||Thanks to technological progress, it is now possible to manufacture safety shoes that are very similar in appearance to regular shoes while maintaining their protection characteristics. Following a brief overview of the main elements of the shoe that provide protection and a reference to sectors of activity where the wearing of safety shoes is essential, this article goes on to describe the various tests that safety shoes have to undergo, including: raw material tests (leather, laces, textile materials, soles, safety toe tips); tests during manufacture (soles) and tests on the finished shoe.
