Impact testing determines the amount of protection to the toe under various foot pounds of force. Compression testing determines the amount of static pressure a steel/composite toe cap can withstand. Our boots are I75/C75
Footwear is built with nail-free construction to help insulate you from the ground to slow down conduction, but is not intended to be primary protection against electric shock. Leather footwear must be dry. Our electrical hazard boots meet and exceed ASTM electrical hazard standards.
Footwear offering metatarsal protection is designed to prevent or reduce injuries when the toe and metatarsal areas of the foot are exposed to "drop" hazards. Metatarsal protection safety shoes may be constructed with either internal or external metatarsal guards.
Michelin® safety shoes are made with high quality rubber outsoles combining both excellent slip resistant and wear qualities.
A key comfort feature of the XPX781 is its contoured removable orthotic TPU insole that is excellent for those seeking arch support. The polyurethane material used in its insole is known for its cushioning while not bottoming out features. The rigid TPU material helps provide underfoot support in the arch area.
In addition to meeting the highest ASTM F2413-05 Impact & Compression standards, the Michelin® XPX781 work boot also has an ASTM F2413-05 compliant metatarsal guard helping provide extra protection to the instep area along with the toes.
XPX781 also complies with ASTM F2413-05 Electrical Hazard standards. This type of work boot is made with insulating bottoms providing secondary electrical hazard protection to those areas dealing with open circuits under dry conditions, but also can be worn in work areas requiring only basic protective toe work boots.

ComfortableThe best boot I've worn at work. They handle the heat of a steel mill and provide excellent traction. I recommended these to all of my employees. The top eyelet cuts the shoe string do I bought Kevlar string for around $5 and it solved the problem.

ComfortI find them comfortable but have issues with the laces . The eyelets in the top of the metatarsal seem to be cutting the laces therefore i have to keep tying them together . Also i dont why they went to round laces vs flat the round ones come undone all the time unless you double tie them .

Buy stock in laces!I bought these boots April 2016, I had made it a point to always carry extra laces in my lunch box. I swear a lace breaks once a week on me. I have checked for metal burrs, there are none. I don't pull hard on the Laces but yet, snap every time! I will never buy these again!
