COMPOSITE TOE / NANO TOE
Compared to their steel toe counterparts the composite toes are manufactured using lightweight materials to make the shoe weigh less while meeting ASTM standards. These shoes meet ASTM F2413-18 I/C 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 F2413-18 EH standards.
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.

Light and Durable
I have had these boots for 2 years now. I am walking on concrete all day long and put in a minimum of 12K steps per work day. I had to replace the insoles twice due to the amount of walking, but my feet stay comfortable.OverallComfortArch Support: Excellent arch supportSize: Felt true to sizeWidth: Felt true to width
Sturdy and Reliable
Durable, great work shoes. Not fully waterproof, but resistant enough unless your walking in a creek. Heavier than other boots, but I am a fan of the feel of them, and they have lasted me almost 2 years wearing them 5-6 days a week all day.OverallComfortArch Support: Moderate arch supportSize: Felt true to sizeWidth: Felt true to width
I like them
Have worn them for a year and find them high quality. Am surprised by other reviewers comment although they are a bit heavy. The quality is so much higher then a similar styled keen, which were peeling and falling apart after this amount of time. I was actually in the process of ordering a new pair when I saw the review so I'd thought I'd comment because I really like them. The stiffness is an asset walking over broken terrain and the waterproof membrane still works. They don't feel like sneakers but I find them a quality boot with good comfort and support. The weight is a little heavier then some sneaker styles but for a safety shoe I have been very satisfied and would look at other styles from this brand as well based on the build quality. Your mileage may vary as the saying goes but this is a long term review.OverallComfortArch Support: Excellent arch supportSize: Felt true to sizeWidth: Felt true to width
I could've zip-tied 2x4's to my feet and been more comfortable. My biggest gripe is that they are so stiff, there is no flex at all. Too narrow in the front, too wide in the back. They are also incredibly heavy.
I will be returning them forthwith.OverallComfortArch Support: Minimal arch supportSize: Felt a half size smaller than markedWidth: Felt narrower than marked
