Are These Shoes REALLY Indestructible?

Are These Shoes REALLY Indestructible?
in today's video we're testing out supposedly

indestructible

shoes

with a TKO our twist a lot of people have asked to see us do some tests with these

indestructible

shoes

they're called

indestructible

shoes

the website is actually

indestructible

shoes

calm I'm pretty sure and we're just going right to that here's the basic idea a lot of you wanted to see us test some supposedly

indestructible

shoes

so that's what we're going to do we've got a pair and we're gonna run them through a gauntlet including a couple of TKO our specialties we'll see how they hold up by the end well I was gonna say we're gonna test how

indestructible

these

shoes

are we're going to test some of the things they show in their advertisement and we're gonna test some things that we don't think they show in the advertisement Kali's apparently just determined to fill the studio with disgusting smelling smoke yep yep there it is right there and yeah we got a pair of these

shoes

we're gonna test them out they'd like are like bending and twisting and you're like oh I can't wait a thing and it does Bend well I mean it's bendy it twists but for some reason I just thought it looked like it was gonna be super lightweight it's not super lightweight kind of a heavy shoe you know not crazy it does have a steel toe in it and you can see that that part doesn't compress if you're trying to compare this to a work boot it's...
are these shoes really indestructible
lightweight yeah yeah especially steel toed work boots it's about a pound and a half not quite a pound yeah yeah one of the thing at all point out is that the putting them on they felt very narrow my my toes at the toe felt like they're getting squished together a little bit and that could just be that I have slightly wider feet than normal it doesn't mean that the

shoes

are like poor construction it's just I have feet that don't fit

really

well in the size that I didn't see an option for wider doesn't mean it doesn't exist I would like to also say this isn't just because only Nate wanted to try this out we ordered our

shoes

on the same day and mine haven't arrived yet it's been 14 days I think at least yeah yeah it's not quick they shipped from China mine didn't even show up with tracking numbers until like after day ten yeah the liner is very thin you think that for a shoe that's super durable they'd also be like any and extra squishy extra comfortable liner because underneath that it's metal it was like hard well yeah not metal because they've been but no not comfortable though no it's yes it varies I'd say if you wanted these as work

shoes

step one go out and buy like a nice cushion padded liner to put in your boot your shoe in the promotional video I saw they ran these things through a whole bunch of tests in there I ran them through tests solid they showed hitting him with a hammer on the steel...
are these shoes really indestructible
toe they showed stomping on some steel nails and flattening him down they showed the toes getting run over by a car they had a grinder going at the steel toe itself I think we want their torches on him at one point I think we want to try a lot of those and then we're gonna try a couple of king of random specials to see how they hold up to some unusual tests she's

really

just kind of fun oh okay so I had my my toes bent just a little bit and so they were kind of touching time so if I keep them nice and flat down it against the bottom of it Oh felt it again okay my toes weren't flat enough but if you compare that to what would happen if I were wearing these

shoes

pretty sure I know what you wanted to hurt more but this is as hard as I'm willing to test it with that we do the blowtorch oh no I don't like that at all you definitely could take a harder hit with something on a work site but I mean that was a solid hit with a hammer and when I had my toes bent a little bit I felt it I didn't

really

hurt yeah they're broken I'm not injured exactly so as a steel toe at least so far it's it's passing I am kind of curious if we could defeat it so I kind of want to take this outside so it's on concrete and just hit it like as hard as I can and see if I can get that to Bend we do have a larger valid one hot dog cut in half that's gonna represent my toes I'm just gonna put this down into the end of the shoe that's pretty good oh my...
are these shoes really indestructible
hot dogs are bouncing out but they they don't seem terribly damaged or squished or anything we've had some experiments recently where we learned that hot dogs squish pretty easily so I think if they had taken any squishing that might be a little bit that might be from the edge of the cap bending down yeah feeling it on the inside I think I have actually bent it a little bit and you can also see that I managed to cut through some of this part you actually see the steel cap right here it's probably about as good as I can do with this little hammer Callie just got the bigger hammer though all right I'll take a swing at it every go okay so good news and bad news I'm not sure which is which good news is we have some damage to the hot dogs bad news is I might have missed a little bit I don't know if I laid it right on the toe trying this again aiming for a little farther forward that felt solid I think I hit pretty well on the cap and it may have gone a little bit past but most of that was on there and it is now feeling flatter okay so one of them is even squished in there enough that it doesn't

