I don't think so.....only those ones with little green tags are steel toe....or the old work dress/ DEU boots

No, they are not steel shanked. Unless you see a CSA green triangle on them, they are not safety boots.
It's not insubordinate if you know exactly where the line is and walk on it but never cross it.

I heard they may have cardboard in them. Well that is what rumor control says. Beats me.

steel shank is not steel toed or steel caped.
The shank sits between the leather upper and the rubber sole.

and yes, there is a steel shank
Chimo!
