Steel toe work boots keep construction workers and those who work with heavy equipment safe from heavy objects. Heavy objects and machinery could potentially fall onto the foot of a worker and severely damage his feet, which is why it is often a requirement that people in this industry wear steel toe leather work boots. While these types of boots are not necessarily fashionable, it is imperative to keep them clean and dry to extend the longevity of the protection they provide for your feet.
Air dry the steel toe leather work boots at room temperature; do not leave them outside to dry.
Keep boots away from all heat sources, as the sun, fireplaces, heaters and even hair dryers cause the leather to harden and crack.
Apply shoe oil on a rag to freshly dried shoes and leave it to dry overnight, wiping it off in the morning.
