Red Wing's King Toe work boot offers comfort and extra toe room
There's no doubt that Red Wing has become one of the biggest names in work boots. The brand is known for offering comfortable, durable boots, and we've featured some of their styles in the past. Now, we take a look at the Red Wing King Toe collection and see what's in these boots.
The King Toe collection features several different styles in 5", 6" and 8" heights. Each model has its own set of protection features, from electrical hazard protection to puncture and water resistance.
Red Wing describes these boots as ideal for light-to-medium-duty work situations in both indoor and outdoor environments. All boots in the King Toe collection feature a non-metallic safety toe cap that meets ASTM safety standards.
more wiggle room
One benefit of King Toe boots is the larger toe box. This design provides 44% more toe room than Red Wing's standard boot. For those who stand for long periods of time, this feature is sure to keep your toes comfortable and not crushed.
Each pair of boots in the King Toe line has its own safety profile configuration from the following list:
- Non-metallic safety toe cap
- Red Wing Waterproofing System
- Electrical Hazard Protection
- Metatarsal Guard
- Thinsulate insulation
- Puncture resistance
- Vibram outsole
- Swen-Flex Insole
- Heat resistance (up to 475°F)
As mentioned, you can find the King Toe boot in three different height configurations: 5 inches (designed for women), 6 inches, and 8 inches. The best boot for you will depend on the level of protection you want, with taller 8 inch boots offering the most security and protection.
The 8" 3530 and 6" 4456 come with metatarsal guards to protect the instep while you work. Like most of the range, these boots also include electric shock protection.
If you're looking for a compact 6" safety toe boot, there are several different options in this collection. Models 2241, 2234 and 2235 give you all the standard protection you need, with non-metallic safety toes and ASTM rated static dissipative.
Of the 15 King Toe shoe styles, 11 are made of Red Wing leather and are water resistant.
