In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about safety footwear with steel toecaps, to help you find the perfect product for you needs!

Among those used to produce protective toecaps, steel is the sturdiest (the others are aluminum, composite materials, carbon fiber and glass fiber). Indeed, most safety footwear for special applications, like firemen footwear, safety shoes for foundries and those with metatarsal protection, are equipped with steel toecaps.


Main features of steel toecaps:

STEEL = steel toecaps are resilient, thin and cheap. In the North European market they are very appreciated for their high level of protection, but they are rather heavy: the average weight is around 80/90g. The best application is regular jobs, whereas they are not very suitable for sport, due to the weight.

Some additional details:

  • They can withstand the pressure of a forklift weighing 4.5 tons
  • They can withstand the action of a chainsaw
  • They don’t offer good thermal insulation, as the toecap is made of metal

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.
