Safety Tennis Shoes have rapidly become a preferred safety shoe for professionals required to wear safety footwear. There are many workplaces where safety shoes are a requirement, but many of those same environments don’t require the rigors of a classic steel-toed work boot.
In an indoor environment, for example, where physical labor is more intermittent, safety tennis shoes offer an alternative to the traditional work boot. Safety tennis shoes offer the comfort and support of a standard athletic shoe but with the required (and necessary) safety toe that you would find in a steel toe boot.
In order to understand what "safety tennis shoes" are, we must first establish the broader definition of "safety toe shoes". Put simply, a safety toe shoe is any shoe that has a toe cap rigid enough to protect your toes from potential harm and a shoe that meets the latest ASTM standards.
It used to be that only steel-toed boots were considered safety shoes, but as technology has improved, more shoes are now safety certified. Technologies like carbon fiber, nano-web, composite and alloy, are used in shoes to create a suitable safety toe. These types of technological advancements have led to the modern safety tennis shoe. In basic terms, safety tennis shoes are tennis shoes with a certified safety toe.
When deciding which safety tennis shoe is best for you, things like fit, style, shape, and even brand will all play a part in your decision. You may even consider looking at slip-resistant shoes for women and men that look like tennis shoes but are built for slippery environments and come with safety toe caps. When shopping at Boot World, you can be certain that whichever safety tennis shoe you choose is made with superior craftsmanship and certified to protect your feet while on the job.
