Constructed using no metal material or parts. Perfect for working environments that require passing through metal detectors.
Built with an outsole design and materials that help provide slip-resistance and traction on various surfaces.

Is this waterproof? I checked the box, but It doesn't have anything in the description.
Asked by: Sparkjr
THE NEW BALANCE 589V1 MEN'S COMPOSITE TOE ELECTRICAL HAZARD ATHLETIC WORK SHOE STYLE: MID589G1 is not a waterproof style. For future reference any shoe or boot that is waterproof would have it listed in the features and would also have a blue rain drop emblem with the initials WP inside it under the features tab.
