The MET-GUARD features superior impact protection higher up the foot area.
Most workers enjoy the protection of safety toe caps; either steel or the composite. However, higher up - in the metatarsal area (where the metatarsal bones are found) – this part of the foot can also require protection in certain circumstances. For that reason some Steel Blue styles feature a Metatarsal Guard to reduce the risk of injury from impact in this area. The Metatarsal Guard affords extra protection without sacrificing our complete level of everyday comfort.
