Nine years ago we identified a clear need within the safety boot market to offer great quality and value in safety footwear. Through extensive research, development and many hours of testing and trials, the Blacksmith workboot was evolved.

Since the market introduction in 2009, the Blacksmith workboot range has been offering Tradies a very affordable and durable safety boot option that complies with the AS/NZS2210.3:2009 safety footwear standards.

Over the years, the range has adapted to market requirements, with the introduction of wheat nubuck uppers, zip sided options and light weight hiker style soles, whilst still maintaining its core elastic sided and lace-up styles, at a starting price of $39.

More recently, Tradies are demanding a much greater level of comfort from their boots, which many have on their feet for over 10 hours each day. Tradies also want greater levels of durability so they don’t have to keep going back to the shops to replace them. Because of this we have completed the development of the Blacksmith Premium range of safety boots.

There are 7 new styles offering various features and benefits, but all of them offering improved comfort and durability. We have 3 Convenient Zip-sided styles, 2 Lightweight Hiker styles and 2 traditional elastic sided styles.

Blacksmith Workboots now offer Tradies 13 styles to choose from. We are very confident that we have a boot to fit most people’s needs. With pricing that starts at $39 and with the Ultimate Premium style costing $99, we are also confident we have a boot to fit your budget.

Blacksmith Workboots are exclusive to BigW and available nationally across our 200 stores and online at
