(Retired) Lab PPE

Happy Lab PPE Day! In lieu of a picture of myself, I've posted a picture of some old, retired (and extraordinarily comfortable) Red Wing boots that I bought for myself once. Protected my toes more than once, these steel toed boots did. (As you can see, I cannibalized the shoelaces.)

As you can see, I got a lot of use out of them.

Check out more (and prettier) pictures of people wearing their lab PPE at!


  1. Jesus, what kind process plant are you working at - and what sort of ghastly reagents are you working with? (I need to know so that I dont accidentally interview there)

    1. I would blame me instead of the plant for spilling caustic soda on my boots.

    2. P.S. I've since learned not to do that.

  2. Looks like the explosion blew you out of your boots!
