Composite-Toe shoes provide a reinforced toe to protect from falling objects, punctures from below, electric shock and other workplace hazards by using Kevlar, plastic, carbon fiber, fiberglass or any other strong, non-metal materials.
Take a look at these Argon Oxford Work Shoes by CAT. They have the athletic shoe look and feel with the added composite safety toe. The extreme slip resistant outsole allows for high performance protection in the work place. These have had proven success in the men's shoe line, and now CAT has sized it down and reconstructed it to fit the women's foot exactly and comfortably.
