Combat boots

Work boots. While they aren’t the height of fashion, in many ways they’re more valuable than any of the shoes you’ll see making their way down the runway. Though they luckily aren’t quite as expensive as “designer” footwear, heavy duty work boots also aren’t the cheapest shoes on the market, with the average employee spending about $70 on foot protection per year. A reluctance to spend on safety boots is one of the reasons why some employees seek out “cheap” versions that aren’t really protective boots at all.
