yep thats what i got busted wearing, black nb's i also dropped the redbacks for the same reasons, and they didnt last. so i;ve been told i cant wear the shoes that have saved my feet and back. but they will reimburse me for the purchase so i'm looking for somerthing similar possibly something in the "responder/tactical" category that will be for more than just work, i have a pair on 8" danners that are fulltime winter wear, but they are too hot for summer

I work in a bus shop.

Timberland Pro's are the ONLY way to go.

They handle grease/oil/grease without complaining and wear nicely.

My feet can't take sneakers on hard concrete floors.

*if* you can find usa red wings that breathe then buy them.

My last red wing boot buying effort was full of chicom fail.

13EE feet here.

Basically, any boot is going to be hotter than a shoe. It's for your safety. There are a lot of other jobs where the employees are required to wear boots with a safety toe and it is 110 degrees or hotter in the work environment.
