    I purchased some saftey boots for my electrical course, I have worn them like 4 times, how come It hurts on the top side of my feet by my toe? Its a size 6, but it hurts by the side, can someone please give me some advice? I have read somewhere that all safety boots are the similar width, you can't get wide ones. My toes also touch the front part of the boots.

    Crap, that sentence was a mistake. Are all safety boots the same width?
     
  7. Try a size 7?

    Shoes do like vary, I am like size 11 normally? Yet when it comes to work shoes I'm like size 9?

    I'm like, why don't these fit??

    The best thing to do is to like try different sizes on before you like buy them?

    They will like, take like a while to get like used to them like.

    I agree with you, my trainers are size 7.5, I think 7 will fit me perfectly, I done a mistake I thought it was too big for me so I got a size 6. Now my toes literally touch the end of the boots and it hurts.

  13. I spend a bit on boots and buy non metal boots.

    There's a big difference in comfort the more you spend the better the boot.

    I disagree with that. I've always been supplied with safety boots throughout my career, and I always got wide fitting boots. But, the comfiest were the £20 jobs from screwfix. IMHO>
