Learn More About Us!



When Summit Safety Shoes was founded in 2001 we realized shopping for safety footwear was not something many folks found to be an exciting activity.  After all... how “exciting” can safety shoes really be?

Since then we have made changing this perception one of our primary goals! By assembling an extensive selection of high quality safety footwear in our retail and online stores that is functional, comfortable AND stylish, we hope to make your safety shoe shopping experience considerably more exciting AND enjoyable.

Our On-Site Shoe Stores on Wheels (Shoemobiles) can bring this safety footwear  “excitement” right to your place of work, providing a level or convenience, selection, expertise and personalized service unmatched by most local stores.

Let us help take the “boredom” out of our safety footwear shopping experience by visiting our Retail and Online Stores or requesting a visit by one of our On-Site Shoemobiles.  We truly look forward to helping you find the best safety shoes or boots for your feet and your job!
