Metatarsal boots provide protection for the foot, including the metatarsal bones, and are an ideal choice for hazardous work sites.
When making your selection, consider that:
- You can choose steel toe boots or composite toe boots.
- You should choose metatarsal boots that meet ASTM Standards F2412-05 and ASTM Standards 2413-05.
- If you need the highest level of protection, you may want to consider work boots with puncture resistant outsoles for added bottom layer protection.
Choose static dissipative shoes if you work in electronic component manufacturing or a similar field.
If you work in electronic assembly, you don’t want sparks of static electricity to damage the chips you’re assembling or the equipment you use. Wearing static dissipative shoes allows the electricity to flow between you and the ground and they also provide a measure of electrical insulation.
If you’re an electrician, ask about electrical hazard shoes that help insulate you from the ground.
