Tonight’s main event fight…composite toe vs steel toe

in the red corner, we have the all veteran favourite: steel toes

In the blue corner, the young up and coming star: composite toes

Sorry to spoil the fun, but the winner will depend on what industry you work in.

if you want to discover which one is the best for you, you must first understand the difference between the two, and why they exist


Steel Toes

Steel toes have been protecting toes for years and years.

Its simply a super-tough piece of steel covering the toes, which stops anything falling

Composite Toe cap

Composite toes are the new kid on the block when it comes to toe protection.

Composite is just a scientific name, which basically means They contain no metal, so they are made from things such as plastics, carbon fibre and rubbers.


Myth Or Reality? “If The Steel Toe Snaps It Can Cut Off Your Toes”

We’ve all heard the story of the guy who dropped something heavy onto his foot, and the steel capped toe broke, amputating his toes in the process…..ouch!

Well, our good friends at the ‘Mythbusters’ cleared this one up for us. If you haven’t seen the episode, here are the results:

Myth busted!

“Using similar tests to those used to test steel toe boot certification, Adam and Jamie determine that your toes are much safer with steel toe boots than without. There was no toe-cutting curling of the steel toe, and even using a blade attachment didn’t work, only glancing off the steel toe to cut right above where it ended”

So, whats better?

Both steel and composite toes exist mainly to stop your toes being crushed- and they both do a damn good job of this.

Remember that both options are approved  so in terms of general protection against impacts and electrical hazards, they will keep you safe. There are some pros and cons to both, listed below
