I have that same nagging feeling.Never heard of them. Something deeply embedded in my mind is telling me to never buy a pair.
My next pair of boots need to have that rubber toe cap. Last 2 pairs of steel toes have shown steel within 3 months of wearing them. The boots still have quite a bit of life left in them, but the exposed steel makes them look haggard.Sparky J said:Used to like them. Had a good run with some years ago that looked similar to deep cover's picture but without the orange bands. I liked the textured toe stuff as I blow through the regular leather toes quickly. Then the f ers went and discontinued them they were honestly the best most comfortable pair I have ever had I have tried on a few pairs since but each one had some kind of manufacturer issue from chunks of the soles coming out to rough seams inside of them.
I have been getting red wings and they have like a rino liner coating you apply to it. But my last pair they had this new stuff I tried (sorry the name escapes me). It's almost like an epoxy soccer players and ice skaters use it. There both decent but depending on what type of work you do it does need to be reapplied and once done (at least the first type) will come off easier again. My epoxy stuff has been on about 9 months and is worn to the leather right now.My next pair of boots need to have that rubber toe cap.
