You know, that's really smart. I almost always brew barefoot. That's stupid. I should have some decent footware when messing around with boiling liquids, heavy items, etc. Brewing boots is a great idea!

I know what you mean.My prior brewing footwear during the warm months was flip flops!!!The steel toe may be overkill but who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth!

I picked up a great pair of boots at Wal Mart a few years ago. Thick black leather, steel toe and shank, oil resistant sole, $25. They've worn like iron and are the most comfortable shoes I own. I beat the crap out of them- kicking fires, moving hot propane burners, spilling wort, etc. and they just keep going. I have no idea what the brand name is though.

It only takes one time of BOILING HOT WORT to hit the top of your foot and you remember to brew in shoes.
