In my short 8 year masonry career I?ve always used soft toe boots.. No specific reason just what I?ve always felt most comfortable in. Now this past Thursday I was unhooking the compressor form the truck and the leg gave out. Lucky for my I had my foot in the perfect position to catch the brake box with my toes. Of course they?re fractured, that?s besides the point.

Now I?m being a sissy I feel like and running out to get steel toed boots. Reason for this post is to ask.. steel toe, or composite toe? From experience what?s the difference really and what would you recommend?
