    I have to get some boots with at least a 1/2" heel and the heel edge needs to be close to a 90 degree.
    They can go just above the ankle so I'm thinking 6" will be good enough. They don't have to be steel toed but the toe has to be reinforced with something. No steel shank required.

    What do you guys like? I've seen some Timberland Pros and some Red Wings that both look like they might work. The damn Red WIngs are overpriced unless they feel like my house slippers.

    I'm not even going to be outdoors. It's just a requirement. I was a good climber. I'd probably shit myself now at about 12 feet.

    The Uggs don't have the correct heel.
    I think I have to have tie type shoes although they didn't specify.

    Well, I'm going to be training some people that work out in the field. I suppose they want me to wear the correct footwear to emphasize how important it is. I really don't want to get too specific.

    Understood, back in the day, I had some steel/fiber (can't remember which) toe keens that were super breathable, depending on your climate.....

    Not sure if the heal will work for you, but may be worth checking out.

    Gotcha. So it sounds like you just have to have them as an example?
