Abstract Taking into account differences in lengths, widths and shapes of feet a new shoe tree for safety shoes has been designed. Measurements yielded feet lengths between 247mm and 300mm and at least four widths (8, 9, 10 and 11 according to Mondopoint). From these lengths and widths, 32 different combinations were obtained to serve as shoe sizes for safety footwear.
