Boot World's Men’s Lace-Up Work Boots
The Men’s Safety Footwear category at Boot World breaks down into various categories, and the biggest one of these, by far, is lace-up safety footwear utilizing a variety of safety toe technology. Most of the men’s work safety boot brands we carry offer lace-up safety options, such as:
The men's work boot styles offered by these brands, among others, vary widely. Steel toe lace-up boots and shoes can be low-, mid-, or high-top, with designs ranging from classic work boot silhouettes to military-inspired tactical looks and sneaker-like hybrids. Across all these styles offering steel toe protection and waterproof material, lace-ups can't be matched for a secure, controlled fit.
Men’s Lace-Up Work Boots Benefits
Lace-up safety boots offer many benefits, including but not limited to:
A perfect fit: The primary benefit of lace-ups is that the laces themselves allow for you to tighten your safety boots for a snug, secure fit while providing maximum comfort. Or, loosening the laces allows your boots to stay on while affording a bit more mobility and comfort.
Added protection: On some models, like the Work Zone Metguard, the lace-up nature of the boot allows for extra metatarsal protection to be fastened directly to the laces themselves.
Durability you can trust: Typically, a lace boot will just wear a bit longer than a slip-on due to a more controlled fit of the shoe which means you walk more evenly and stay in place which makes the upper, sole and linings last longer.
Customization and replacement: Laces can be removed easily and swapped out for a replacement, repair, or customization. Be sure to remove your laces when performing maintenance like cleaning or application of oils and other products to clean the leather material. If need be, swap for leather laces when welding creates an issue of burning the nylon laces.
Waterproof boot: A waterproof work boot is made from materials that can keep your feet dry and ensure your boots stay protected on the job site. Usually made from waterproof leather and rubber outsole to provide traction on slippery surfaces.
Insulation: No matter how hot or cold the environment is on the outside, your feet should be properly insulated to prevent you from deterring your performance and tasks. An insulated work boot can keep up your mobility throughout the day while protecting your foot. Additionally, modern insulation breathes reasonably well, still insulates when wet, and can come in a variety of different levels for various purposes.
Whatever models you choose, with whatever features, you know you’re getting quality lace up safety toe footwear when you shop with Boot World. One of the features that is ubiquitous across all safety boots is the inclusion of a safety toe. However, safety toe caps come in a variety of styles meant for different needs.
Types of Safety Toe Caps in Men’s Lace-Up Work Boots
Steel Toe: Strong, protective, and more on the heavier side. Be mindful that this type of toe cap may set off metal detectors. A steel toe boot is meant to protect the foot from falling objects, sharp objects, and compression.
Alloy Toe: Made with an aluminum alloy and is lighter compared to steel. Although lighter than steel, alloy safety toes are as durable and strong as steel. Ideal for people who have to stand up all day long.
Composite Toe: Composite materials may include, but are not limited to: polycarbonate, fiberglass, and carbon fiber. Since composite toe shoes are sometimes made with non-metallic materials, they are a better choice for worksites that require metal detection. This is a great choice if you want a lighter work boot with protective insulation and are looking for a work boot that doesn’t experience as dramatic a heat transfer to the toes.
Depending on your needs and requirements, determine which type of safety is right for your occupation.
