Men's Safety Toe Sneakers
Boot World’s Men’s Safety Toe Sneaker
When you think of a safety or work shoe, chances are the first image that comes to mind is a classic steel toe construction boot. For years, the standard in foot protection was a heavy duty boot complete with all the bells and whistles you could possibly need—and many features you may not have needed, as well. That made classic construction boots clunky and cumbersome.
But that’s not the only kind of safety shoe on the market now.
Nowadays, you can get all the same protection from a work boot in the comfortable, functional silhouette of a tennis shoe. Steel toe tennis shoes and other safety toe sneakers are the future of rugged, flexible footwear.
Who Men’s Safety Toe Sneakers Were Made For
If you find yourself prioritizing both safety and flexibility, safety toe sneakers were made for you.
Depending on the kind of job site you’re working on, you may be required to follow safety specifications set out by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). There are several requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE), including protective footwear. While some jobs require steel toes specifically, any ASTM-rated safety toe should suffice.
The ASTM certifications required for footwear necessitate protection from three major kinds of force-related hazards:
Impact: a heavy object dropping on your foot, like a slab of marble
Puncture: a sharp object piercing your foot, like a nail or piece of glass
Compression: a slow application of force, like a tire running over your foot
In our safety sneakers, you’re well protected from all three. That protection comes primarily from the safety toe, whether it’s made of steel, alloy, or a composite alternative. Beyond these, there are additional protections for site-specific hazards, like slip reduction and electrical hazard protection.
Safety toe shoes offer all of the comfort and protection you’ll get from a work boot, plus:
Sleek styles to wear both for work and for other outdoor activities
A lighter, more flexible form for enhanced mobility
Lower price points than boots
For any and all safety shoe needs, a sneaker or tennis shoe might be your best bet.
