You're a manly man, a tough guy. You're not about to admit when you're cold, even if it's 45 degrees below zero. But protecting your feet from freezing temperatures isn't about how tough you are; it's about making sure you have the proper equipment to get the job done. Frozen toes make you more susceptible to tripping or falling; it can even cause permanent damage! Keep your feet in proper working order with the right men's insulated work boots.
Steel-toe work boots protect your toes from injury. It's no accident that many different industries require workers to wear steel-toe work boots; heavy objects fall every day. If you do your heavy lifting in the wintry weather or a cold environment, such as a meatpacking plant, you need insulation. Insulated steel-toe work boots are a great option for you.
If you need to protect your feet, but don't need to stick with steel, consider insulated composite-toe work boots. Steel is that it gets hot in the summer, making your toes feel like they're on fire, and cold in the winter, making you feel like you're walking on ice. Composite toe work boots offer protection both from injury and fluctuating temperatures.
Leather boots are rugged and perfect for working outside. When winter hits, though, and you have to traipse through snowdrifts and slush puddles, you have to have insulated work boots. For men, options include everything from natural fibers, such as wool, to high-tech Thinsulate. Just as its name suggests, it adds warmth but not thickness.
