STEEL TOE Steel Toe Safety Toe Cap meets ASTM F2413-11 I/75 C/75 Standards to protect the user from injury as a result of falling and/or rolling objects.
METATARSAL GUARD Metatarsal Guard meets the ASTM F2413-11 Standard. Metatarsal guards provide protection to the metatarsal bones behind the toes or the “top of the foot”.
PUNCTURE RESISTANT Puncture Resistant Midsole meets the F2413-11 PR Standard to prevent sharp objects from penetrating the sole of the shoe. This Puncture Resistant Midsole is built into the shoe and is not removable. It should not be confused with a “steel shank” which is only designed to add extra support to the arch area of the shoe/boot.
ELECTRICAL HAZARD Soling material meets ASTM F2413-11 EH Standards to provide a barrier to protect the wearer from open electrical currents up to 600 volts. The type of Safety Toe Cap Material used in the footwear does not affect the EH rating.
WATERPROOF Waterproof footwear is constructed to keep the feet dry and comfortable in wet conditions. The most common waterproofing technique is the use of a lightweight, breathable membrane built right into the liner of the shoe or boot.
