before getting into the professional tool scene 
i competed in distance running in triathlon   i've run marathons and even completed an ironman 
triathlon and i'm not exactly a small guy   so i know a thing or two about keeping your 
feet comfortable in uncomfortable conditions   running is one thing but what makes a 
comfortable work boot i'm going to show   you four things you have to pay attention to in 
order to get work boots with a comfortable fit   and some of these things have changed drastically 
over the years so if you're still wearing the same   model of boot you have been since 2010 
you might want to pay attention because   there's a good chance your feet aren't 
nearly as comfortable as they could be getting the right fit is the most important thing 
when you're looking for a comfortable work boot   the wrong fit can make the boot feel terrible by 
the end of the day too loose and you're sliding   around inside the shoe and getting blisters too 
tight and you're putting additional pressure on   different areas of your foot a proper fit should 
leave you with about a thumb's width between your   big toe and the end of your boot that allows 
your foot to swell naturally throughout the   day without being too loose so how do you get the 
right fit if you're getting a safety toe work boot   well the easiest way we've found is to go ahead 
and get your sizing based off of the soft toe   and then order the steel or composite toe that 
you'd like to go along with it we just find that   the sizing isn't that much different between them 
and if you're that close you should probably go   up a half a size width is a big deal too like 
a good running chute the middle should hug the   sides of your foot and the material should keep 
your foot from sliding side to side we'll save   the outsole material for another conversation 
what we want to focus on is the outsole style   traditional heeled work boots often suffer on hard 
ground like concrete or asphalt because it puts   all of your body weight on a smaller surface area 
wedge boots tend to be more comfortable thanks   to an outsole design that fully engages what 
you're walking on spreading out your weight more   the trade-off used to be that wedge boots had a 
very shallow tread that wasn't as good on soil   new designs combine the comfort of a wedge with 
the deeper tread of a heeled boot to give you the   best of both worlds before we move on let me just

sawsquatch the midsole is where we've probably   seen the most improvement in the last couple 
of years running shoes use a soft eva foam   that's super cushy but doesn't last as long work 
boots traditionally went with a more dense foam   even when they started using eva they lasted 
longer but didn't absorb nearly as much impact   the most comfortable work boots we've tested have 
shifted to a softer foam and there's a massive   improvement in how our feet feel at the end of the 
day you do need to replace them more often though   plan on getting about six months out of your 
everyday boots instead of a year trust us on   this one though your feet and legs will thank 
you most boot manufacturers offer a removable   cushioned insole they all work pretty well in 
their own right and you can always change them   out for a different one if you like in general i 
typically stay away from the memory foam insoles   they don't seem to last as long for me and they 
tend to be hotter making your feet sweat more as   an ironman triathlete those are the things i look
