The Metal Foot Guards are worn over shoes to ensure maximum protection against hazards which may lead to foot and leg injuries. The metal shields keep the workers™ knees, shins, in-steps, feet, and toes safeguarded against falling or rolling objects, crushing or penetrating materials, hot, corrosive or poisonous substances, electrical hazards, static electricity, or slippery surfaces. The metal guards are designed to withstand an impact of about 75 foot pounds while being light enough to be worn around comfortably. To keep the guard properly positioned, it is supplied with a rubber toe clip, crossbar, and either a one-piece rubber strap with a tension buckle or a two-piece leather strap with a spring fastening device. The guard fits any shoe and meets ANSI standards for compression, impact, and metatarsal protection.
