Being the boss has it's perks But my guys can wear these as well. If we installed systems, and dug all day everyday, we'd wear something appropriate. Since we only service/maintain/repair systems, it's not an issue. Our feet get wet more than we do digging. No jeans, and quick drying shorts as soon as it warms up. The right tool/clothing for the job.

I'd wear these when it's warm/hot to do service work.



What kind of price range are they?

I disagree, there are times during service that you need boots. I would have to reschedule so I could come back with the proper footwear.

I've tried waders for lake pumps and they don't work. You need a wet suit.

We mostly do service too. We do have a union job install going on.....long pants, safety glasses and hard hats. Tough when it's hot.

My boss can wear whatever he want's....I'm not the boss of him.

You'll feel like Superman in a pair of high top Rocky Bear Claws.

Why do you feel it's that difficult to dig in these? I've done it for years. Don't see how there is a problem. Bring a second pair of boots with you if you felt it was necessary. If I'm going to be doing hours of digging, I will wear boots. But if I am going to be doing hours of digging, I know it ahead of time. Or I am rescheduling, but not due to not having the right footwear.

Never dug in them except helping my wife on weekends. I prefer dry, warm boots when I'm working
