There's tons of option, I have three different pairs of work boots:

-The standard kind which I use most of the year, Dakota Tarantuals, (about $150)

- pair of Dunlop steel toed rubbers for pipeline work (about $250)

-A pair of Dakota "Rig Master" boots for very cold weather (about $250)

As a scaffolder you won't want really heavy boots like the last two I listed as you'll be crawling around a lot, you should be able to get away with a standard pair but get them a size bigger and buy some warm thermal socks.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
