Supporting tradesmen and tradeswomen

Unlike most other safety footwear manufacturers, who just shrink it and pink it, Steel Blue makes women’s work boots based on a true female last. As a result, our women’s work boots are more comfortable and supportive for women in trades as they provide a narrower instep and shorter ankle length.

Our women’s work boot range, including our Southern Cross Zip® and Hobart use the best materials and technology to help hardworking women get the job done safely.

It’s all part of our commitment to making the best tradie work boots.
