How a Pair of Timberland Steel Toe Boots Saved Jason's Toes

How a Pair of Timberland Steel Toe Boots Saved Jason's Toes

When Jason woken up on Sunday, he never expected that he was going to have a serious accident that almost severed his toes.



On November 15, 2015 Jason was going about his day as usual when the unthinkable happened. His foot was ran over by a 3000 lbs. cart filled with stage decks. He was rushed into the ER where they removed his boots and treated his wounds. 


The result? 3 sprained toes and 6 stiches. Jason won’t be able to walk for a few days, but after all of that he is truly grateful. Why you ask? Because he was wearing Timberland Pro Steel Toe boots, which helped save his toes. 

"The injury I sustained would have been much worse if I hadn't been wearing my TIMBERLAND PRO BOOTS!" 

While the injury he had to endure was still a serious one, the results would have been much worse had he not been wearing his safety toe boots. Had he been wearing regular boots or sneakers his toes would have been completely destroyed.

Check with your boss to see what type of safety wear you’ll need to have for your job site and make sure to always be cautious.
