With the growth of heavy industry, thick-soled boots with reinforced toecaps were needed to protect the feet of workers in Britain’s factories and foundries, later becoming the footwear of the British army. Steel cap boots – with their metal cap exposed or concealed beneath the leather upper – became the footwear of the British working-class male. As skinheads emerged as a youth movement in the early 1960s, their working-class roots were reflected in their adoption of the steel-capped Boot.
By the 80s, skinhead style has become synonymous with football terrace hooliganism and violence. But as the decade approached its anarchic close, steel caps found favor with the punks, whose nihilism was matched by their ferocious creativity. As grunge emerged in America during the late 80s and 90s, steel caps returned on the feet of riot girls and then cyberpunks, before being picked up by fashion-forward kids in Tokyo’s Harajuku district. Durable as ever, the steel-capped boot remains the choice for the most uncompromising wearers with a new generation of customers embracing the steel cap for its authentic and distinctive silhouette.
Our Steel Cap footwear is produced to a very high standard and offers the wearer comfort and a degree of protection. However, our boots are tested in a street environment and have not been subjected to a test to check their compliance with safety standards. We cannot guarantee their performance in a situation that requires the use of footwear compliant with safety regulations.
