Caterpillar Shoes: Men's Steel Toe 90152 EH Goodyear Welt Work Shoes
If you're looking for protective footwear that won't weigh you down, look no further. This pair of Caterpillar 90152 Men's Black Kaufman EH Steel Toe Work Shoes offers the same safety features as a work boot in a low-profile design with less weight.
Combining durability of work boots with athletic-shoe comfort, this Kaufman shoes are made with a full-grain leather and mesh upper. Full-grain leather is extremely water-resistant, durable, and supportive. Because of its strength, full-grain leather is used primarily in footwear designed for extended trips, heavy loads, and hard terrain. In addition, leather can absorb up to 30% of its weight in water vapor and still feel dry. Used in combination with leather, mesh is a lightweight, opened woven textile construction. The material provides maximum ventilation and a foot-cooling system to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day while wearing these steel toe shoes. The inside of these men's shoes is also lined with nylon mesh for additional cool comfort.
An Ortholite footbed will soften your steps when you're walking. This open-cell polyurethane base foam enables air to travel through and around the insole of these EH shoes to create a cooler environment inside. OrthoLite foams offer up to 95-100% breathability for maximum ventilation in and around the foot. The footbed also includes a microbial foam layer for odor control, wicking away moisture to keep the foot cool and dry.
The dual-density EVA midsole of these Caterpillar shoes is soft, light, and flexible. EVA is a durable plastic foam material that provides good cushioning and offers shock-absorption and energy return. With dual-density EVA, you get twice the mass in the same amount of space, resulting in a stronger, firmer and heavier material.
Compliant with ASTM F2413-11 I/75 C/75 EH safety standards, these safety toe shoes will keep you protected on the job. The steel toe cap, inserted between the outside leather and the lining, is able to endure up to 75 lbs. of impact and 2500 pounds of compression. This will protect your feet when walking in rough terrain or if a heavy object should come crashing down on your toes.
For further protection, these black shoes are also EH-rated to provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection against open circuits up to 600 volts. EH-rated footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock-resistant soles and heels, offering protection when coming into contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts, or apparatus under dry conditions.
Catepillar's patented iTechnology is also featured to offer the rugged durability you expect from Cat footwear and the all-day comfort you demand when you wear these Goodyear Welt shoes. The midfoot stability feature provides torsional control, while the patented Techniflex woven membrane provides maximum flexibility and comfort.
The rubber outsole of these work shoes is very durable and will help to keep you steady on many surfaces. It offers superior slip-, puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC. The material will also resist bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble. In addition, rubber has excellent low temperature properties, allowing it to stay supple in cold temperatures when you wear these Kaufman shoes.
For durability, Goodyear Welt Construction is used to assemble these Caterpillar shoes. The upper fabric, lining, and sole are stitched together to create a single unit for added strength. Goodyear Welt products are known worldwide as a superior method of footwear construction. They're not only extremely tough, but also provide excellent traction. As long as the upper remains sound, you can easily have the worn-down outsole completely replaced to give them a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
When you have to endure hazards at your job, protect your feet with these Caterpillar 90152 Men's Black Kaufman EH Steel Toe Work Shoes. You'll look and feel great and, best of all, you'll have the protection you need to stay safe on the job.
