Toe protection for any trade

Steel Blue work boots give you the choice of hardened Steel Toe Caps or non-metallic Composite Toe Caps. Both styles provide outstanding 200J drop force protection for ultimate safety.

You’ll find hardened Steel Toe Caps in our popular men’s and women’s Southern Cross® Zip and Argyle® work boots which are ideal for Builders and Carpenters. Steel Toe Cap work boots are designed to resist nail gun punctures, power saw cuts and rolling objects carrying 15kN of force so that you can step confidently on any building site. Our men’s Argyle® Zip and versatile Parkes Zip style also includes Composite Toe Cap options.

When superior impact protection is required, Steel Blue safety boots with the additional feature of a Met-Guard protect the Metatarsal area of the foot by absorbing impact and flexing with the foot while withstanding a drop force of 100 joules. The Argyle® and for those that require a Zip Sided boot, the convenient Argyle® Zip range includes Met-Guard options.

All Steel Blue safety boots meet Australian and New Zealand Safety Footwear Standard AS 2210.3.

Tradies and construction safety boots built with the best materials and technology

Our Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Outsole is the ideal all-rounder for many trades. Providing slip resistance, plus rugged safety features and the flexibility to move, TPU is an ideal outsole material for Australian building sites.

Paired with a Scuff Cap or Bump Cap to protect the high-quality Leather upper material, Steel Blue boots are engineered to last. For those working on busy jobsites such as Carpenters, Bricklayers and other Tradies, our optional Penetration Resistant soles reduce the risk of sharp objects puncturing the sole, providing an additional protective layer.

Ankle and Mid-Cut boots

When you’re up and down ladders, standing for long hours or walking around building sites, Steel Blue’s Ankle Boots and Mid-Cut Boots provide comfortable support. The padded scalloped collar and padded tongue of the Southern Cross® Zip and Parkes Zip styles offer flexibility and ease of movement when bending, crouching or climbing ladders on the work site.

Enhanced safety

Steel Blue safety boots feature Anti-Static technology as standard. Built-up static electricity within in your body dissipates through the sole and into the ground, protecting against ignition hazards such as flammable materials or gases

Steel Blue non-conductive work boots are a secondary source of protection for Electricians and those that work in electrical environments. The Outsoles used in our Electrical Hazard boots provide a supplemental form of protection from hazardous step potential, which is the difference in electrical potential between the feet while standing on the ground.
