Steel Blue reviews

Both YouTube star, Rose Anvil and professional tool review online publication, Pro Tool Reviews have put Steel Blue boots to the test and the results are in – Steel Blue boots are built for comfort, made for work.

Rose Anvil, a “third-generation leather artisan” who has over 27 million views on his YouTube channel, slices a range of safety boots, work boots, sport shoes and casual shoes in half to review the leather quality and construction of the materials used in the footwear.

He chose to dissect the Steel Blue – Blue Heeler, a high-leg western style safety boot with a square toe.

“They’re a really good boot.”

Rose stated that when purchasing new boots, he looks for “something that is durable, safe, easy to slip on and waterproof”. After trialing the safety boots, he said “my initial wear impression was that these have a really comfortable steel toe which is important… I was surprised at how comfortable they were for a steel toe.”

Sparks go flying when cutting through the ErgoDefender™ or hardened Steel Toe Cap as Rose says, “I think I just destroyed the band saw blade.”

“What do I think of these boots now that we have got them torn apart? I think they’re a really good boot.”

“You’d be happy with these boots especially if you’re looking for a pair of boots you can beat up, that are reliable, that aren’t going to get your feet soaked, that aren’t going to not protect your feet, that are going to be easy to slip on… I’m pretty impressed with them”.

“Function meets form perfectly.”

Pro Tool Reviews also chose to review the Steel Blue – Blue Heeler. The comfort and quality were scrutinized and after putting the boots to work, they gave them an overall Pro Rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. “We found these boots really comfortable to wear. And we mean really comfortable. You can stand all day long on concrete or walk the uneven terrain of a rocky construction site. They seem to handle it all.”

Steel Blue has demonstrated that happier feet increase productivity so a good quality pair of work boots are an important tool. Pro Tool Reviews also said that they, “couldn’t help but note the wide variety of boots available for nearly any preference or occupational need… Whether standing around on concrete or climbing, these boots can get you through the day.”

“The ASTM F2413 certified steel toe doesn’t feel too heavy—and you forget it’s there for the most part” while the “polyurethane Ortho Rebound insole works really well to reduce shocks to the footbed.”

The majority of Women’s and Men’s Steel Blue boots feature a durable TPU or Thermoplastic Urethane outsole and Pro Tool Reviews found that the outsole “provides a high tolerance against cuts, abrasion, splitting, and cracking. It also gives you EH (electrical hazard) protection as well as anti-slip and oil-resistance. Plus, if you happen to work on really hot surfaces, TPU can withstand heat up to 266°F! You would think all of this durability would make the outsole stiff and inflexible. In actuality, we could bend and twist it quite a bit—possibly explaining why we found it comfortable to squat and climb with these boots.”

To go with the 4.5 star review, Pro Tool Reviews said “overall, we can give these a hearty recommendation.” Click here to view the full 4.5 star review.
