Rocky Brands Inc. is recalling 6,800 pairs of Georgia Boot steel-toed work shoes. When compressed, the steel toe cap in the shoes can fail to protect the wearer's feet.

The recalled shoes are six-inch tall, brown leather, steel-toed shoes with dark brown padding at the ankles sold under the Georgia Boot brand name. On the outward side, the boots have a tag with the words 'Met-Guard' at the stitching and the Georgia Boot logo near the heel. A white label on inside of the tongue of the recalled boots have the Georgia Boot logo, the product number 'G9075' on the left side, a date code between 01-12 and 10-13 in the MM-YY format on the right side, and the words 'Men's Georgia Metatarsal 6" Brown.'

The steel-toed work shoes affected by this recall were sold at retail stores and online from January 2012 through November 2013.

Consumers should stop wearing the recalled shoes immediately and contact Rocky Brands for a free pair of replacement steel-toed shoes in a similar style.
