There is an advantage to steel toed from a defense point of view. However, for long walks they aren't the most practical things out there.
tbh, it all depends on which ones you get as well.
if you pay the $200-$300 for a good pair, they are quite comfortale to walk in.
however not a pleasure to swim with. i know weird to say right? but im an avid cliff jumper (into water) and one must wear the proper foot equipment while climbing back up.

also, watch them steel toes as well, if you drop something too heavy, it could bend the steel and cut off your toes. ive never seen this happen, but ive heard of a few cases.

me personally, i favor the Dr. Martins.

I have had my timberlands for about two years now. I don't think I would wear any other boots.
