Today we are going to be doing a review about Ariat Men’s Workhog 11″ Steel Toe Work Boots for our professional and hobbyist welders out there. I understand that most of you already have an idea that having the proper and a top quality boot is an important part of your work paraphernalia. The work boot is an important part of a welder’s Personal Protective Equipment or the PPE for short. Most people would neglect find a high quality boot, thinking that a normal boot will do it as well as a proper welding boot. Let me tell you that it will be able to protect you from some risks that you might face while you are welding, but not all because it isn’t designed for it like a welding boot is.
I’m going to show you a great example of a top quality welding boot today. If you like this boot, you can make the purchase at Amazon! Have you heard of Amazon before? Amazon is a great online shop that many Americans are quite familiar with. The thing I like about Amazon is that it allows you to see honest reviews from those customers who previously purchased the product. With Amazon, you can have the product be delivered to your doorstep at your home or at work.
Let’s take a quick look at it. Here is an image of the boot.
You can purchase this boot starting at the price of 123.73 US DOLLARS to 237.99 US DOLLARS. The boot has been made from genuine leather with a thick rubber sole as you can see in the photo. For sure, it will keep the sole of your feet protected in case you step on something sharp which might injure your feet. The shaft of this boot measures approximately 11″ from the arch. The western style design of this boot features a beautiful elaborated stitched shaft and a steel toe protection in a wide square profile. It has passed the ASTM F2413-11 M/I/75 EH. I’m happy to say that the boot is duratread oil and slip resistant.
You can trust the Ariat brand. It has been founded with one simple objective and that is to be able to provide the most technologically advanced boots. Ariat is a top leading brand. It will protect you from anything that you might encounter, and if you are into the equestrian hobby then for sure you will enjoy this boot too.
Here are some customer reviews for the boot:
“I’ve spent hundreds of dollars buying work boots that are required for safety, steel toe. When you squat or kneel, they pinch & dig into the top of your foot. Not so with these boots.They have plenty of wiggle room. THESE ARE THE MOST COMFORTABLE BOOT I’VE EVER WORN!!! I work 10-14 hour days & have never wanted to wear my work boots anywhere except work. I WEAR THESE EVERYWHERE!” — S
“Great boots, but not quite like the old ones my husband had that were the exact same. Got them for him for Christmas and upon opening the box they were scuffed up and I hadn’t even taken them out of the box, the first time he wore them the glued insole came completely out in one boot and the other one starting peeling, I’ll have to get some glue and glue them back down, he never had a problem with the other ones. They are still great boots, my husband says they are comfy, and hopefully they hold up for a while like the last pair.” — Jacie T.
“Bought a pair of the steel toes from Sheplers. Boots are great quality and fairly comfortable right out of the box. My only complaint is that they felt like they fit snug at first…but after just barely few days of break in…they feel a little big. My foot slips around way more than it should. Wishing I would have ordered them 1/2 size to a full size smaller( they’re 12D, I would be better with 11.5D or 11D). Even with them being a bit large…they look great and are comfortable enough for 10 – 12 hour workdays. I would recommend these to anyone, but suggest trying them on in a store or just ordering them small.” — Dallin Taylor
