At Beier Safety Footwear, we manufacture a broad range of safety footwear suitable for a variety
of working environments. Our range includes, SISI – our brand of ladies' safety footwear designed
specifically to fit a woman's smaller, narrow feet.We understand women face enough challenges

designer from Milan to develop our range. But there is much more to our footwear than just looks.
All the best features you would expect in any leading mens’ safety footwear, you’ll find in Sisi
The old saying, “If you can walk on it, it’s not broken.” simply isn’t true. There are different types of
fractures and some you won’t necessarily notice at first, but if ignored, it can lead to conditions
that are far more serious. Failing to treat foot injuries can become a risk to your long-term health
and productivity, especially if you spend all day on your feet.
Some long-term effects of untreated foot injuries are:
Foot deformity which can limit mobility in your foot or make finding correct fitting footwear difficult
Arthritis caused by a fracture in a joint
Failure to heal can lead to surgery and chronic pain
The structure of the human foot is incredibly complex. Almost a quarter of all the bones in your
body are in your feet. There are 26 bones, 33 joints, over 100 muscles, tendons and other soft
tissue in one foot. Nineteen of those bones are toe and metatarsal bones, the long skinny bones
in the mid-foot.

Foot bone fractures or breaks fall into two categories:
Traumatic or Acute fracture
These are breaks caused by a direct blow or impact, like when you stub your toe, or drop
something heavy onto your foot. Traumatic fractures can be displaced or dislocated, depending
on how the bone breaks and if it changes position.
Signs and symptoms you may have a traumatic fracture are:
You hear a snap at the time of injury
Acute pain at the place of impact that lasts for several hours
Crooked or abnormal appearance of toes
Bruising and swelling
These are usually hairline breaks caused by repetitive stress. Wearing improper footwear leads to
stress fractures. These types of injuries are common in athletes, when they rapidly increase the
distances they cover. Stress fractures are not to be ignored if they’re to heal correctly.
Signs and symptoms you have a stress fracture are:
Pain during and after normal activity
Pain that dissipates when resting but returns when you stand or walk
Swelling without any visible bruising
