Title:
A SAFETY BOOT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/167497
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Safety boots are well known in the construction industry and other industrial settings, as providing protection to workers' feet and lower legs, and in particular to their toes. Design of such safety boots has hitherto been restricted to protecting the wearer from harm after an accident has occurred. However, the present invention seeks to prevent such accidents from occurring, thereby increasing protection of the wearer far beyond what has been achievable up to now. Traditionally safety boots are monochromatic: often black, green, brown or tan, to reflect the fact that these boots are often used in environments where they may become soiled. According to a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a safety boot, comprising: a sole (1); a substantially waterproof upper having a toe region (3); and protective reinforcement substantially adjacent to the toe region (3); wherein the upper comprises a fluorescent material (7). In this way visibility of the wearer can be enhanced, preventing accidental impacts/contact occurring with the wearer and/or their feet.
