If you like the comfort of an athletic shoe but need the full protection of a metatarsal guard boot, the 17202 is a perfect fit. Very few athletic shoes offer this kind of full protection, the 17202 features Poron® XRD™ technology. Poron® XRD™ provides a soft, flexible fit. When struck, the material instantly absorbs shock dissipating 90% of the energy. After impact, the guard returns to its soft, flexible state letting you return to work and keeping you safe and protected for the rest of the day and for the life of the shoe. The 17202 has a navy badland leather upper with blue accents, a high abrasion performance mesh lining, a removable EVA Pesu III footbed, a lightweight EVA cushion midsole and an oil and slip resistant rubber outsole. Electrical Hazard Protection, Steel Toe.
