Work boots aren’t worth anything unless they’re both safe and comfy. Safety shoes, which are typically developed for specific scenarios, are all about characteristics that are meant to keep feet secure in a range of locations while also providing a variety of comfort elements.

Safety shoes are defined as footwear with protective features to protect the wearer from injuries caused by accidents, equipped with toe caps, designed to protect against impact when tested at an energy level of at least 200 Joules and against compression when tested at a compression load of at least 15kN.
