When it comes to work boots, meeting ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards is crucial for ensuring safety on the job. These standards vary depending on the specific job requirements, but some common features include:

  • Safety toes, such as the composite toe used in many Hoss Boots
  • Electrical hazard protection, which meets ASTM standards of 18,000 volts
  • ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection to prevent damage to sensitive electronic equipment

Other important features that may be required for certain jobs include:

  • Puncture-resistant plates, like the Kevlar puncture plate used in some Hoss Boots models
  • Waterproof membranes to keep feet dry in wet conditions

When choosing work boots, it’s important to understand the ASTM standards and features required for your specific job to ensure maximum safety and protection.
