We’ve just added PLENTY of new shoes & boots from one of our favorites and most trusted brands, Timberland PRO. They are popular in construction, manufacturing, warehousing and first responders. However, we’ve received a few questions on what makes the steel toe, alloy toe and composite toe different. So we’re gonna break it down for you so you can find the perfect option.
The Steel Toe –
They are made with a heavy-duty steel that is coated with epoxy. The epoxy simply helps to resist corrosion on the toe cap. They meet ASTM impact & compression safety standards for any workplace that requires them. There is an asymmetrical shape to fit your feet correctly and comfortably.
WHY BUY EM’ : STURDY, HEAVY-DUTY, THIN, MAX PROTECTION
The Alloy Toe –
This type of toe is similar to a steel toe but a lot more lightweight. This aluminum toe offers military-grade protection. They also meet ASTM safety standards.
WHY BUY EM’ : STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT, MILITARY-GRADE PROTECTION
The Composite Toe –
This type of toe is also lightweight and is non-metallic & non-magnetic. They meet ASTM standards and are slower to conduct cold.
WHY BUY EM’ : LIGHTWEIGHT, NO METAL, GREAT FOR EXTREME TEMPERATURES
