Steel-toe work boots are highly recommended - any kind you like.  They are 
required when climbing commercially nowadays, as is a hard hat and safety 
glasses.  Don't be an 'amateur' when it comes to safety.  These things are 
required for a reason.  So if you're going to climb, spend the money on the 
proper equipment and be safe.
So far, the hard hat and safety glasses have proven their value to me while 
climbing.  I've had things hit my helmet many times and I had a piece of steel 
fly into my glasses once while grinding off a seized bolt (would have lost my 
eye had I not had glasses on).  I've not had anything land on my feet yet, but 
it's just a matter of time I'm sure...
