how to remove composite toe from work boot


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  I have a pair of new Thorogood Emperor boots I bought for a good price.  They have a composite toe that I'd like to remove.  I need a bit more room for my right foot toes.  Assuming I can get the soles separated and into the area with the toe, what kind of adhesive is used to attach the toe to the leather and how should it be removed?

LOL.  I wish I could.  I have some problem in my right foot where if I have some side pressure on my toes, it gives as sensation like tendons binding and giving with every step, and it feels wierd enough that I can't seem to ever forget about it.  Removing the composite toe will give me just that extra room, but yes, it looks like a PITA. 

Sucks having these great boots that never get worn though....

Are they not able to be stretched?

not if its the toe box rick or if they are steel toe caps ,judging by what he says it sounds as if the toe box has a steel or polymer toecap , that being the case the sole needs lifting upper peeled back to remove it then relasted 

Can be done, but wouldn't recommend a d.i.y.er attempting it.
