Wolverine has recently released a new spin on the safety-toe work boot. Its Overman CarbonMAX boots are equipped with a toe made of a strong resin-coated carbon fiber. Unlike a standard steel toe, the CarbonMAX toes are nonconductive to heat or cold. They’re also lighter and thinner than a traditional safety toe, giving the foot more room without sacrificing strength. The boots are made from full-grain leather with a nylon shank and removable foot-bed cushioning. Price: $180 / COO: China /wolverine.com
