Hi mate, When I went on the insight course, there were lads there with all different types of boots, I think as long as they cover your ankle and are not heavy steel toe capped types anything goes. I know some lads turned up with unsuitable boots or none at all, but the staff gave them boots. You'll...

Cheers Scott
