What standards do they comply with?

The additional marking of safety shoes, including the HI marking, are described in the standard UNI EN ISO 20345, in table 18.

HI Safety shoes are submitted to a specific test at 150ºC. During the test the temperature increase of the inner surface of the sole must not be higher than 22ºC. After the test the footwear must show no signs of damage such that it can’t be used normally anymore, or that its performances are compromised. The footwear must be so made that the insulating materials can’t be removed.

Robert Frog
I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems. Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort. During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes. Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
