Nitti Australia introduces a new range of external metatarsal guards for their complete line of safety shoes.
Metatarsal guards are plates that are built-in or attached to safety shoes to provide extra protection at the vamp of the shoe. Made specifically to protect metatarsal bones in the wearer’s foot, external metatarsal guards are targeted at industries such as mining and foundries but can be used by everyone for enhanced safety.
External metatarsal guards from Nitti Safety Footwear are made from composite materials, and are lightweight, strong and airport-friendly.
External guards allow more flexibility than built-in metatarsal guards as one can choose the optimal safety shoes from Nitti's extensive range and add on the metatarsal protection.
External metatarsal guards are attached to the shoe using the laces of the shoe or with plastic straps for shoes and boots that come without laces. The guards can be attached and detached at will to suit extra protection requirements.
