My daily routine is pretty sedentary, my body is posed no great threats from falling rocks, nor looming metal wheeled forklifts, indeed the level of danger my feet are exposed to is such that I often am barefoot underneath my desk. This is in direct contrast to those in more rugged professions than I. Safety Shoes Workwear There are people out there who work up a sweat whilst working, who have callouses on their hands and whose feet are in mortal danger every time they pull on their work shoes. There are naturally grades of danger that your feet can be exposed to and in choosing safety footwear this needs to be taken into account. If you are, for example, what is known as in the trade as slightly endangered you may be able to get away with a trainer with a composite ( non metal ) toecap. This sort of safety shoe will not hamper your movements at all, feeling much the same as a normal shoe, whilst affording good protection for the feet at work. Such safety shoes may also be useful in areas where it is important to negate the possibility of an electrostatic discharge (ESD) from footwear; shoes are also measured in terms of heat resistance and joules ( pressure they can withstand). Moving upwards with regards to shoe/ workboot safety specifications we can see some wonderfully rugged safety boots from some well known manufacturers such as Timberland, DeWalt, CAT, JCB and DrMartens amongst others. For example Timberland Safety Boots have a wealth of additional safety features in their workwear to protect even the most threatened feet. They come with a steel plate in the sole so that standing on a nail is more likely to drive it further into a plank than through your foot; they are ergonomically designed to support the foot, keep it dry, whilst delivering maximum protection from knocks or spillage. It is always reassuring to know that your shoes are oil and acid resistant, that flaming napalm could be poured over them with no deleterious effect to your feet, nailguns fired accidentally would bounce off your shoes... Moving back to the matter in question, if you work in the construction industry or in any arena where heavy or dangerous materials are around, it is vital that you get adequate protection for your feet, be it pull on safety boots , shoes, trainers or safety wellingtons. There is a huge range of Safety Footwear, Boots, Trainers, Shoes and Rigger Boots online. So have a look and protect your feet.

My first visit to Howth, Ireland was not planned. I had just arrived in Ireland the evening before from London. I got on the DART train and headed for a day in the city center. I intended to browse a few museums and have lunch. My plans changed when I picked a seat next to a friendly woman named Mary. I greeted my seat-mate on the train and we started a conversation. When I told Mary about my plans for the day she had a definite opinion. She said, "Oh, no. Hiking Boots Ireland What you need after your trip to London is a day outside in the fresh air! Why don't you come for a hike?" I thought about Mary's suggestion for a minute, knew that she was right, and checked my footwear. Since I was wearing sturdy boots, I said, "Sure; that sounds great!" I stayed on the train and went north to Howth. Mary and I spent the day hiking along the beautiful Irish coastline and taking in the wonderful fresh air. Howth (which rhymes with "both") is a scenic fishing village at the end of a long peninsula north of Dublin. In the early 1800s it was the port for the sea crossing to Wales. The port location has changed to Dun Laoghaire, south of Dublin, but Howth remains as a quaint and gorgeous spot for a day trip or even a base for your travels in Dublin. You can drive to and from Dublin city center on Howth Road for 10 miles (16 km), but since summer traffic is heavy, the DART is the best way to go between the two places. You may want to stop in at the National Transport Museum, which is a short walk from Howth's DART station. The unusual vehicles include a restored open-topped tram and a horse-drawn bakery van. The Howth Castle Gardens are next door to the Transport Museum and are accessible from the Deer Park Hotel. The castle, built in 1654, is not open to the public, but you can see the ruins of a tall 16th century castle and a Neolithic dolmen. When you continue east toward the harbor, you will pass some shops and restaurants. To the north is Ireland's Eye, an island that is the site of a 6th century monastery and a Martello tower. Martello towers were built in the early 1800s to defend the coast from French invasion. If the weather is calm, you can hire a boat ride over to the island from the Harbor. The highlight of my trips to Howth has been the coastline hike that Mary introduced me to. I had a glorious day on my first visit and later took my children back for the same hike. You can ask a local where the coastline path is. It's a little hard to locate, although my children and I just kept walking on the streets heading east until we ended up on the path. You can also get to the path by asking directions when you get off the DART. You will have stunning views from the cliffs as you walk east and then south along the coast. On a clear day you can see the Mourne Mountains and the Wicklow Mountains. The largest seabird colony on Ireland's east coast is in Howth. Thousands of birds, including fulmars, kittiwakes and guillemots, nest on the cliffs you will hike along. Eventually, you will see the Baily Lighthouse and Dublin in the distance to the south. There is a detour off the path up a long flight of steps to the lookout at the Summit. The path continues or cuts back to town. When you get back to Howth, you will want to eat dinner at one of the local spots or get some fish and chips to eat as you sit by the harbor.
