Carolina's Metatarsal protective boots, or "Met Guards" for short, are work boots that have additional, crucial protection that is layered over the tops of your feet. More specifically, to protect the are of the foot with your 5 Metatarsal Bones that run the length of the top of your feet from your ankles right down to your toes. "Met Guards" are strategically placed directly over the delicate instep of your feet, preventing the crushing of your Metatarsal bones in potentially hazardous work environments.
"Met Guards" are required in jobs where there is a specific, potential risk of compression injuries from heavy objects that can drop, or roll, onto the top of your feet. These guards also protect your feet from burns, making them must-have work boots for Welders.
