Shield shoes and ankles from sparks, spatter, and heat to help prevent burns and fires. Spats cover the tops of footwear and extend above the ankle to provide a layer of protection in welding and metalworking environments. They are lock stitched with Kevlar thread that maintains strength at high temperatures to keep seams intact. Seams and stress points are reinforced for durability. These chaps have straps that fasten onto the bottom of shoes and the back of the legs for a secure hold. Select from various heights to get the coverage you need.
