Comfortable Gumboots/inserts/options for Larger Sore Feet
Just wondering if anyone has found some options for workers with larger/wider feet who have foot pain.
We have in the past always used Blundstone for larger sizes and wide fitting option. Haven't had any need to use them recently.
Hey Genevieve, how large/wide do you require? Blundstone's largest size in gumboots is a 13UK/14US.
The largest safety workboots I know of available from NZ distributors is size 16UK/17US, although some brands offer a wider fit than others. Gumboots are available in 15UK/16US.
Happy to offer some suggestions if you PM me, probably against forum guidelines for me to list them here...?
Hi Genevieve, I had the same problem last year with trying to find safety gumboots that suited our Manufacturing guys feet. It certainly wasn't one size fits all. We tried on a LOT of different brands, sizes, shapes etc and FINALLY found some that were comfortable. We eventually went for a Redband gumboot and a Blundstone. But it did take a while to find ones that suited their feet. Thankfully I only had two people to purchase for. Good luck.
