Looks like they have metal eyelets and the soles are bonded with no stitching which is where most of my boot failures

Nope ... no metal anywhere (not even the eyelets).  It's nice to know you can walk through cactus and not have them pierce the leather.  Jumping Cholla are all over my neck of the woods... and the gold likes to hide where the others don't walk.

There are other brands of non-metal shoes on this website as well. Search "non metallic".  There are many choices.  I went on the cheaper side with the Avengers.  I kick rocks out of the way all day long, like I am playing rock soccer.  The ceramic toe helps protect the toes.

Can you provide a link to the exact model please.

Looks like the whole range is here Adam   https://www.oliver.com.au/boots/elastic-sided-boots   Not sure if some might have metal in the toe cap.   Some do have a composite/non metallic toe protector.   ?

I go through boots faster than toilet paper. Drives me nuts!

Always had a mind to buy a good solid pair of hunting boots and ask a cobbler to change out the eyelets with non metallic ones. Most don’t have any other metal to them. They can be resoled too. I have hunting buddies who have a decade plus on their boots. Anyone with knowledge know if it’s a feasible thing to change the eyelets out?

      Hats off to Minelab, hats off to you all, hats as giveaways, I’ll throw my hat... you get it, but doing a search of past topics didn’t hit many if any results on protection from the sun and detecting comfort on a search although a topic buried in here in places I’m sure. Mitchel mentioned a hat solution in a discussion thread with Norvic for using headphones with the 6000 and it got me looking to see what was available at the moment if I want to use headphones instead of my preferred earbuds I have to ditch my wide brim sun hat for a ball cap and put up with the heat of the sun on the back of my neck and shoulders. I was going to convert that hat with hot glue and Velcro to headphone ready but decided to try a commercial version first. Looking around there were only a couple of options, one a sporty outback looking hat be fit on any fashionable lad that I liked but the sun protection was minimal so I ordered a stingray brand audiophile hat that looks like it should be good with the 6000’s headphones.
      anyone here tried one of these out or have another solution, what’s your preferred protection from Mother Nature and to stay comfortable detecting?

      I was looking at wet suit’s and it said 7mm but I wanted to know what’s that in inches.
      Well here’s the formula to find out .
      7. divided by 25.4 = inches
       Maybe some of you knew this but I didn’t.

      I'm looking for a pair of light weight and comfortable boots with hiking soles and no metal eyelets or hooks.  The key words are Light Weight and Comfortable!
      Anyone know of any?

      I use a water proof, metal free calf boot most of the time when I walk on the beach.  I have bought them from various places like Walmart, sporting goods stores and online.  They are both styles of fishing boots and muck boots for agriculture and the like.  All of them crack after just a few months (many miles) and they leak.  In the past I have tried glue, tapes and other things to get more life out of them.  I've tried different brands.
      My last purchase was a pair of Tingley's and they are probably the best so far but they have now cracked down near my big toe.  They have lasted since February.  They have gone up 50% in price since then.
      Does anyone know a glue or fix for this?  I wouldn't mind even slopping something over the outside but it has to be flexible.  
      When the water is warm I could use a Clog or slipper but they don't provide the support and protection when I refill my holes.

      Just got a pair of gloves to replace my work gloves I had snagged from a local hardware store and got these:
      Made really well and have a padded palm. Less money than they junk work gloves I had before.
