    Depends on what your like and can afford. I personally stick with 10 inch boots as they are versatile and are the standard for BDU's or cargo uniform pants. I would listen to the poster who said buy a cheap pair first.

    Having sped hundreds of newbies (2000 Olympics was bad enough) to tell them to get a pair of cheap BLACK hiking boots and some good inners soles from K-mart has paid off to those who listen. The number of "head wobblers" who have turned up in dress shoes (like your Penny Loafers) to do a 12 hour shift in the rain, is pathetic. Their culture is not to spend a $0.01 on anything not provided by the cmopany and then complain of being wet or tired 2 hours into a shift. Perhaps you have some hiking boots you could dye black for now ?

    If I had $10.00 for every shift I rolled my ankle and was saved by my high boots I would be alot richer. Ok it saves on swelling until you get home but it is the same as bandaging a sprain.

    Buy a cheap pair, first. If you haven't quite 'started' security yet, never know if you're even going to like it.

    Personally I like 6"-8" boots, as they give good support to the ankles
    +1, I use to wear Hi-tec Magnums, before I switched to Nike boots. Which, by the way are sooooooo (expletive) comfortable. Anyway, years back I was in a foot chase with county police. Slipped and twisted the (expletive) out of my ankle. Ended up in the ER with a ankle the size of a softball, doc told me that the boots helped, or else it would have been much worse.

    Although Security Consultant's coment was tongue in check, there is some truth to it. Where do you work. If you work at a muddy construction site site then you will want something tall. If you are in an office setting a pair of uniform oxfords would be fine. Personally I like 6"-8" boots, as they give good support to the ankles.

    Could depend on how high or deep the doodo is. Welcome to the site.

    I know you all were thinking that.
