How To Select The Right Grubs Boot Sole For You

There are a number of important decisions to be made when selecting a new pair of Grubs Boots. In certain cases, this decision is simple. For horse riding, you need a definitive heel to ensure a good grip against the stirrup.

For Safety boots, you need a steel toe cap. However, for the majority of people, the more important decision will be to purchase boots with a sole pattern that is most appropriate for their typical use. To make this decision process easier, we list the sole patterns available in the Grubs Boot range and then list the Grubs Boot styles against the appropriate sole pattern.

We hope you find this useful and please do call our team if you have any questions.
