Red Wing Shoes is recalling more than 114,000 pairs of work boots in the U.S. and Canada following a notice from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal reports.

According to the CPSC, the steel toe caps in the product from the nation's leading maker of work boots "could fail to protect the wearer’s feet in an impact," the Star Tribune says.

The Red Wing, Minnesota, company said about 105,000 pairs of the boots were sold in the U.S., and another 9,000 in Canada.

Red Wing Shoes says in a press release that 45 styles of the work boots sizes 11 to 18 and widths B to H are being recalled.

The boots, which cost anywhere from $185 to $340 at Red Wing stores and other outlets, were sold from October 2012 through November 2013.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the defect.

The company advises purchasers to stop wearing the boots immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a free replacement pair.

More return information is available on the Red Wing Shoes website and the CPSC website.
