....Seems like composite toe caps are getting more popular than steel.

I happened to look on the US market some years ago. Near all "steel toe" boots are plastic toe. Apparently this reduces hassle going through metal detectors in airports and courtrooms. (Why you'd want steel-toe to fly or sue, I do not know.) And of course it may offer less knife-action than steel.
Nigel, you stayed in the dark for too long, I lighten your photo a bit. :)
