: i'm not in favor of them. When i was working in Overhaul, doing sheet metal repair in the cargo pits we were on our knees most of the night, the steel toe section digs into the top of my foot - painful after a while.
Oh yes, i wear wool socks too, even in the summer. I'm fond of a brand called "Smart Wool" they're quite comfortable, it tends to be damp here all year long.
g'nite

Interesting tips on your shoe type Buzz.[Fantastic start line as usual Smile]
You are right about the Steel tip problem & yes Light shoes are neded for Mx personnell.

Do you have a model no for your Biscayne type used & where do you resole them.
