Steel toe boots come in different protection standards, but when dealing with warehouse work we prefer the Green triangle with CSA symbol – Sole puncture protection with a Grade 1 protective toe boot/shoe.
We have made our list after testing each of these boots, we have rated them by taking in to consideration: price, durability, performance and protection.
Pros: We really like the Dakota 3604, for its affordability and comfort. We tried these out for 6 months and found these shoes to be very comfortable and breathable.
Cons: Unfortunately this shoe is not durable and you will be luck if they last you a year.
Verdict: If your on a budget and your work is does not require too much wear and tear on your shoes, then give them a try.
Fit: The Dakota 3604 has a wide toe great for people with wider feet.
