Fortunately, there are steel toes that offer a toe protector already applied to the boot. These toe guards are generally contstructed of a hard rubber material and can either be glued or stitched into the boot. A stitched boot guard will last longer and help reduce the risk of the toe guard pulling apart from the boot during use. Look at the overall construction of the boot the next time you are looking for a new pair and need a toe guard.
Many boots, however, do not come with the applied toe protector. There are still options to help you out!
One option that is available are the pre-molded, rubber toe-guards. Rogan's Work Boots carries the Red Wing Toe-Guards online now.
These toe guards consist of a flexible rubber that can be adjusted and moved to fit the unique toe shape of your work boots. Although the toe-guards are placed on the shoe using an adhesive, they stay on very well. In addition, it is recommended to go around the entire toe-guard with adhesive after sticking the toe-guard on the boot. This is done to ensure the toe-guard does not pull apart at the seam with the boot. Click here to purchase a pair of Red Wing Boot Bumpers now.
This product is brushed on as a liquid and then hardens as it dries to form a protective shell on the toe that is actually bonded to the boot. The boot guard can be applied to both new and used work boots. And because it is not a solid rubber covering means that it can't be ripped off the boot if it gets hooked or caught on something. Instead, it will simply chip or flake and can be easily reapplied if that happens. Click here to purchase KG Boot Guard now.
