Caterpillar Shoes: Men's 90294 Steel Toe EH Nubuck Leather Work Shoes
If you want a lightweight option in protective footwear, try getting a pair of these Caterpillar Men's 90294 Brown Switch Nubuck Leather Steel Toe EH Shoes. Meeting ASTM F2413-11 I/75 C/75 electrical hazard safety standards, they look and feel like athletic shoes, but come with all of the safety features, durability, and comfort you want to stay safe and comfortable on the job.
Steel toe caps are inserted between the outside leather and the linings of these Caterpillar shoes, protecting your feet from heavy falling objects and rough terrain. As a result, these steel toe shoes can endure up to 75 lbs. of impact and 2500 pounds of compression.
For additional protection, they also provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection when coming into contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts, or apparatus. EH-rated footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock-resistant soles and heels to offer protection against open circuits up to 600 volts under dry conditions when you wear these safety toe boots.
The uppers are made with a combination of Nubuck leather and nylon mesh to provide the durability and comfort you need. Nubuck is an "effect" done to the grain side of the leather which makes it incredibly soft. The surface of these men's shoes has been brushed to create a texture similar to a velvet on leather. This process will also make the leather more absorbent than Aniline leather. Used in combination with leather, nylon mesh is a lightweight, opened woven textile construction. The material provides these black shoes with maximum ventilation and a foot-cooling system to keep you cool and comfortable all day long. The inside of the CAT footwear is also lined with nylon mesh for even more comfort.
Soft, light, and flexible, dual-density EVA midsoles provide cushioning when you're on your feet all day. These sculpted midsoles provide superior motion control and support, while also absorbing shock and returning energy when you wear these Caterpillar shoes. The durable plastic foam material is doubled to make it stronger, firmer, and heavier to provide long-lasting comfort. For even more comfort, Nylex and molded EVA sock liners allows air to circulate inside these slip-resistant shoes to keep your feet cool when temperatures rise.
The T1000 rubber outsoles with SRX (extreme slip-resistant) technology on the bottom of Caterpillar's oxford shoes will provide superior grip when you need it. Unique rubber compounding and tread patterns provide the best-in-class performance. While high-traction materials provide superior slip-resistance, the ladder-grip technology will help you to grasp uneven surfaces. As a result, SRX outperforms the competition and exceeds industry standards for slip-testing. The technology also features FlexTech for superior flexibility, along with an anti-bacterial insole that keeps feet fresh and healthy when you wear these work shoes.
To attach this rubber outsoles to the uppers, Strobel and cement construction are utilized. Stitched Strobel construction creates flexibility, while cement construction uses an adhesive to create a weather-resistant seal. Combining these two types of construction creates a more stable bond.
Part of the Ergolite collection, this men's footwear's ergonomic design supports natural body movement to reduce fatigue and provide all-day comfort. The contoured footbeds of these Caterpillar shoes are breathable, shock-absorbent, and shaped to fit your feet for comfort and protection. Meanwhile, the foam collars cradle your feet around the ankle bones to provide cushioning during motion. In addition, the sculpted design creates arch support, heel cushioning, and comfort to keep you feeling great throughout the day.
If you want the protection of work boots but prefer something less bulky, order yourself a pair of Caterpillar Men's 90294 Black Switch EH Oxford Steel Toe Shoes. Get the protection you need with the comfort you deserve.
