WHY TUFF TOE? The answer is simple. Tuff Toe will extend the life of your boot by 3 times! In tough work environments, boot toes are usually the first thing to wear out. With Tuff Toe, you will never tear out the front of your expensive work boots again. Our ballistic grade polyurethane adhesive is the same material used by NASA. It is waterproof, and will resist punctures, chemicals and stains.

How to Apply Tuff Toe: Steps 1 and 2
1) TAPE AREA: Use masking or painters tape to define the area of coverage. 2) PREP: Use the sand paper provided to scuff the coverage surface. Proper surface preparation is critical to adhesion.

3) EQUALIZE TIP: Tuff Toe is a two-part application that comes in two conjoined tubes that mix in the applicator tip. You must equalize the tubes before application. 4) APPLY TUFF TOE: Hold the boot with your left hand (if you’re right handed) and begin on the left side. Apply slowly from the sole to top so that the material will stay thick and not run.

5) REMOVE TAPE: Immediately remove the tape. Pull carefully so that you don’t mess up the application. 6) ROTATE: Rotate the boot for 1-2 mins with the toe tip pointed down to allow the material to spread evenly and avoid runs.

7) CURE FOR 24 HOURS: Material will be 80% cured after 90 minutes, but please allow 24 hours for a full cure. IMPORTANT TIP 1: Use Comet or a deglazing chemical to prep oily boots. IMPORTANT TIP 2: Tuff Toe will dry with a glossy finish. If you prefer a matte finish, wait for 30 minutes, or until surface is slightly tacky (not sticky). Rub your finger across the Tuff Toe and the sheen will disappear.
