CABELA'S Cabela's Lace-To-Toe GORE-TEX® Steel-Toe Work Boots

Been scrimping on comfort and protection to save money on work boots? We incorporated 100% waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® membranes and the support and construction of premium-grade steel-toe boots for a price that rivals that of your yearly disposables. GORE-TEX® fabric is completely impermeable to exterior moisture and allows your perspiration vapor to escape, creating dry sanctuary for your feet in any condition. And the moisture-wicking linings dramatically quicken this evaporation process. ASTM-certified steel toes shield you from on-the-job hazards, and the tough waterproof full-grain leather uppers lace to the toe for incredible support and fit. Goodyear welt construction gives you a wider, more stable platform to walk on and facilitates resoling. The cushioned EVA midsoles and padded removable footbeds absorb the shock of your stride to keep a bounce in your step all day. Abrasion-resistant Helcor toe and heel pads protect these areas from excess wear, while the oil-resistant, non-marking rubber outsoles have a deep tread pattern that gives sure footing on a variety of surfaces. Steel toe is ASTM MI/75 C/75 certified. Imported. Height: 8". Average weight: 4.3 lbs./pair. Men's sizes: 8-14 D and EE widths. Half sizes to 12.

answer 3
They come in 400 gram insulation and un-insulated.

If your moving around while logging I would say that the 400 gram should be sufficient. If you sitting in the cold not moving I would find something else. I can tell you that they will hold up to standing in 4 inches of water for a week straight and keep you feet dry though. Good Luck.

The boots I ordered are 400 gram thinsulate. As for extreme cold for logging, I work in the oilfield and stand outside for hours at a time and my feet always stay warm. I will suggest wearing a pair of good wool socks with sock liners though, just to be safe.

Do not have the specifications but I have owned three pairs and never had a nail or piece of sheet metal come through the sole. I have never had to watch where I stepped.

Firstly, no boot I've seen is 100% puncture resistant. That being said, I do construction and I know that stepping on a nail in a board is no good and hopefully your boot will save you. These boots are the best I've had in making me feel like I'm protected. They have a good, thick sole or harder rubber, which should make them as close to puncture resistant as possible and still be comfortable. The soles will last a lot longer than the softer rubber soles I've had on other boots.

Not sure about this model but the insulated ones have a steel shank. The easiest way to tell: use a strong magnet.

I don't know if they "officially" have a puncture resistant sole, but I work in a shipyard, and frequently stand on steel flat bar that is on edge and it doesn't affect them, nor is it uncomfortable. I've used them for 8 years and never had anything some through the sole.

answer 2
You won't want the steel toed boot if your not using them for safety reasons, because it does add a good bit of weight. Cabelas does have an equivalent boot that is not steel toe. As for comfort, they are better than many, but there are also better ones. You really need to try them out for yourself. These have a hard rubber sole, which will last longer than some of the others. Especially Wolverine boots had some with a softer rubber and you'll wear through those at least twice as fast as these.

Like any boot, use gel insoles. These ones have a solid/hard sole, so extra cushioning will help. Just remember to buy new insoles every 3 to 6 months.

answer 2
I believe they are 72 inches long. the best bet is to pull the one that is still whole and measure it. they go to a store that sells shoes and laces and buy a pair of boot laces.

answer 3
It's always based on number of eyelets, hooks, etc., not the size of the boot, per se. 72 inch laces should work fine. I always double-knot my laces so they never come undone.

Look in the yellow pages to see if a shoe repair shop is nearby. Visit them and get a quote first. A good shop will be able to do this in a reasonable amount of time.

I have taken two pair of these boots to a cobbler and had them resoled. This made them last an extra season of concrete use.
