what a load of marlarky, anything heavy enough to damage or sever a foot under a steel toe would have totally destroyed it without one.
Here from ANSI, Safety toes are rated at 2500 psi. That's per square inch, No horse will ever crush one, Misconceptions
- Testing has proven that a compliant steel toe is much safer than the alternative. The misconception that extreme weights will cause the steel toe to crush and amputate the wearers toes is categorically false. The weight required to crush a steel toe would also easily crush an unprotected foot, effectively amputating the toes. In most cases, the engineering of the steel toe causes the impact force to be redirected.
