Steel toe shoes are durable shoes that have a steel reinforcement in the toe to protect the foot against falling objects. Steel toe shoes also often have steel inserts in their soles to prevent puncture from below. Steel toe shoes are important in the construction industry and in many industrial settings.
Dr. Martens 8761FH 10-Eyelet Cap Toe Boot - Black too stiff

I was looking for boots to wear on our shop floor as steel toes are mandatory and although these boots look great and are top quality, the leather is unfortunately too stiff for me and end up pushing in whenever they bend. I'm sure it would be a matter of breaking them in, but I couldn't imagine wearing them daily until the leather softens enough. I would not recommend them for occasional use.
