Name the safety criteria I should follow
When selecting safety shoes, the Powerful Gear team encourages our customers to follow the basic safety criteria which consists of 5 unique safety features:
STEEL TOE CAP. First number in the code indicates if shoe equipped with steel toe protection. Also, it shows different degree of protection. #0 – None; #1 – Steel Toe is capable to resist only 90J; #2 – Steel Toe resists 125J and above (Note: 125J equivalent to 22.7kg object falling from a distance of 0.56m).
PUNCTURE RESISTANT SOLE. This section can be divided into two divisions: present or absent. #0 – None; “P” – Present.
SLIP RESISTANCE. This section can be divided into two divisions: present or absent. #0 – None; “1” – Present.
ELECTRIC SHOCK RESISTANCE. There are 3 main shoe electrical characteristics. “E” – Electrical shock resistant; “S” – Static Dissipative; “C” – fully conductive.

How do I choose the right size?
You can find our detailed size guide on our product page for each style. It’s located above the size selection chart. Keep in mind that all our shoes are Medium Width so if you have a wide foot please consider going a size up.
What are some safety features your shoes can offer?
We have created a special table of main features for every style, which can be found down below the “Add to cart” button.
How do you protect your packages from being damaged during transit?
We have decided to switch from a regular cardboard shoebox, that most sneakers are sold in, to the packaging made of plastic. The package, large enough to fit a pair of shoes, takes on the form of a clear bubble. Therefore, it prevents any damage to the shoe during shipping.
What is your return policy?
Please refer to our Return Policy page here.
Are your shoes waterproof?
Power Gear shoes are water and oil resistant and able to resist the penetration of water and oil to some degree. For instance, they protect against some weather conditions like rain and snow or against oil spills. Powerful Gear shoes are designed to let less water in than traditional materials, but they're not waterproof.
