The problem

Workwear Group have recalled its Hard Yakka Hero Boots as the toe caps may not pass the required impact tests. If a heavy item falls on the boots, the toe caps may not protect your feet properly.


Hero Boots (style 3056) were sold between 30 September 2015 to 9 May 2016 from the Hard Yakka store in Albany, Auckland.

The styles and sizes affected are:

  • Wheat Nubuck (Y60063)
  • Black Nubuck (Y60064)
  • EU sizes 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50.

What to do

Stop using your boots and return them to the Hard Yakka store for a full refund.
