    Steel toed boots always seem heavy and cumbersome, but you need to wear them. My trailer has a flip down wheel so I can move it when it's detached from the truck. But the wheel was not lock in place properly and the trailer came down on my left foot, mower weight and all!! I was sore for a couple of days, but thank God I was wearing the proper steel toed boots. It saved my foot from being crushed.

    If that happened on my trailer it would crush the steel and cut my toes off. Thats why I did away with steel toe.
