I wear steel cap lace up work boots. Olivers at the moment, because I get them for free from the company I work for. I had a low side crash a few years back, they saved my toes being ground down to bloody stumps.

Doc Martens 1460 in brown.

Doc Martens are on my list to buy soon.

I currently wear some Walmart brand composite toe shoes, Timberland Pro steel toe boots and sometimes my Chuck Taylor's and still occasionally my Hi-Tec Altitude IV hiking boots. The wife has bought me some black and orange composite toe Harley shoes for Christmas.
