Important Information

These boots contain pads of cut and puncture-retardant material designed to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the parts of the foot covered by the pads in the event of contact with a rotating chain. In some contacts, the pads may stop the chain. In other contacts, the pads will resist the cutting process only for a fraction of a second. The actual degree of protection afforded will vary with the speed of the chain at the time of contact, the power of the saw and similar factors. Severe personal injury can result from contact with the chain of your chainsaw despite use of these boots. These boots are not intended to be a substitute for good safety procedures in the use of your chainsaw. If the protective pads of these boots are damaged or cut, the cut-retardant qualities of the padsmay be eliminated. Once the protective pads are cut or damaged, these boots should no longer be used as protective clothing.

The fibers will not stop the sprocket on most electric chainsaws because of their constant high torque.

WARNING! Improper use of any power tool may cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow carefully the operating and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.

STIHL products sold through U.S. STIHL Dealers are for distribution in the United States only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boots surpass all others These Boots are amazing, in 25 plus years of buying all the big names in work boots ( and being disappointed time and time again ) I bought a pair of the Stihl forestry boots.The boots are very well constructed, high quality leather is used, Vibram soles are comfortable, Gore Tex and water proofing are a few more great features.I dont think they are heavy or too bulky, it took about a week to break them in. These are so comfortable I wear them almost day, I never did that with any other brand, ever.The orange laces take a little getting used to, very bright even after getting dirty, but the reason they used them ( my guess at least) is to help make your feet more visible while cutting in the woods or backyard.These boots are great for any outdoor work, if you are looking for a new pair of work boots, Stihl has the answer for you!
