I need new boots but as I'm a new apprentice I'm wondering on which ones to buy I know I want them waterproof, lightweight and most importantly suitable for the job such as there not gonna get crushed easy or electrocute me as I know rubber is a good insolator but I also know it could electrocute me if the current is high enough. Any advice or suggestions are welcome. THANK YOU.

Buy a pair of gumboots/galoshes with steel toe that come up to your calf for wet and muddy work and a pair of regular leather boots with steel toe for other stuff, my Irish workmate loves the DeWalt boots you can get over there. You do not want waterproof boots unless you want to spring for a gore tex bootie since it allows them to breath
