Steel toe cap trainers – charnwood footwear
The safety trainers which are currently obtainable on the market today are available in a wide variety of colours and styles, some brands have successfully encompassed some of the latest fashion designs available on the high street so well, in some cases you would be forgiven thinking that some of the designs where in fact for leisure use and not for work.
The construction of safety trainers can be more complex than a number of other traditional styles of safety footwear this means that when selecting your next pair you should choose a brand that uses the highest quality materials available and the latest manufacturing techniques to ensure consistent quality. As we always state with footwear you literally get what you pay for. We understand that everyone has a budget to work to but try and purchase the highest quality pair you can. This will result in you benefiting from increased wearer comfort and in majority of cases prolonged life of your safety trainers.
Traditionally Steel toe cap trainers incorporate a protective steel toe cap hence the name. The continued development of styles and more advanced components and materials has resulted in recent years the development of styles that provide fantastic safety features but now incorporate Composite toe caps instead of steel.
Composite currently has numerous benefits to the wearer over traditional steel which include weight reduction and increased wearer comfort. Other new components that have been incorporated into the latest safety trainers include extremely flexible Kevlar midsoles which protect the underside of the feet from sharp objects which may be strewn around the work site, these common hazards include nails and screws, broken glass, sharp metal objects including discarded Stanley blades and sheet metal off cuts. The great advantage of Kevlar over the more traditionally used steel midsole is the superb flexibility you get from Kevlar that you cannot get with a stiff rigid steel midsole and of course the reduced weight as Kevlar is normally lighter than steel.
