    Can anyone recommend any lightweight safety shoes or boots. I have a pair of Scruffs Steel Toe Cap Boots for the workshop at work. But with the arthritis in my knee I’m finding them a bit on the heavy side. I’ve seen some lightweight ones with composite caps, how do they measure up safety wise ? Worse case scenario would be 22mm Low Carbon Steel or a set of Stillson’s being dropped on them.

    I wear timberland split rock pros.
    Very light weight.
    Not the best for building sites as the leather is quite soft but for a workshop they will be great.

    I have some Uvex trainers and they are wonderfully comfy and very light. Sometimes I accidentally wear them home!
