As much as we would like to say you don’t need to spend a lot of money for safety boots, we can’t in good conscience If you want a safety boot with all the bells and whistles on, you need to spend a pretty penny. However, if you are looking for a pair of safety boots that will give you value, comfort and protection for a very reasonable price, then you should look no further than the boots we will be reviewing on this page. Portwest are a world leading brand for a reason. They make good, reliable work wear and this pair of Portwest Mens Steelite Mid Cut Nubuck SB safety shoes is no different.

About Portwest

Portwest, though you may not have realised it, have in excess of 100 years experience and a background of making high quality goods that offer real value for money. With over 100 years of experience and a heritage of quality, value and service, Portwest is firmly established as a world leader in the design and manufacturer of stylish, comfortable, high-quality work wear that meets recognised international standards.

They have been successful throughout the years by listening to their customers and improving their products where they could to address their needs. The Steelite Nubuck are testament to that, so let’s take a closer look at them.

Safety Features

The main safety feature these boots have is their heat resistant out-sole. As Portwest is a company that particularly specialises in flame-resistant work wear and work boots, it’s no surprise. The sole is not especially slip resistant, but does lack a hell so will feel more balanced and it has a normal grip sole.

Waterproofing And Insulation

Apart from the above protection against heat, these safety boots are not any more or less waterproof or water resistant than the average full grain leather boots. If you are looking for boots that will protect you in lots of puddles and rainy weather, then you may want to look elsewhere.


Given that we have established that they are full grain leather boots, judging by what customers have said about them (more on that further down and in greater detail) they are a very comfortable pair of safety boots. The soft synthetic inner sole provides a comforting base for your feet, while the laces mean you can adjust it to suit your preferences and requirements.


The Portwest Steelite boots are constructed from attractive and rugged looking nubuck full grain leather and come in three different colours, brown, black and honey. They are very stylish and even if you were not intending to use them as work boots, you would not look out of place wearing them anywhere else. Portwest have been making safety clothing and footwear for a long time and their experience shows in the clean looking and very subtle design of these boots.

Customer Opinion

As always it’s good to look at just what other customers who have used or, in this case, worn a product. Out of the 92 reviews submitted to Amazon, 54 people awarded it the highest rating of 5 stars, giving it an average score of 4.3 out of 5 stars. Customers were especially pleased with the fit and level of comfort they got from these boots. Many commented that unlike other boots, there was no digging at the back of the heel and that they even accommodated people with wider feet.

Taking all of the above into consideration and the price, it is hard to fault these boots, especially if you are looking for comfortable, heat resistant boots that have been made with high quality materials and by a company who knows what they are doing.
