    Default Concrete Boots

    What are you concrete guys wearing for over-boots when you are working in the mud? I wore my favorite pair out. They were bright yellow and the dried concrete just fell off with a light kick. I was planning on getting a pair made by LaCrosse but they quit making them. All they offer now is black rubber.

    I interpreted your title quite differently and thought this would be a discussion about disposing of fellow Mafiosi or something like that.

    In the ten years I did concrete work I never wore over boots just some good old fashioned rubber boots. Finally found a brand called Mucks. They're about $100 a pair and concrete doesnt exactly just "fall off" but it comes off well enough. The best part is they're the most comfortable pair of boots I own. A pour job now is like walking on pillows they're so soft. :-)7

    Ha, that never crossed my mind.

    The boots I'm thinking of are a real shinny yellow and very smooth to the touch. The ones I have seen in the stores this spring do not fit over my boots or even my tennis shoes. If I wanted to give up the foot support I could get a pair of $6 deck shoes that would work in them.

    I would recommend the Tingley 1500 17" boot. Tough and light-weight.

    I've been wearing them for 30+ years.

    And they are much lighter than concrete boots.

    No, we call those cement shoes.

    Yes, you are correct. The concrete boots reference certainly made me think of it though.

    Tractor Supply store still lists yellow over boots (#648784499) for about $25. Also have muck boots but cost much more. I use the yellow boots when working with concrete. They are fairly cheap and wash off if you get to it before it dries. I can't see paying a lot of $ for concrete boots.

    You can also get these yellow over boots from a fire equipment dealer. They are used as hazmat over boots. We use and they are comfortable also.
