Hard Facts About Soft Toe Footwear
Soft toe work boots and slip resistant shoes do not have a steel or composite toe integrated into their constructions. Instead, they have a soft toe design. Such toe box styles are often reinforced with leather, rubber, or other durable materials. For example, KEEN soft toe work boots include KEEN.PROTECT, a soft toe design that shields against minor impacts. You'll find this unique design on KEEN San Jose soft toe work boots and other styles from this brand.
Electrical Hazard and Static Dissipative Protection
Many men's soft toe work boots contain some sort of protection against electrical shock and static buildup. This protection comes in two different formats: Electrical Hazard and Electrostatic Dissipative. EH footwear specifically insulates wearers from the ground to avoid shock from downed wires, exposed circuits, and similar dangers. Conversely, ESD footwear channels static electricity through the outsole and other materials to avoid static electricity accumulation and discharge.
At Rogan's Shoes, we stock a large collection of EH- and ESD-rated footwear. Carhartt soft toe work boots with EH protection include popular styles like the 6-Inch Waterproof Wedge Boot and the CMW6174. Most EH-rated work boots have non-metallic constructions to minimize shock risk. Specific electrical hazard protection guidelines can vary, but applicable standards include ASTM F2892-18 and ASTM F2413. Each standard has unique requirements — for instance, ASTM F2413 EH shock-resistant footwear must withstand 18,000 volts at 60 Hz for one minute. More popular in low cut styles such as the Keen Detroit XT and Atlanta Cool 2, many manufacturers offer ESD versions of soft toe work shoes. ESD footwear have their own standards to meet such as ASTM F2892-18 SD 35 or ASTM F2592-11 SD.
The Right Traction: Non-Slip and Outdoor Soft Toe Styles
Many mens soft toe work boots and shoes integrate non-slip outsoles to avoid slip-and-fall injuries on the job. Nearly every brand in our safety footwear inventory includes slip resistant shoes for men. Trusted brands such as Skechers Work, Genuine Grip, and Reebok Work have plenty of styles specifically designed with slip resistant traction.
Outdoor work requires a completely different type of outsole, and several of our brands offer a selection as well. Rocky is an excellent example. Known for its long-wearing hunting, hiking, and winter boots, the brand's safety work boots are equally durable and deliver top-notch performance during a long day's work. Styles from Rocky such as the Rams Horn boots offer oil- and slip-resistant lug outsoles that accompany comfort-focused technologies. Rocky Rebound Comfort uses energy-returning cushioning to absorb shock and EnergyBed LX memory foam footbeds conform to the shape of your feet. Rocky is also known for its waterproof soft toe work boots, especially with Rocky's Vapor Pass waterproof membrane that forms a moisture barrier while letting sweat evaporate.
