I think everybody has heard about this "mystery man" that has had his toe tips cut off from steel toed boots. Yet for the past 35+ years, I've yet to physically meet a guy with that claim.
I'm sure it's happened, but a very few have also been struck by lightening. The people that have had their toes "saved" from wearing steel toed boots far out number the one or two folk that have suffered detrimental damage as a result of the steel toe insert.
