More About Feet Ever
Hello there, it’s me, Jonathon, a founding member and author of Boot Barn, and I welcome you to our site.
I co-founded this website with Sheren to help you find the best suggestions on different boots and shoes to offer protection and comfort to your foot. You might be interested to know why I started this blogging website and what inspired our team. Plus, you might be keen to know how we select our reviews and put up with different suggestions for different footwear and problems of your feet.
Well, I don’t have a pretty fascinating story, I guess.
But, I have…
Yes, 15+ years of experience in construction sites and the metal industry.
Wondering What The Relation Of My Experience With Footwear Blogging Is?
During my long career, I had to use various casual, working, and regular boots and shoes to protect my feet and regular uses with style. I could still remember my first pair of work boots that had blown me away with blisters and burns only in the first few hours, and I had to take a day off almost immediately. That was a horrific moment.
Also, later, I could understand the difficulty of picking the right boot for hiking as I loved going to the mountains on weekends. And finding the casual boots for friends and family meet-ups was even more difficult.
With my years of experience, I finally understood how hard it is for you to pick the right footwear. And sadly, you may hurt your fingers, feet, and knees quite badly due to improper footwear.
Long story short, I found it difficult to pick any boot for any occasion initially. So, I decided to launch Boot Barn to help people in different sectors with the best footwear suggestions.
I hope my experience of wearing different footwear during my long career would come in handy for you, irrespective of your needs of work boots, hiking boots, snow boots, or just a pair of fair casual walking boots.
Nonetheless, I know that only my experience isn’t enough for footwear industry-related suggestions. So, I constantly update myself with the newest shoes in the market and what’re researchers publish. Plus, I love feedback from different people to enrich my knowledge on footwear to serve you with my best expertise.
Work Boot Is Important:
Although Boot Barn is focused on bringing the latest updates on all of your foot-related problems along with boots and shoes, we have a dedicated segment for work boots only. It is because during my long working career in construction sites.
When I bought my first pair of boots, I was so excited that I took one that looked the best in my eyes. I ignored comfort, steadiness, and safety. And the result was pretty obvious.
The boot was heavy, filthy, and not at all comfortable but anything else. I was a nook, and it took me almost a year to know the true importance of wearing a comfy and protective pair of work boots and shoes.
With my 15+ years of experience in different working sectors, I know the difficulty in choosing the right work boot for various areas, including construction sites, metal works, carpentry, and what not! That’s why my footwear specialist team and I have decided to arrange a particular segment of our blog only for work boots.
Here, you will find solutions to different footwear problems that may come from working in demanding conditions. Also, we will review, compare and tell you the pros and cons of all the popular working boots, from the most expensive ones to the affordable work boots.
Thus, Boot Barn promises to bring a one-stop solution for all your footwear-related problems, including work boots.
However, here’s a disclaimer:
“I am not a certified physician or footwear specialist. Thus, please don’t consider my suggestions as an expert’s advice for solving different foot-related problems.
