Timberland PRO 40000 Review – Met Guard 6” Steel Toe Boot

Timberland PRO 40000 boots protect all welders, both men and women. They are among the few welder work boots we have found and whose sizes are listed in the size chart.

Like the 53530 Timberland boots we saw earlier, they’re made of Ever-Guard ™ leather. These boots are designed to resist abrasion and withstand wear and tear even in the harshest working conditions. The leather construction also makes the boots waterproof and heat resistant.

The steel caps offer impact protection, with the folding metatarsal protection that protects the upper part of the feet. The rubber outsole is corrugated for added bumper protection and is slip, heat, oil and abrasion-resistant.

Timberland PRO 40000 Review

These Timberland 40000 are really comfortable and robust shoes. These boots are similar in design to the Timberland 53530, but have a 6-inch shaft instead of 8-inch boots for people who prefer ankle boots. Your feet and toes are protected from falling objects with a folding metatarsal guard and a steel cap. The sole is made of synthetic material and has a rubber sole that is corrugated and non-slip, resistant to heat, oil and abrasion. The sole is also quite stiff, which is perfect if you want something firm. There’s a nice 1.5-inch heel at the back of the boot and a steel axle 6 inches from the arch for added support. The only surprising thing is that despite all this steel, they are surprisingly light and cannot be transported.

Timberland wants to offer comfort and uses the asymmetrical shield design to follow the natural shape of the foot with a contoured insole so you can wear it longer.

These boots are very durable and should last a long time when welding. They are made from Ever-Guard leather, one of the best abrasion-resistant leathers. In addition, the seam is flame retardant made of Kevlar to further protect it from sparks. These are solid boots.

An integrated steel shaft and anatomically shaped insole support your feet for added comfort. Asymmetric mead protectors also follow the shape of your feet to allow more flexibility without stiffening your ankles or feet.

The following video shows the Timberland PRO 40000 Met Guard Steel Toe boots.

Cons
