Bates steel or composite toe boots are made to keep your feet safe on the job. All of Bates' safety toe boots, whether steel or composite, are ASTM F2413-11 rated for safety and protection. Bates steel toe boots are heavier, thicker, and the traditional choice for safety toe boots. Composite safety toes are often made from a polyurethane or carbon fiber to offer impact protection in a much lighter boot. No matter which option you choose, wearing a Bates safety toe boot ensures that your feet stay safe while on a mission or patrol.
