Andrews chainsaw boots.

Recommended Posts

Soles of my feet are knackered had to have injections in both feet a few weeks ago was struggling to walk with the pain went to see a specialist far to many years days hrs on end spent on spikes I've tried every boot I don't think there is the perfect one some will suite one person and not another

Andrews? Stupid Italian boots that don't come in big enough size.

I am bitter.

Need some new boots and seriously thinking about going for Pfanner Tirol Fighter even though they say 12-14 weeks for size 49.


You’ve got the same issue as me, finding comfortable footwear is a challenge at the best of times. Add size 49 into the mix and you’re left with very little choice!

And it doesn’t stop at chainsaw boots. Socks, trainers, shoes, football boots.

These people with little feet don’t understand the struggles…..

On a plus side though having foot long feet is really handy for measuring!

I'm with you there

6'6" tall, 38" inside leg and size 49-50 boots doesnt leave many options for anything wearable.

Open to any recommendations for suitable chainsaw boots - ground use only in my case

I think the Pfanner Tirol look cracking for ground use but thick leather and not sure how good for climbing that will be. Airstreams are the only other one readily available as far as I know.

Do wonder if the tall people in Holland have big feet, maybe they stock bigger boots there?

Pfanners are meant to be good spike boots Paddy, although I get on fine with my Andrews.

I’m not on spikes for hours at a time these days, though.

Pfanners have quite a hard sole then? Maybe I'll whip into radmore tucker at some point and have a look
