Explanation:
you can add "reinforced toe" but i don't think it's necessary. Besides the whole boot is sometimes reinforced!

I think you have to include the 'steel toe/tipped' part. The greatest danger, probably, for stevedore feet, is something crushing their toes. Also the use of 'casquillo' would require this element to be included.

HARD-TOE SHOE


Explanation:
The reason for this word is that stevedores wear shoes with a hard protective metal covering that protects their toes in case something falls on them. Thus: hard toe+ shoe.

steel-toed boots


Explanation:
This was the most common term when I wore them, but I´ve also seen "steel-toed safety boots," and "Steel-reinforced boots," (as I think someone else came close to suggesting).
