Work footwear is available in many forms and has unique features and materials designed for specific occupations and uses. Leather boots with steel toes can protect your feet. Some boots with varying degrees of traction are also available. The American Association of Medical Podiatry offers a guide that outlines the specific occupational hazards of wearing work footwear.
