This post highlights our best rigger boots and some specifications that make them great. 

What are rigger boots? 

Rigger boots were and still are, designed to offer manual workers increased safety through one of their most important features, anti-slip. 

However, this type of workwear boot has increased in popularity over the years due to their practicality, durability, and the high levels of comfort they offer the wearer. 

Today rigger boots are resistant to cuts, compressions, and impact, these boots offer safety and sturdiness to workers on construction sites, oil rigs, factories, warehouses, farming, and more – never are feet more protected than when snug inside a rigger boot. 

Think of rigger boots like protective waterproof boots that have a fur lining to keep feet warm; they are mainly found as a slip-on in style (making them easy to pull on and off), they have a steel cap toe to protect feet further, and a midsole for added foot protection. 

Initially designed for those working offshore on the oil rigs, these boots are practical, stylish, safety focused, protective footwear. 

Choosing the right rigger for you comes down to your requirements, your job role, and the level of comfort you need/want.
