One of the key technology changes allowing for lighter weight safety shoes has been the use of polyurethane outsoles on products such as the Georgia Giant Women's Steel Toe Boot. Polyurethane outsole material not only helps make lighter weight steel toe work boots, but also gives to help take some of the stress and strain away from the wearer's feet and body. Adding to the work boot comfort package is its soft tumbled upper leather. The tumbling process performed by the leather tannery helps break-up and soften the leather lessening the break-in for the wearer. In addition to meeting the highest AS F2413-05 Impact & Compression standards, it also complies with its Electrical Hazard standards.
