The CarbonMAX safety-toe boot from Wolverine is light in weight to reduce strain on legs and feet. Though the toe cap is thinner—for more room and comfort—the boot still meets ASTM standards for protection from falling and rolling objects. The toes also are non-conductive to heat and cold. Boots have leather uppers with abrasion-resistant heel and toe reinforcements. The Overman style starts at $180 at the company’s website and is available in men’s sizes in several color patterns and in 6-inch lace-ups and an 8-inch Wellington.
