I'm looking to get a pair of Danner Desert Acadias but I'm concerned about the puncture resistant steel insert. The soles are Vibram, are they safe for electrical work?

Sorry for the late response, and for kicking an old subject back to top.

I have a pair of Danner Acadia, black. Cannot recall if they are EH rated (Electrical Hazzard).

I have a pair of Matterhorn (Cove Shoe Co.) 10 in. Deluxe leather with composite safety toe. They are EH rated, and I believe that they have a steel shank. I believe their standard Deluxe non-safety toe have the same rating.

I know that Red Wing Shoes makes a wide selection of work boots that have the EH rating.

I wear my Danners for hiking, hunting, walking, recreation.

My Matterhorns are for work, with their insulation and safety toes, though they are so comfortable, I have worn them hunting. BEST boots I have ever worn.

Though, my Danners are awesome, too.

Was disappointed with the Red Wings I had, though. Maybe didn't fit right, but, their reputation is for comfort and durability. They seemed well made, but were not as comfortable as my Matterhorns or Danners. (12+ hours in my Matterhorns, felt like soft pillows still, good support, but, after 6 hours in the Red Wings, I was ready to go home).

This is in no way knocking Red Wing Shoes' boots, just my personal experience. As I said, maybe not a correct fit, every company may size differently.
