    Question Leather Work Boot Question

    Anyone ever heard of or have any information on a boot called:

    RAINIER
    Style: R-2275

    It is being sold locally here and marketed as an "approved" boot. The sales invoice says "safety toe"... After inspection, it appears to me to be some sort of composite toe...not steel. Additionally, the boot came with no information in the box and there is no tag or marking in it except the "size." I laughed when I saw the invoice hab been photo-copied and included in the photo copy a label that was for a MAGNUM HI-Tech with a "steel toe." Yet there is no marking on the boot...not even a name!

    I find this very strange and if anyone has information you can reply here or by using my EMAIL Link.

    Thanks

    A quick Google Search for Rainier Boot turned up the following:

    4110 Currin Rainier Lineman

    The hard toe is made of new technology, composite material that contains no steel. this "steel toe" without steel creates a lighter boot with less heat build up and no corrosion to age the leather.

    10" Lineman
    Composite toe: ANSI MI/75 C/75
    Electrical hazard
    7-8 oz black oil tanned leather
    Cambrelle vamp lining & cushion Poron insole
    1 piece Vibram sole
    Non-metallic safety toe and climbing shank
    Leather wrapped arch support with scuff pad
    Goodyear welt & triple stitching in wear areas

    I got Zero results when I added in the style number.
