Thanks Rex_Kwon_Do, yea I've seen the Mini-Mil boots and the look good but I need a safety toe. I don't think I can get away with having a toe covers for non-safety toe shoes because I have to do a lot of climbing ladders and crawling in tights spaces. I wish Belleville made a composite toe boot, I'd buy that in a heart beat.

And thanks Barefootin! That seems like a good option, but I'm not in the field every day just a couple months out of the year so I didn't want to spend too much money on this. I found these Red Wing boots that come in a width of H and was thinking about trying them out, but I don't know the heel to toe drop :/

Anyways, after looking more online and in other forums this seems like a mythical unicorn that a lot of people need/want and nobody offers an out-of-the-box solution. Right now it looks like the only real option is to do what you said, Barefootin, and have a custom boot made  Undecided Hopefully a company will realize this hole in the market and fill it... And if anybody was able to find something, again please let me know, I'd be very interested in a minimalist safety toe boot.

Thanks,
Dan

It depends on your budget...  I typically wear Oashatoes over minimalist shoes...  However, when I am on the shop floor around lifts/manipulators I must wear steel toes with metatarsal protection...  I ordered a pair of composite I-Met Steel Toe boots in H width a few years ago and took them to a Cobbler.  He removed the heal, sole, shank and insole per my request and resoled them with a flat 6mm Vibram sole I chose from his catalog.  They must be a "sewn" welt design...  They are surprisingly flexible with ground feel comparable to a pair of VFF's with the Spyridon sole, and about a 3mm heal to toe drop.  It's been a while, but I think I had about $300 into them.  I'd do it again....   Wink

I am very pleased with my Bellvile MiniMil boots.  Mine have neither a steel toe nor a composite one, but I believe there are workarounds for toe protection.  The MiniMil has a Vibram sole and is zero drop or very close.  I have worn them all day without any problems.  My only negative would be that it took about 5 miles to break in (either me, the boots, or both), and I would recommend boot socks until you get through the break in period.

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum but have been reading BirthdayShoes reviews and wearing bare foot shoes for over a year now and LOVING it! My feet no longer hurt at the end of a long day! But I have had to start wearing my old steel toe work boots for work and it has been such a pain. I had to work 12+ hour shifts last week and my feet were killing me at the end of each day. I have to go back out into the field next week and am dreading it. So I was wondering if there is any bare foot composite safety toe work boot? I know that it would be hard to have a thin flexible sole in a work boot, but even if it has a zero drop and a wide toe box, I'm sure that would make a huge difference for my feet. If anybody has seen a safety composite toe work boot that has a zero drop and a wide toe box please let me know. And the composite toe is preferred over a steel toe because I have to go through a metal detector which means I have to take off my boots each time. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot!
Dan

Looks like some cleaning needs to happen; the spammers are gaining access.

That will ruin the forum in no time if it's not held in check ASAP.

To find a site is legit or not, you can do some methods. You can check whois lookup for a domain name. Visit the site WhoisXY.com here you can check whois information for domain name. If the information is public and looks legit,you can note the email id, contact number of the domain name owner or administrative or technical department or else sale department. It will help you to contact them if you have any problem after using their services or buying their products. Then you can visit the site ScamAdviser.com check whether the site is trusted or not. If the result will "High Trust Rating. This Site Looks Safe To use." It is good site. Then you can visit Webutation.info here you can read users or customers reviews, ratings and feed backs about the site and their services. If they said good, you can start using the site.

6PM is Zappos' clearance site, as others have said.  I've bought from them, they're legit.
