Are Steel Toe Boots Waterproof?

Admit it or not boots that are not waterproof are of no use!

I mean who knows what the roads are holding for you the next day or the clouds start pouring on you beautiful drops of water or the snow flakes settle on your boots to make them wet!

It is inevitable for the boots to encounter with water and moisture at some point of time and continuous exposure to the same will eventually damage your non-waterproof boots.

Are Steel Toe Boots Waterproof

But if you say “I prefer protection of my feet more than protection of the boots from elements of weather!” 

Who said you can’t protect your toes from impacts and the boots from moisture at the same time?

Yes, you heard it right! Steel toe boots do come in waterproof varieties as well to serve both for protection from impacts and water!

Isn’t that great?

Absolutely and that’s what this article has got in store for…..

The best steel toe work boots that are waterproof!

Best steel toe waterproof boots

1.) WOLVERINE Men’s Floorhand 10″ Waterproof Steel-Toe Wellington Boot

Wellington boots are used in winters by many but I would not recommend you to do so as these boots have steel toe boxes that can turn pretty cold and transfer the cold to your feet and make them freeze.

Nevertheless, the toe protection along with the waterproof feature makes them a perfect pair of boots for construction, farming and gardening because all these activities need waterproof as well as toe protection boots.

Talking of the comfort, which is the most crucial for me, these boots have fully cushioned footbed with shock absorption technologies offered by the brand and the rubber midsole just provides the apt support.

The 10.75 shaft height makes it all the more perfect for rainy days or if you have to work in standing water. And don’t you worry about the slippery grounds with these rubberized slip resistant outsoles.

2.) KEEN Utility Men’s Lansing Mid Height Steel Toe Waterproof Work Boots

I just can not tell you how much I am in love with these boots. First of all they just don’t look like boots to me, they give me the feel of some sports shoes that serve the work of a heavy duty work boot.

The design is just so sporty. The lug sole pattern on the rubber outsoles provides for unmatched grip on slick surfaces as they are oil and slip resistant and non marking too.

Who says boots can’t be waterproof and breathable at the same time? These boots will shut their mouth while being waterproof and breathable at the same time with the classic mesh lining integrated with the waterproof membrane to keep moisture out and vapour in.

The add ons? The TPU shank provides added support and the bottom of the boots are EH rated in case you encounter electricity. Need more?

The moisture wicking textiles run the entire length of the boots to keep the feet dry all day long and I could not be more overwhelmed by this unique feature that uses probiotics to control odor from the boots that you might end up with your sweaty feet.

Oh did I forget to mention the obvious? Yes they are of course steel toe boots!

3.) Ariat Groundbreaker Chelsea Waterproof Steel Toe Work Boot 

These boots will solve the problem that you might be encountering with steel toe boots in the winters! That running cold of the feet with the steel toe box turning cold!

No more with these boots in your feet as they are insulated to provide you the warmth needed for the winters. Also similar to the last boot that I mentioned, these boots too keep the water out and the air in with the presence of both waterproof features and the mesh lining.

Not only do these work boots protect your toes being steel toe boots, but they have much in store for the all-round protection of your toes!

The metatarsal guard along with the stability technology and the 90 degree heel provides for ultimate protection of the feet while working in areas such as the warehouse, construction, farm, etc.

You know I will never choose a boot without comfort because I can never compromise on that and these boots excels in doing so with the 4LR technology that is the four layer rebound technology that returns maximum energy back to the feet while giving you a cloudy soft feel.

And it’s a wrap!

So, the next time someone tells you steel toe boots cannot be waterproof shut their mouth and show the boots you are wearing! (I mean obviously one from the above mentioned steel toe waterproof boots).

I have mentioned 3 different types of steel toe waterproof boots that must fit into your category of work and demand!
