In my case, I don't wear the old work boots I cycle to work in at work. I have a decent pair waiting under my desk to change into.I wouldn’t fancy my work boots on bike. Agree it’s not necessary for all the gear and great to just grab and go but I prefer a lighter shoe.
I wear them for the same reasons when buggering about on a MTB. My most recent work boots get worn at work. The old shite pairs that have previously been condemned because the toecaps are all scuffed and are in a right state, are still perfectly functional for riding a bike, doing car repairs, or general outdoor household jobs in. By the time they start to fall apart, I'll have yet another scuffed up working pair ready to replace them with. Nothing I own ever gets binned until it's useful life has been completely exhausted.The main advantages with old workboots are the durability, resistance to water and the room inside them for an extra pair of socks on a cold day.
My ones are work supplied as well. I am issued with a few pairs per year up to a certain value. I can have whatever I choose so long as it's rated as a safety boot.I wear them for the same reasons when buggering about on a MTB. My most recent work boots get worn at work.
A fair question.Steel toecap boots, what kind of a social worker are you?
