Steel toe boots

I was wondering what place or brand to look for if I want to use it in a shop work environment, something not so bulky but looks kinda like sneakers or thin high tops.

Thanks everyone !

Go to Walmart they have a huge selection and they have them in different categories as well... ie. warehouse, outdoor, construction and so on... They have exactly what your looking for.

Berz out.

^ +1.

RW boots will last (almost) a lifetime if you keep them well maintained.

Marks has decent selection...

I would go w/ Terra's provided you don't mind replacing them annually or bi-annualy (I had a steel toe allowance so I got replacements every yr anyways)... they are great, especially for the runner type steel toes but if its a shop environment, they may last longer... I was working in a whse environment and was constantly running around a large whse.

I picked up a pair from Mark's Work Wearhouse. Prices were good to, the last time I was at the store.

Have you tried this place? I have no personal experience but I always see it whenever I go to CIBC bank or visit my friend in King ED village.

They have so many boots.

I get my boots from Marks. They have a good return policy and a decent selection. Personally I like timberlands, though they may not look like "shoes", they are hella light and give some ankle protection as well.
