STEEL SAFETY TOE
In 1995 OSHA began enforcing a new standard for personal protective equipment. As part of this standard employers now require ASTM F2413-11 rated safety footwear in areas where employees are exposed to injuy as a result of falling or rolling objects. All steel toe boots with this icon meet or exceed ASTM F2413-11 I/75 C/75 standards.
The soles of EH shoes provide a barrier to protect employees from open electrical currents up to 600 volts. EH shoes are often needed in maintenance, welding and engineering positions. All styles marked with the “EH” icon in this catalog meet the ASTM F2413-11 EH standard.
These shoes feature outsoles that resist high heat to create a more durable work boot.
Waterproof boots and shoes are constructed to keep the feet dry and comfortable in wet conditions. Waterproof construction requires continuous maintenance and is not guaranteed to remain for the life of the shoe.
Slip resistant safety footwear is the fastest growing segment of the safety footwear industry. For many employers with wet, oily, and/or greasy floors, it is common sense to require slip resistant safety footwear. Slip related injuries can be extremely costly. No shoe is slip proof, however employers who require slip resistant shoes can reduce worker’s compensation claims.

I bought these boots because they seemed well made and we're waterproof. I have now owned them for a year and a half and can attest they are very durable and comfortable. They held up to over a year of railroad maintenance work. The only drawback I have is after a year leaks started to occur so the waterproof was good but not great. These are very good, high-quality boots.OverallComfortArch Support: Moderate arch supportSize: Felt true to sizeWidth: Felt true to width
