After getting multiple requests from our female reader base we decided to put together a list of the top 5 women’s work boots. Finding the right work boots that are comfortable and stylish while offering support and ruggedness to protect your feet can be difficult at times, especially when trying to find something within your price range that were actually made for a woman. Since we don’t have a woman on staff (at the moment), we resorted to researching multiple construction forums and other review sites on the web. After reading days and days worth of reviews from other female blue-collared workers, here are the top 5 work boots for women, rated by customers just like you.
Sitting at the top of the list in the Top 5 Women’s Work Boots category is the Carolina Women’s Work Logger Boot.

Caterpillar has been a name brand in the construction industry for many years, making work equipment and gear that is worth every penny when your safety matters. The Carlie Steel toe Women’s boots come in Dark brown leather with a rubber sole and steel shank to protect your toes from injury. The Carlie offers the toughness you desire with the sports shoe comfort.
The rubber sole offers a moderate heel with soft rubber for maximum comfort throughout the day as well as providing protection against open circuits up to 600 volts in dry conditions. Although they are not quite as aggressive as the #1 or #2 choice, they are a great deal for on the job safety.
The biggest drawback of the Carlie’s is the ankle top instead of full protection offered with other boots.
#4 Caterpillar Women’s Lander Boots
Another great choice from Caterpillar is the landers boots that offer a bit more protection for the leg, but at the cost of a bit heavier boot. The Peanut brown leather is an excellent choice when ankle boots do not offer enough protection.
