i've looked at Lowa Z85's havent purchased yet cause the need hasnt outweighed my want yet ... that and my next pair of boots will be from the boot campaign. I ran across a great review of the lowa's here: http://loadoutroom.c...s-gtx-reviewed/ there are also a lot of other good reviews on other boots.
Those look like a great pair of boots. Unfortunately it is a bit out of my price range. I can only afford 100-200$ max for the boots I pick.
Thanks for the suggestion though. Maybe if I have some extra money at some point.
Why is safety toe a requirement
Because I am a extremely clumsy. I drop things on my feet every day. Along with walk into things. For the time I had the composite toe blackhawks it was almost like I was not a moron for a whole 2 years. Not to mention great to have that hard piece to kick with in a fight. It really makes a difference.
If it was not for the safety toe on my blackhawks I would have completely broken all of my toes on one of my feet. Although its doubtful someone will drop a 1000 pound display case on my foot again. Still nice to have.
Also it needs to be a composite toe vs any other kind because I fly a lot. Composite is the only material that has no issue gong through security.
I really wish someone still carried those blackhawks in a size 14.
