Blundstone Boots: Men's 971 Steel Toe Met Guard FR Heat Resistant Smelter Boots
Most kids wanted to go to the beach and play in the sand. You wanted to go to a volcano and play in the lava. Now you're all grown up and your day job means you get to do the next best thing--work with molten metal. You're a smelter. And for safety's sake you need a pair of incredibly tough, specialized work boots. You need a pair of these Blundstone 971 Men's Black Met Guard Steel Toe Smelter Boots.
First and foremost, these smelter boots have been designed and tested to provide maximum protection and safety. To combat serious heat, you need serious protection. In addition to being made from flame-retardant leather, these steel toe boots also feature an ultra-tough, flame-retardant scratchguard toe. You'll keep the flames at bay.
The non-intrusive metatarsal guard of these Blundstone boots protects the tops of your feet from liquid metal splash and non-liquid heavy impact. These FR boots also have a galosh-cut upper for minimal seam exposure. Stitching is done with Kevlar, the same material in bulletproof vests, for maximum strength and protection against metal splash and immersion.
An additional heat-battling feature is the compression-resistant Softherm 8-point fiber upper of these met guard boots. This specially-designed fiber has a unique 8-leg (or point) cross section that has numerous advantages over standard round fibers. For smelters, the most important of these features is how it insulates against radiant heat, helping you stay cool despite the heat and pressure of your job.
Blundstone isn't guessing about the safety performance of these smelter boots. Not only do they stand behind their product with a two-year warranty (replacing or repairing boots with any manufacturer defect), but these heat-resistant boots have also been dip-tested to 1760 degrees Fahrenheit in molten aluminum and 2768 degrees Fahrenheit in molten steel. These smelter boots are made for people who work with fire. They'll help keep you safe.
They'll also keep you comfortable so you can focus on the task at hand rather than being annoyed by aching feet. A padded collar adds cushioning and the adjustable Velcro securing straps allow for individual comfort and fit when you wear these Blundstone boots. Once you get them fitting just right, you'll notice the removable luxury polyurethane footbed featuring arch support and the revolutionary Poron XRD material in the heel strike zone.
Not only is this footbed anti-bacterial, breathable, and washable because it features Poron, it offers long-lasting lightweight cushioning and outstanding shock absorption too. Poron wicks moisture, reduces odor, and is even inherently flame-retardant. You couldn't ask for a better footbed in a pair of smelter boots. The low-density, shock-absorbing polyurethane midsole also supports and cushions your feet. Rounding out the interior construction is a steel shank that improves torsional stability.
We've covered a lot of features, but what about the outsoles? Not only are they flame-resistant up to 580 degrees, these outsoles have excellent cut-resistance. Not only will you be safe from molten metal and flames, this flame-resistant footwear will also stand up to more insidious assaults. They're hydrolysis- and microbial attack-resistant so they'll last for a long time. They're also oil-, acid-, organic fat-, and organic oil-resistant, so you can step into some truly nasty situations without worrying about your work footwear. And to make sure you stay on your feet regardless of surface, they're also slip-resistant.
Two final safety features: A steel toe cap meets ASTM 2413-11 standards for impact and Electrical Hazards, so you can stay safe from shocks and drops on the job and the full heel breast with arch support increases safety on ladders and gantries so you can climb fearlessly.
If you're working as a smelter, you need a pair of these Blundstone 971 Men's Black Met Guard Steel Toe Smelter Boots.
