These people with hazardous occupation need special protection and care for their feet.

The average person who may be a salesman or a courier delivery or a pizza delivery man would need duty boots which are protective in nature and cushion the feet adequately. The duty boots for the people on the move should be also light in weight. During the winters it would be advisable to have adequate insulation of the feet, to prevent the feet from loosing heat. To retain the heat within the duty boots have an internal insulation lining. When the individual is involved in work with constant exposure to water, there is a need of water resistant material. Resin or canvas lining may be used with the tough leather to provide the adequate water proofing. The soles of these duty boots should be of tough flexible rubber, for better grip and water resistance. Ideally the height of duty boots while working with water should be up to the calf or knee.

The duty boots for people involved with heavy loads are protected by the toe protection. There is a special casing above the toe region which employs the steel or hardened rubber for protection to the toe. The soles of these duty boots should have greater thickness and provide good stability to the wearer, along with good grip, on the surface. The duty boots where the person has to stand for a long time, use gel insole, for greater shock absorption and better cushioning.

The uppers of duty boots in cold climates should ideally have tough leather or resin whichever retains heat better. In case one is involved only in office work, then soft leather uppers would also do. When one is involved in outdoor work, it is good to have tough leather on the outside.
