Comment choisir entre des bottes de travail de 6" ou de 8"?

The 6" and 8" work boots each have their distinct advantages. The choice between the two depends on your individual preference, as well as specific needs for your work environment.

For lighter duties like warehouse work, landscaping, plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, light manufacturing, retail stocking, and delivery driving, 6” boots are perfect. These jobs benefit from the mobility and comfort provided by 6" boots, ensuring you stay agile and comfortable throughout your workday.

On the other hand, tasks requiring heavy-duty protection, such as construction, logging, or working on uneven terrain, the 8" boots are ideal. They provide the necessary support and stability for rigorous activities.

It's important to check local regulations and job requirements, as they may vary according to your workplace or profession.

Here are the key advantages to help make your decision easier!



  • Lightweight: 6-inch boots are generally lighter than 8-inch boots, which can make them more comfortable to wear all day long.
  • Flexible: Because of their lower height, they offer greater freedom of movement around the ankle, which can be advantageous for jobs that require great mobility.
  • Versatile: They can be more versatile and suitable for a wider variety of tasks, as they offer a balance between protection and comfort.


  • Extra ankle protection: 8-inch boots offer extra protection around the ankle thanks to their higher height, which can be beneficial in work environments where there is a risk of ankle injury.
  • Improved stability: The taller design often translates to improved stability, especially on uneven terrain, providing a more secure footing for you.
  • Added warmth: The extra height can provide additional insulation, keeping your feet warmer in colder weather conditions compared to shorter boots.

Consider your work environment and the level of protection and support you need when making your choice. Both styles offer unique benefits to keep you safe and comfortable on the job.

When you choose the right boot for your specific needs you can ensure you're equipped for any challenge!
