Women officers, Which boots/shoes do you wear?

Hi all

Just wondered what shoes/boots you wear for the job?

Any chance you can post a pic or a website with a pic?

Cheers

Hi emma* can't go far wrong with a pair of Magnum boots we get these issued to both male and female Officers and the majority of my colleagues (including me) really rate them plus as they are boots they give the ankle's extra protection which is always good. :slbg:

Hi Boogaloo

Ahhhh, so these are supplied? I read somewhere about an allowance?

I've been told that my application is moving up to fill a vacancy so hopefully will be getting 'that call' soon, so just wondered what women officers wear on their feet!

haha I like the ones above. I don't know how to put a pic on (I'm not very good ont he computer lol) but here's a link to the ones I bought:
http://www.polimil.co.uk/acatalog/Magnu ... 59_95.html

They're very comfortable and didn't need breaking in or anything, good to run in too. The polimil website is great - it has loads of different boots, does free delivery and when I got mine was very quick too. Would definitely be worth a look.

I do believe that HMP give a boot allowance we get ours supplied by our prison because we are not HMP.
Would still suggest a pair of Magnums though :slbg:

Hi

I am unsure from reading these threads whether or not there is a prison allowance for boots - and if so, how do we get it?

Also, what boots do people recommend? From other topics on this site I have found that there are some who don't rate the Magnums

Hi,
i think it is about 50 quid, haven't checked my recent pay statement. I would get some before you start and then you can get used to them.

Hi All

Do you need boots for the 'job' but also black shoes? If so, what sort of black shoes do we need (females)?

Is there a time when you wear shoes and not boots (and vice versa!).

Thanks

For corporate wear, companies normally prefer their women to wear shoes covering the toes.

High heeled shoes whilst "walking briskly" to attend a whistle alarm, a fire or even a level 1??! :slsh2: :slsh2:
