I wonder why you would want to wear safety shoes for walking? Does your job require you to wear one? If you want to wear one just for the sake of wearing one, here are some advise to why its not a daily walkabout shoe.

- Its heavy
- The steel toe cap can cause pain
- The temperature inside the shoe is much hotter than normal leather shoes

BTW Red wing used to be sold in Malaysia. In fact one of my relatives worked for the distributor and i got free t-shirts from him.

Anyway for other safety shoes brand you could look for CAT (catepillar). Or those hardware shop sure can find Mr Mark. But if you want safety shoes lookalike, i would go for Timberland or Kickers.

They look like shit. I am potentially in the market for a pair of "manager" level workboots (steelcap + rubber sole) but they need to look like Edward Greens and have a thick leather insole to soak up perspiration.

this is an old thread. I have been using the RedWings Pecos for work for the last 6 years. given free a pair a year by the company.

some may like it some may not. they are very durable and strong.

having seen and used many safety shoes, IMO, they look among the best. the front portion of the shoe is so sleek that it doesnt even look like a safety shoe from the outside.

if you want to be stylo, they even have the cowboy toe type that looks even better.

The Pertama Complex shop is sad to say crap to buy Red Wings. they have limited stock , limited size and have to order everything. Not to mention they are also Rm100 more expensive than the other shops.

the shop lady's cocky attitude doesnt even help.

it may be a bit far for you, best place to buy RedWing boots would be the East Coast - Kemaman. Any hardware shop will sell you the PECOS model for RM500 cash. this was last year. I am not sure if the price has gone up.

In Thailand, the same shoes go for RM1000.

Shop in Pertama wanted RM600 - no discount.

Red Wings also make a type for the office use, they dont look that great, but again one of the best i have seen for office like safety shoes.


Most common model is the PECOS, because 99% of the oil industry uses the same model. if you want fancier models, you may have to order your own.


I do have a few friends who doesnt like this shoe though. they are quite heavy due to the contruction and thick leather.

this is the model used by 99% of the guys in the oil industry. when new, they actually look quite nice with blue jeans.


slightly different version

Kemaman/Dungun still carries the brand. THis is manily due to the Petronas complexes there, they are all mostly using this brand, I used them about 10 years back when constructing the Aromatic plant there.

Hi guys, sorry to say that have a new thread not related to fashion. cause i m planning to have one but dunno how the quality, durability and comfortable of it???? the style and the design i really like it, it something similar like Red Wing 875. But for Red Wing it was too expensive for me and some more i will wear it to construction site. Still have to mention that the brand of Police was not cheap also, it cost me RM260 for a safety boot???!! Pls leave ur comment if u guys experience it. thanks in advance.

do you mean safety boots/shoes?
try the Caterpillar steel toe at Studio R, Midvalley.
if you hv the moolah, they are many reputable brands to choose from such as Dr. Martens, Timberland & Red Wing.
most of the offshore workers i know use Red Wing.

jz went to campbell and pertama to see, i found the black hammer and timberland.

black hammer got 2-3 design, around 180-200 for mid cut ones, timberland more expensive, 300-400 also got, 600 oso shocking.gif other type like camel, cardin, hi tec are all quite expensive as well rclxub.gif

still got some like men's club, spanner, scorpion, police etc etc.

haven seen red wing and dr marten yet, and red wing too. may be tmw will go midvalley if free.


i ask the shop ppl what is the diff between the yellow type sole and the black type, they say the yellow type jz for normal walking, the black type is for work such as construction site.

some i saw is using stitch like black hammer, some are not using stitch, is the stitch type better?

when i try to wear the boot, i feel the middle got a bit tight, the toe part is ok i think, if change to bigger size i fill it is too long already, the tight part shud be able to break in after a while i guess? i read some article they said better dun buy tight cuz steel toe very hard to expand to fit the foot??
