How do you fix uncomfortable steel toe boots? Change up the Insoles
Getting a thinner or thicker insole can help out too. A thicker insole can help fill up the space if your boots are too loose. A thinner one can free up some room if you find that there’s too much pressure around the toe cap.
How do I stop my steel toe boots from hurting my toes? –Make sure the boot is laced snug. This will pull your foot back away from the toe and keep your foot from sliding forward. -Adding some padding can help, especially if the edge feels sharp or rough. We use an adhesive felt tongue pad, cut into strips and stick the strips to to the inside edge of the steel toe.

Why do my feet hurt with steel toe boots? The shoes encourage unhealthy proprioception that exerts unnatural and excessive pressure on the feet. In the long run, this can lead to developing complications in the feet that lead to persistent sharp pain and discomfort.
How long does it take to break in steel toe boots? New boots can take around 80 to 100 hours to break in. That being said, don’t subject yourself to wearing your boots for 4 days straight and expect your feet to be happy with you. Instead, space this time out to about 2 to 3 hours a day and keep a second pair of boots to change into.
