Electrical boots are a type of safety footwear specially designed to provide additional protection from electrical shock to workers who may come in contact with live circuits, wires or highly charged electrical equipment. Electrical boots are lined with insulating materials and have a compression resistant cap toe to withstand high impact, puncture or compression. The soles on electrical boots feature insulating properties that meet ANSI standards for stopping an electrical current from being grounded for a certain length of time.
The word motorcycle describes a style of leather boot generally associated with bikers and the aesthetics of the motorcycling culture. Motorcycle boots are designed to provide protection. The typical motorcycle boots have long shafts and are generally made of thick, heavy leather with low heels and an adjustable leather strap or a harness across the ankle. Motorcycle boots may also include styles fashioned after the aesthetics of the motorcycle style but not necessarily intended for the activity of motorcycle riding.
