Safety toe is a feature of hazard boots and refers to a protective toe cap found on some work boots and other types of safety footwear. Safety toe caps are specially designed to protect the wearer against injuries caused by accidents such as high impact or extreme compression, which are likely to occur in industrial and construction environments. Safety toe caps are generally made of steel or a lightweight but strong composite material.
Steel is a material that comprises the front of steel toe shoes and steel toe boots. Steel is inserted in the tip of a boot and is meant to protect the foot from harm. Steel is often found in construction boots or work boots.
