Filming in extreme conditions? Be prepared with these tips.

FILMING PHOTOApart from choosing the correct clothing, an important component of the overall work equipment are shoes, that protect your feet from moisture, shock, external factors and incidents and accidents at work. For maximum protection and comfort, you must address a couple of questions, when choosing the right shoe. First of all, there are work boots designed for summer and they are different from those you will need in the winter, which provide thermal insulation, protection from rain and snow, and other forms of precipitation. For work in the pits, construction sites, basements and other venues with excess moisture, it is important to find boots with thick rubber soles, that do not conduct electricity, to avoid the risk of possible injuries. Thus, when choosing your work shoes, it is important to consider your working conditions, for example, if your work involves carrying heavy objects, there are work shoes with a solid metal front to protect your toes.


  • When choosing the right work shoes, it is important to remember that top quality shoes, or boots, can protect you from various accidents, high and low temperatures, electricity, excess humidity and the effect of corrosive substances. Choosing the right footwear can, not only, protect you from accidents, but in some instances can save your life. The advantages of wearing work boots is that they are more comfortable than just normal shoes, which relieves your legs and you don’t feel so tired after a day of heavy work. Such shoes will protect your from dirt, rain, snow, cold weather, sand, all the while keeping your feet dry and warm. If necessary, the model can have a metal front, or be made from a synthetic material that is durable and safe, without being overly rough. Modern work shoes often not only safe and strong, but also look good.



  • Work shoes should be purchased a size bigger, as this enables you to wear thick socks underneath, that will keep your feet warm and function as a buffer between your feet and the rough material of the boot. Work shoes are judged on the following factors – sole, material, insulation, interior and exterior elements. It is important to consider the material from which the work boots are made – they must be thick, temperature and water-resistant. Coating is often made from rubber, leather or artificial leather, which in turn determines the shoes’ resistance to environmental and chemical factors. The inner part of the shoes determines their cost as well, since it can be leather or fur, and whilst the latter provides good thermal insulation, such boots will cost much more than the ones in leather or synthetic fibers.


The sole of the work boots can also be of varied materials – either thermoplastic polyurethane of nitrile, both of which have their own pros and cons, for example nitrile protects you from harmful chemicals and slipping, but is rather expensive, while polyurethane is less durable, but much lighter in weight. When buying shoes, it is absolutely essential that they are comfortable, as otherwise, it will put additional pressure on the foot, leading to premature fatigue, calluses and general uneasiness.
