Make Sure You Have CSA Safety

Dress, athletic whatever shoe you buy for safety, make sure you buy safety shoes with the green patch.

Fitting Shoes

The best way to fit a safety shoe is to remove the liner because remember you can’t feel your toes because of the toe cap! Remove the liner of the shoe and step on it and when you step on it make sure you have at least one thumb width at the end of the toes so that you can see that that’s a good fit for you.

More Tips On Choosing The Right Safety Shoes:

  • When you’re trying on or choosing safety shoes or boots, always try and wear the type of socks you’ll be wearing during your work. Different socks can be of different thicknesses, so to gain an accurate idea of how the boot or shoe will feel when you’re wearing them at work; you need to have the same type of sock on.
  • When you’re trying on shoes or boots, remember to lace them up properly. Doing the laces up properly helps them fit better and reduce the chance of your foot sliding down inside the shoe or boot when you start working. Although you may feel self conscious when trying on shoes, it’s best to walk around in them for a few minutes and see how they feel.
  • The best time to shop for safety footwear is at the end of the day after you have been on your feet all day. This will ensure that the footwear will fit you when your feet are at their largest volume. If you have wide feet, be sure to choose a wide fitting safety shoe in a 2E or 3E width. Try to keep at least a ½ inch of space from the end of your longest toe to the end of the shoe.
  • Don’t forget to make a note of the size, type and brand of shoe or boot you end up with. Although they should last for a good while and provide plenty of wear, when you need a new pair it will make life a lot easier if you know exactly what size, make and model you had last time.
