When one mentions rubber boots, most people would picture very squeaky and almost impossible to slip on or off boots. However, one name that has changed the way people in Southeast Alaska look at steel toe rubber boots is Xtratuf. Xtratuf’s range of waterproof boots offers the wearer comfort as well as safety. Made in the United States, these steel toe rubber boots feature a beautiful copper tan design that does not restrict their usage to work or the fields alone.

The steel toe rubber boots from Xtratuf feature toe caps that are complaint with Canadian standards. This offers extra protection to the toe area, especially to those who handle heavy machinery or objects on a daily basis. Xtratuf boots also offer 100% protection from water. Protection from water and a wide range of acids, corrosives and contaminants is guaranteed by Xtratuf steel toe rubber boots as they are triple dipped in neoprene rubber. This ensures that the boot shell is seamless and thus, does not run the risk of developing leakages and cracks. The vulcanizing seal further lends strength to the boot shell.

Unlike most ordinary rubber boots, the steel toe rubber boots from Xtratuf are extremely comfortable.

Xtratuf’s steel toe rubber boots are also designed keeping in mind the wearer’s health.
