Air Jordan 19s safety toe

Steel or Composite: Different Types of Safety FootwearUnfortunately for me I spent close to two years working for one of the premiere Safety Shoe distributors in the USA.

My title was “Warehouse Manager”, but I certainly fitted many steel toe and safety boots on dirty straight from work laborers too. As a side effect of purchasing and accepting and processing returns on safety footwear I have inside knowledge on what brands and models hold up to their pricetags and what Air Jordan 19s Brands live Air Jordan 12s up to their Guarantees.

In Jest, I said sweaty laborers, but in fact safety shoes are worn by laboratory technicians, nuclear scientists, restaurant staff and steel workers alike.

I have a couple of pairs of Hush Puppies steel toe dress shoes that I still wear regularly. These models were traditionally worn by Plant managers and executives who worked in facilities that required all staff including office workers to wear safety shoes.

Steel or Composite Safety ShoesRegardless of whether your shoe or boot is Steel or Composite they will have the same crush and impact rating.

Steel is not stronger, but composite is slightly lighter.

ANSI Z41 = ASTM F2413

American National Standards Institute = American Society for Testing and Materials

The base standard is:

I/75 = Impact rating of 75 (foot pounds)

C/75 = Compression rating of 75 (2500 lbs. of pressure)

Composite is slightly lighter and does not set off metal detectors, although having a composite safety toe cap alone is not enough to ensure metal detector freedom. Look for a marking that indicates “Stealth” , which means no metal in eyelets, shanks or zippers.

Many nuclear facilities and labs require metal detectors at all entrances and owning a pair of stealth boots or shoes can make your day much easier. Many Airport employees are required to wear safety shoes also. Particularly security guards.

Both Converse and Skechers make safety shoes and boots that were very popular, our best sellers Jordan Pro Strong are visible to the right.

Best brand choices in this shoe are Converse, Bates, Nautilus and Skechers.

Many Stealth shoes are made in a tactical style used in military footwear, they are usually waterproof, light and have sneaker like cushioning.

An ESD (Electro Static Dissipating) or Air Jordan Future SD (Static Dissipating) shoe has two purposes.

Those who work with sensitive components, electronics, hard drives etc. The rating will clearly show voltage protection on the packaging of the shoe model (this is required) Electricians and Utility workers are candidates for these models.

Ideally, One who gets exposed to high voltages should look for EH rated shoes, Electrical Hazard

What is a MetGuard and other Safety shoe ratingsWhat is a ‘Met Guard” ie Metatarsal guard:

Sure if you drop something on your toes, you are protected, but what if it lands farther up on your foot in the unprotected area?
