Choosing Work Boots for Your Job – Part 2

On the blog yesterday and today, we’re taking a closer look at the work boots we offer, and finding out what is so great about our Timberland footwear. We looked at some of our soft toe shoes and safety toe boots, so today we’ll look a little closer at some of the steel toe options.


A good pair of steel toe work boots can be a real lifesaver on the job, providing comfort for your foot, as well as protection from falling objects. Some jobs actually require steel toe boots, so knowing your options can help you choose the best pair for your needs. We specifically carry Timberland footwear, a trusted brand in work boots. You can be sure of your shoe choice when ordering one of these options.

The PRO 6” Pit Boss Steel Safety Toe work boot is a ruggedly stylish option in soft, brown leather. The steel toe provides protection for your toes, while the polyurethane midsole offers all day, durable comfort. The Goodyear welt construction ensures the durability of the work boots, and the cast metal top hooks allow ease of lacing. These boots feature a nylon shock-diffusion plate for support and torsional rigidity. Perhaps one of the most important features, coming in closely behind the steel toe, these work boots feature open-cell polyurethane footbeds with antimicrobial treatment that keeps your feet comfortable and breathing, as well as providing odor control.

Another really great choice is the PRO 6” Hyperion XL Alloy Steel Toe Waterproof work boot. This boot is a little more modern looking, combining brown and black premium leather and waterproof membrane. These work boots are packed with little details that make them an excellent choice for many jobs. Waterproof membrane and leather keeps your feet dry, while also offering increased abrasion resistance. The alloy steel toe, shaped on TiTAN XL, is designed to give you lightweight protection and a generous fit around your toes. A lightweight molded EVA midsole offers an athletic performance quality to these boots, while a fiberglass shank gives excellent structural support. The dual-density, dynamic Anti-Fatigue technology absorbs shock and returns the energy at key zones of your foot. It also gives you better moisture management throughout the day, keeping you comfortable at your job. If you’re looking for something a little closer to a sneaker, rather than a full on work boot, the PRO Powertrain Alloy Safety Toe ESD work shoe might be exactly what you had in mind. This work shoe looks like a heavy duty black sneaker, but features an alloy safety toe for lightweight protection- as well as being our most popular ESD shoe. Made from a premium microfiber leather and athletic breathable mesh, this shoe is a great choice for a variety of jobs.

If you’re looking for work boots, or just planning ahead, be sure to look at the many Timberland options on our Footwear page. With many different styles, and various neat features, these shoes are all designed for your protection and comfort on the job.
