And what do the guys who wear size 14, 15 or 16 (like myself) get? So far the only thing that has worked for me are football cleats. Steel toe boots are too hot and too heavy and I only use them for construction/demolition.

Looks like a boot that might work well in the pressure washing industry.I want..........no need a light weight boot that will keep my feet dry since I'm diabetic and when my feet get wet and stay wet I end up with trench foot,but at $100 I'm not going to be the guinea pig for my peers.
