All of our models run a bit narrow. We suggest to getting your PROXON in a 1/2 size larger than what you typically wear. You can view our detailed size chart here.

We are currently developing a new wide last for all of our models.

All Proxon models have an almond shaped steel-toe cap that passed I75 / C75 impact & compression standards.

Yes. ASTM F2412 refers to "standard test methods for foot protection" and it outlines how a professional laboratory needs to test their shoes.

Pre-orders usually take 35 days to ship as we need to fabricate the shoes from scratch when we don't have them ready in stock. Either way there’s a chance that it takes less than expected if there is a batch on the way or that has just been fabricated and it is not yet listed on our website inventory.

Everything out of stock will appear as a pre-order.
