I use a super light weight leather trek boot which is gortex lined called INOV8 Roclite 400 "keeps ya nice and dry." Not that it rains much in W.A Razz
The best thing is they are super light.

Had a pair of red backs and blundstones where the sole fell apart up here in the NT, bought a pair of RM WIlliams stockmans, and guess what, they fell apart as well.
RM, s replaced boots with a better model, and no longer sell the stockmans up here. As detecting, depends on where I go now. Have detected in thongs for a while, as the ground was wet, and cane toads made short work of venomous snakes...not ideal though, slip on elastic sides are the go.

Best boots by a long shot are Olivers. Made in Ballarat. The rest are rubbish.

Rays Outdoors are closing down a couple of their outlets in Victoria. They say 50-70%off stock, but you'll probably have to go to the store yourself and see for yourself.

Closing down Frankston, Mentone, Mildura, North Geelong, Traralgon Warrnambool.

. THEY say only available IN STORE, NOT ONLINE

MAY HELP SOMEONE GETTING SOME OUTDOOR EQUIPMENT THEY MAY NEED

CHEERS

detecting shoes - Page 2 Oliver11
After looking around and asking questions, I have just bought a pair of Oliver AT's, model 45632Z (non metallic) boots.

They look and feel the part and have a high reputation.

A bit on the dear side, $200 approx., but they do look strong, supportive and comfortable.

I decided on these because they are both lace up, have a zipper on the sides and are totally non-metallic.

I actually ran my pin pointer over the different boots that I was looking at and these were the only ones that were totally metal free.

I recommend having a look at these. They are commonly sold at industrial safety gear shops but I suggest checking the Oliver website for recommended retailers.

Peter.
