Steel toe boots are one of the many ways a construction worker can protect himself from injuries at the workplace. OSHA requires that construction workers wear safety shoes and even further it indicates that 'safety shoes shall be maintained in a sanitary and reliable condition wherever it is necessary by reason of hazards of processes or environment, chemical hazards, radiological hazards, or mechanical irritants encountered in a manner capable of causing injury or impairment in the function of any part of the body through absorption, inhalation or physical contact.'

Review of the Deco Pro Mid Steel Toe Boot

At a manufacturers' suggested retail price of $90.00, it offers one of the best value steel toe boots for the construction pro.

I tested the boot in water and oil, and it offered superior slip-resistant and great waterproofing protection. One of the most important benefits of this particular boot is that it is so lightweight that can be worn all day long and you will not feel tired by wearing them during a long period of time. These boots can fit very will and the steel boot is sturdy, as I dropped a concrete block and couldn't feel the impact on my foot. I also walk and stand inside a water pond, about 4 inches deep, and water did not come through to the inside of the boot, making it ideal for work in areas subject to ponding water or after storm events. In general, I was quite impressed with the Deco Pro Mid ST boot and would recommend it as your working boot, great price and great product. Two thumbs up for this boot.
