Your feet possess some of the smallest bones of the body, making them among the more vulnerable parts of your body. Therefore, you should always be aware of potential foot injuries throughout your day. This is especially true with certain occupations. Different industries and job responsibilities expose individuals to unique sets of dangers and potential injuries. One of the best ways you can be on constant guard and protect your feet is with the help of safety shoes.

If you work in a commercial kitchen or under generally wet conditions, then you’ll want to look into shoes that feature thick rubber soles. Some of the most common workplace accidents are slips and falls caused by slipper surfaces, and rubber soles will help you maintain a solid grip on wet surfaces. You should look for shoes that have a lot of surface area to prevent hydroplaning. You should also look for rubber molding on the sides of the shoes as well to get as much area of coverage as possible.

For those of you who work construction, you should definitely look into steel-toed boots. These boots will provide essential protection against dropped materials and sharp objects through the use of steel reinforcements. Leather work boots provide the ultimate in comfort, protection, and durability.

Regardless of the industry you’re in, you should also look for boots that feature high-ankle support. Shoes that feature material that reaches to at least a quarter of the calf should provide much needed support. And those that feature additional ribbing along the length of the upper section will provide the optimal amount of support.
