The traditional looking Landmaster boot

Dickies Safety Landmaster £57

Build 4

Made of 100 per cent polyurethane with steel plated midsole and composite toe cap manufactured to ENISO 20345:2004/A1 2007 S5.
Sizes 6-12 in matt green.

Features 5

Slip-proof, waterproof and resistant to manure, oils, diesel and petrol. Rear kick off spur. Thermal insulation and inserts included (5mm thick), with moisture absorbing properties. Lightweight.

Performance 4

Unlike some of the others the upper remained fairly rigid making them easier to pull on. Snug ankle fitting made them easy to walk in and the additional insoles have a rubber base so don’t slip within the boot. Easy to kick off.

Value 4

Traditional looking with excellent features and very comfortable
