JB Goodhue - FAQ


Are JB Goodhue lace-to-toe work boot designs better than other designs?

Lace-to-toe boots are a boot style that laces from the top of the boot to almost the toe. This is a popular style for workers and outdoor enthusiasts and is often preferred by those that spend time on their feet for a few different reasons. The main reason is that they allow for a tighter fit, especially for those with wider feet, which can help prevent foot fatigue, blisters and corns. They also make it easier to pair the boots with heavy-duty socks, which are needed to protect and warm the feet, and lace-to-toe boots also provide better support for the foot and ankle. This can be incredibly important when walking on uneven terrain. If you spend a lot of time on your feet and walking on a variety of surfaces, lace-to-toe work boot designs are often the better choice over other boot styles.
