Safety Rigger Boots
The Origin of Waterproof Rigger Boots
Did you know the term ‘rigger boots’ originates from the oil and exploration industry? The traditional look and feel of rigger boots was first donned by offshore oil rig workers and were originally known as rig boots, after the workers that first threw on this iconic safety footwear style. Over time, the name of this style of work boot transformed into the term rigger boots, hence its more accustomed name.
