Iron Age Work Boots: No Longer a Thing of the Past

Iron Age Work Boots

Iron Age Work Boots Will Be Available In 2012

It was an exciting time. Optimistic, really. The worst war the world had ever seen had finally ended, the enemy defeated. More than four million American men returned home with goals and dreams and a drive to succeed. To build those dreams with sweat on their brow and determination in their hearts and work boots on their feet. It was 1918. And those work boots were Iron Age work boots.

Iron Age Boots was the very first branded “safety-toe” footwear. The first Iron Age Boots debuted in 1918, after the end of World War I. These brave American men had risked their lives on the battlefield, and they certainly weren’t about to risk a toe on the job site wearing a pair of soft toe work boots. So they turned to this new brand of work boots to keep them safe. They trusted Iron Age’s new “steel toe technology.” And several generations later, American men, and now women, are still trusting Iron Age Boots today. Continue Reading…

Sole Construction for Safety Footwear

Sole Construction WPS Blog

There are over 800 known ways to make a shoe, but most are variations of a few basic methods or constructions.  The term sole construction is simply the method used to attach the sole to the upper of safety footwear.

The most common constructions for safety footwear are:

Goodyear Welt Construction: This method is considered the traditional construction for sturdy, well-made footwear. It is used almost exclusively on better shoes and most men’s shoes. Goodyear Welt Construction uses an insole with a wall or rib that is positioned close to the edge of the insole. During lasting, the upper is secured to this wall. The welt is then sewn in and attaches to the wall of the insole. The sole is then positioned with an adhesive to the shoe bottom and is stitched through the welt. This creates an indirect attachment since the sole is not directly attached to the upper. This is among the most labor intensive methods of shoemaking, and thus the most expensive.

Why Wear Safety Footwear?

Safety Footwear

Protective, safety footwear is essential to ensure safe and healthy feet. Steel toe boots and shoes protect your feet, help prevent injuries to them, and reduce the severity of injuries that may occur in the workplace. According to the National Safety Council, only one out of four victims of job-related foot injury wear any type of safety shoes or boots. The remaining three are unaware of the benefits of protective footwear. Today’s safety footwear is comfortable, flexible, and stylish and provides necessary protection from injury. The foot is the most valuable part of your body subjected to injury in industry.
