Water Resistant and Waterproof Treatments Extending the life of your work boots

Water Resistant and Waterproof Treatments

Water Resistant and Waterproof treatments help to keep your feet dry when it counts. All Steel Blue boots feature Waterproof soles and premium, ethically sourced Leather.

The Leather used in our work boots is treated during the tanning process so that it becomes Water Resistant and repels water from the surface.

To make Steel Blue boots Waterproof, the highest possible standards are applied during the stitching process. We apply seam sealing tape during the manufacturing process to create a Waterproof barrier and prevent water getting through the stitch holes and into your work boots.

Choosing Waterproof or Water Resistant boots

If you work on a site with light exposure to water and wet environments, our Water Resistant boots are suitable for you. Our Waterproof work boots are the best choice for damp, muddy environments.

The level of water resistance also depends on the type of leather that your boots are made from. For example, Full-Grain, waxy leather is more resistant to water than soft velvet-like Nubuck leather work boots.
