Silicone Glue as a toe guard


Recommended Posts

This is another of those small things that has helped me in the field.

I use the toe of my boot to scrape the first layer of dirt when I get a faint signal.

Obviously that is not so great for the life of the boot.

I have found that spreading a nice thick layer of silicone glue

over the area of the boot that I use to scrape with

is an almost bullet-proof way to protect the boot.

fiwi,

You're my savior! I have one foot that's really messed up. No health insurance and being in construction it's really tough to wear a boot let alone walk around on a roof. Maybe the silicone will help

And thanks for the medical solution!

P.S. Don't view this if you're hungry

yeah H John,

SHOEGOO is awesome stuff.

I have found that all that brand's products,

even though they have different names

are essentially the same thing.

Johnno!

Kat just about shed a tear on your comment. And I know everyone on NS has kept my chin up and I'm not going to let you or the great friends here down. We have a positive attitude this year. No stress and get the job done.

Cheers and thanks mate,

Johnno & Kat

I use a piece of heavy plastic (from a "Hot Wheel" toy) for a foot guard and digger. I cut a curved piece of plastic that was shaped right to go over the inside of my foot. I driled two holes in it and laced it up when I laced the boot. It took a little adjustment but I figured out how to make it hang so it covered the inside of my right foot and drug the ground just a little. I didnt notice it at all when I walked but when I scraped my foot sideways it guarded my boot and gave a hard edge to dig with.

I wore metatarsal guards for years and that is where I got the idea. Instead of sitting over your arch like a metatarsal guard it hung to the side of your foot toward te instep. Just like an armor plate down the inside of your foot.

Johnno, those are the ugliest dogs I have ever seen! :yuk-yuk:

Thanks mate, I feel so special. I'm waiting for the other toe to go on the other side that way I can balance out the right foot from the left foot. But look at it this way, when I tell somebody something and they want to see if I have my fingers crossed, I'm styling mate.
