The Five Best Farming Boots for Men

Farming is a tough job that requires the right set of tools, and a pair of high-quality farming boots is one of those crucial pieces. 

Hollands has had its roots firmly in the Cheshire farming community for many generations now, so we like to think that we know a bit about decent farm boots! 

Boots made for farming must provide protection and support while ensuring the wearer's comfort and productivity. The safety of the wearer's feet should always be a top priority.

Our fantastic collection of farming boots and work boots has a range of different styles and designs from top quality brands, but we're going to showcase a few of our best options for you here. 


What are Farming Boots?

Farming boots are a type of footwear that has been created for use in agricultural environments, usually made with durable materials and construction to withstand the elements on a farm.

These boots play an essential role in keeping farmers’ feet protected, comfortable, and safe while working. Careful consideration of design, materials, and construction ensure that farmers can choose the best boots for their specific needs.


Types of Farming Boots

There are several types of boots that are ideal for farming activities.

The most common ones are:

  • Waterproof boots (or water-resistant) i.e. dealer boots 
  • Wellington boots
  • Steel toe/composite toe work boots.

Different jobs on the farm might require different boots, so it's important to wear the right shoes for the task in hand. 

Wellies are great to help you avoid wet feet during mucky, messy work, whilst day-to-day tasks suit a decent pair of yard style boots. Steel toe boots (or wellies) are necessary when handing livestock or when around hazards. Mid-sole protection is needed when you're in an environment that runs the risk of stepping on sharp objects, and if there's likely to be oils or chemicals around, look for slip-resistant soles. 


Benefits of Farming Boots

There are many benefits to opting for farming boots over your regular boots. 

The ones designed specifically for working conditions are likely to have features that help to keep your feet warm during the winter season, protected when faced with difficult conditions, and comfortable at all times. 

These are just a few reasons why farm boots offer the wearer the best pair of work boots:

  • Safety Features for Feet Protection - safety toe caps, made from steel, alloy, or composite materials, protect the toes from getting crushed by heavy falling objects
  • Superior Traction: having slip-resistant outsoles for traction helps prevent accidents when working on slippery surfaces or in muddy fields
  • Breathability: the use of breathable materials in the linings allows air circulation to keep the feet cool and dry when working long hours in hot weather
  • Waterproof or Water-Resistant: having a reliable pair of waterproof farm boots provides peace of mind for rainy days and mucky animal waste
  • Shock Absorbent: many farming boots have features which provide shock absorption that reduces leg fatigue.
