High or low safety boot?

Why do I need a steel toecap?
A steel toecap protects your toes from heavy falling or rolling objects.

Why do I need an anti-penetration mid-sole (steel or synthetics mid-sole)?
A steel mid-sole in the boot provides protection from the penetration of sharp or hot objects through the outsole. Bata also has boots with a synthetic (Armour Layer) anti-penetration mid-sole. This is used as an alternative to steel, it is much lighter, more flexible and offers better insulation. Both materials are tested and certified to pass the Australian standards.
