Coastal Boot offers the Grinder and Grinder Steel Toe lightweight, durable and flexible work boots. This boot is a fraction of the weight of a traditional work boot while still providing the protection needed by the end-user.

The C/B line was inspired by the needs of today’s auto technician. Today’s tech does not want to wear in the shop that same shoe/boot that their Father wore. They want something lighter, faster and more comfortable than Dad’s boot while still supplying the protection needed in a shop environment.
