    Hello, can anyone help me with this term, 'botas con casquillos'? I thought maybe it might mean 'steel toe boots' , but I saw in the forums that this translates to 'puntos de acero'.

    Gracias por su ayuda.

    I think this may well be a Mexican way of describing steel toecapped boots.

    I found this on the net
    "Protección para los pies: Se recomienda el uso de zapatos de seguridad de hule con casquillos internos de acero para los trabajadores que manejan tambores y garrafones con ácido sulfúrico. "
