At Nigro’s, we know a little something about boots.

Not only has Nigro’s been selling the best in boots for over 75 years, we take pride in wearing boots ourselves. As a busy family business, we know what it’s like to put in a hard day’s work – and we know which shoes will make or break our feet while we’re on the job.

We know how to keep our feet on the ground – and we also know how to kick up our heels with the best of them. We know there’s a boot for every person, every age, every background, and every occasion. We know which boots are for play, which boots are for show, and which boots are made for working, and for getting most any kind of job we can think of done – and done well.

Work boots are built to handle some of the most demanding jobs out there. Boots like these have to be durable enough for the toughest of jobs – and long-lasting, because no one who works for a living wants a boot that quits on a job before the whole job is through. Quality work boots must be thick and protective – and especially able to keep the wearer safe from a heavy falling object or an unexpected sharp puncture. A good work boot needs to provide reinforcement and stability for those working the longest of hours while also offering a flexible, comfortable fit.

Work Boots For Every Job

There are work boots for true cowboys and those who work a job site – who work hard through the wettest, coldest, and muddiest conditions. Ranchers and farmers alike understand the importance of boots that protect feet from the sharpest of tools, the most stubborn machinery, and the heaviest of hooves. And construction workers, delivery drivers, firefighters and police officers all understand the importance of  the most durable, and comfortable of work boots. Restaurant workers, many of whom who’ve had a tough time the last couple of years, can’t afford to miss another day of work, so they require the best of non-slip, highly protective, safety footwear.

Anyone with an active, demanding job also requires work boots that perform at the very highest caliber; boots that are crafted with the best materials by the top boot-making craftsmen. These boots must be top quality – not only to guarantee excellent protection, but also to ensure ultimate durability.

Check out Nigro’s top work boot selections chosen from our broad work boot inventory.