really

want to come out it's not looking real great definitely flattered I'm curious my feet are now gonna smell like hot dogs oh so I put my foot back in there and yeah the cap is like in contact with my toes pretty much constantly but it's not so far on that I couldn't get my toes in and back out I don't think that would have fell off my...
toes but it's also possible that the steel sort of sprung down and then back up and it could have done some damage my toes but still almost certainly less damage than if that hammer had hit my toes without a steel cap on them I mean we had to cuz it's three different hammers to find one that could even begin to touch that or do damage so I am impressed I'm thinking we should test the the nail proof ability and I'm gonna start without my foot in it and just slamming the shoe down onto the nail seems to just kind of get rejected by the nail is it even putting in like I can't even tell where it's hit most I think there's one spot that looks like maybe that was where it impacted that's again not comfortable on my toes at all at the moment but oh I hate watching this did you just I mean it's not in my foot but it is in the shoe that's not the one that I torched that rubber was completely slide that out make me glad I got a tetanus shot recently okay so the nail is a right there so a single nail with direct applied pressure puncturing kind of right through now that did sort of sidewall it went off to that angle I'm gonna try and push it on again but now that I know how easily it punctured right there I'm not gonna put my foot back in it for this test ah that part of the rubber seems a lot more durable and try and move it so it's not where the steel cap might be well that's pretty much something it showed in the video they...
showed like using the shoe to kick down nails to the point that they were just flattened out but that one spot I know why that's the weak point well I'm gonna say mostly nail proof like I said I didn't have the one spot where it stabbed in but it also was off to the side enough that it didn't like my foot was even a shoe when I did that which was a little disconcerting and it did manage to stab all the way through but maybe there's more support like right under the part where your foot is and then off to the side the rubber is softer and less protected so it didn't get my foot when I actually stepped on it but yeah there you go off to the side I'm able to just sort of drive the nail right in so I think there's different parts of the sole of the shoe at a different strength I give that point to the shoe angle grinding the toe let's see what it actually takes to cut into that steel toe cap obviously if you have a good metal angle grinder I think we're gonna be able to get through it but I think tip the idea is that if you're cutting and you slip and hit your foot so yeah maybe just maybe just bounce and hit it a few times not too hard to say don't break the blade but just like and then if that doesn't get through it then let's see how long it

really

takes to cut through you can see like you use yeah very much cut right into the cloth force again if you were to drop it yes I think that is like the true test because...
that's in my experience is you know it's maybe you got your foot braced up against something you finally cut through and it just but I mean okay sure it cut through the fabric looks fine yep your toad be unaffected by that all right so now just going slow see if you can actually get through that steel let's see well you cut into it absolutely cut into it which is to be expected I mean the Steel's not invincible and that's designed to cut through steel that's what this is for but the bounce test which i think is a good test you didn't even come close to getting through you concentrated effort yes several seconds of actually like purposefully trying to do that that's not something you're going to do in the workplace I figure at this point this shoe has been just about tested to death so we can open it up a little bit and there we go there's our steel cap which we have definitely deformed and bent down quite a bit if you have to put that much force onto something it

really

seems like that point somebody's trying to break your foot so yes you can't get through it yes you can dent it not with the normal amount of force that you're going okay accident and check this out so I just started cutting down farther and farther into the shoe so yeah there's some rubber but there's another place reinforced plate right here you step on the nail on the right spot off the side but also if you check out the shape of this so...
you've got the steel toe cap and it comes up and under which is sort of lining up with this so off to the side farther back but not where most of your foot is yeah is where it gets a little bit vulnerable but we have liquid nitrogen of course and we're gonna see what it does to our shoe I'm actually mostly curious about the rubber because rubber when it freezes loses a lot of its flexibility so I'm kinda wondering if soaking it in this and then just hitting it with a hammer will make the rubber break let that sit in there until it stops bubbling it's only got like the front maybe this much of the rubber is covered right now I think but that should be a good test I think we'll let that sit we'll pull it out quack it with a hammer and see how the rubber is holding up keep hitting it right there at the very toe yeah all right you can definitely get through the rubber Wow liquid nitrogen as much as I love this torch I think the foundry is gonna be better well it's throwing a shoe that warmed up right quick yeah if we can get it to balance in a crucible there we go all of the synthetic cloth yep just melting and burning away we're no longer adding fuel she was nicely on fire as is the inside of our foundry it's probably still wearable I think so well guys that's it for these

shoes

and today's video but you know we've always got more for you see hit that box up at the top to check out our most recent video and we'll see you...
the next one daki then
