Safety shoes can protect your feet in a work environment, and some may also have extra support pads, heel caps, and anti-wear caps. While not present in all cases, they should be considered, especially if you are operating heavy machinery with your feet.

Here is the content list:

  • Materials of different parts of safety shoes

  • Choosing the right shoe size is also important

Materials of different parts of safety shoes

1) Toe wraps.

Although they are often referred to as steel-wrapped toes, this is not the case. Sometimes, the reinforced toe in safety boots and safety shoes can be made of composite materials, plastics such as TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), or even aluminum.

Since all safety boots are used for different purposes, the minimum requirements for the toe vary from boot to boot. Regardless of this and the materials used in them, and protective toe should withstand an impact of at least 100 joules in a drop test.

2) Uppers.

Most safety shoes are made with smooth or brushed leather uppers, rather than man-made materials. Some safety shoes are also made from textile or synthetic uppers, such as microsuede, which are much more breathable and therefore work well in hot conditions, but leather is a more stable material and therefore better able to withstand harsh weather and hazards.

3) Lining

Since the lining is in direct contact with the foot, it is important that it is made of a breathable material, wicks moisture, and dries quickly. Most linings in safety boots are made of materials such as cotton, wool or leather, or temperature-regulated textile composites, as all of these have these qualities.

4) Insoles

Insoles are designed to provide protection and comfort for the feet, and with this in mind, most safety shoes have insoles made from non-woven materials such as leather or wool. These materials are durable, absorb moisture effectively and dry quickly, making them ideal for insoles.

5) Outsole

The outsole of safety shoes is usually made of polyurethane, TPU, or rubber. All of these materials have different properties, so it is important to consider this when choosing the right safety shoe for you.

Choosing the right shoe size is also important

In this article, I would like to talk about the difference between US sizing and Asian sizing.

1. The US size is mainly used in the US and Canada. It is also very similar to the UK size. Generally speaking, US size 9 is equivalent to UK size 8 and is also equivalent to European size 42. Similar to UK half sizes, US sizes also come in half sizes. Another difference is that American sizes are available in men's and women's sizes. For example, women's size 7 means men's size 6, one size smaller.

2. Asian sizes are mainly used in China, Japan, Korea, etc. The size difference is 5CM, not 6.67CM. so we should order one size smaller than European sizes. For example, Asian size 265 is more similar to European size 42, not 43.

When choosing a safety shoe size, as we said at the beginning, protecting the toe of the shoe will give you less space inside the shoe. We recommend that people order one or half sizes larger to avoid the toe pain caused by steel toe or composite toe wraps. For example, if you live in the United States and your sneakers or leather shoes are a size 8, we recommend that you purchase a size 8.5 or 9 safety shoe or work boot. If you are a woman, please purchase women's safety shoes in size 9 or 9.5.
