I was wondering if anyone knew of a style of safety shoe (steel toe) that is similar to any kind of barefoot shoe. I must wear safety shoes at work, I value my toes, they have saved them on many ocassions. But almost all safety shoes have a large heel and are very thick. Is there anything out there more like a minimalist safety shoe, if there even is such a thing. Or would that defeat the purpose of a safety shoe. thanks.
