Are you and your shop buddies down to test your steel toe boots? If not, then no worries, because these brave men put their boots to the test with a hammer, a cinder block, and a vehicle. Yep, tire to the toe. Fast forward to the three-minute mark to watch the steel toe work boot test.

The boots did survive the worst-case scenario, but I don’t think they survived the last shop experiment. The hot dog weiners didn’t look intact once they cut the boots open. If you want to keep your toes, don’t get too brave testing your work boots. If your current pair could need a replacement, then check out these men’s work boots and shoes.

Steel Toe Boots vs. Car – Random Machine Shop Experiments

Composite Toe vs. Steel Toe Boots

The most significant difference is that composite toe work shoes do not have a metal toe. People who have gone through several pairs of square steel toe boots and composite boots will even suggest that there isn’t much of a difference in safety features.

Many people prefer composite toe work boots because they feel more lightweight and moisture-wicking. They’re also a type of shoe to consider if you have to go through metal detectors at work.
