  • Never buy 2nd hand.
  1. Never buy 2nd hand safety shoes because you don't know what the actual condition is.

  3. Always remember to replace your shoes if there are any signs of damage to the toe protection part or the midsole.

Soles wear out depending on the wearer's gait, so by wearing someone else's shoes, you will affect your own footprints and balance. This can potentially lead to gradual damage to most joints in your body. The back, hips, knees, ankles, and feet all require correct alignment to stay healthy.
