Puma continues to be our most popular brand for women’s shoes here at SafetyGirl. They collectively receive the highest ratings on our site. Therefore we are always waiting for them to come out with new product so you are the first to get it. We want to feature a new pair this week that we just recently added to the mix!
NEW PUMA SAFETY Celerity Knit Steel Toe Athletic Shoe
These neutral grey & black athletic shoes are great to wear everyday no matter what outfit you choose along with them. They are great for working or running! The steel safety cap will keep your feet protected while the waffle design BreathActive Lining controls odor and increases comfort for all day wear. They are slip and oil resistant and therefore great for any industry you put them in. The rubber outsole is also heat resistant up to 300 degrees F. You can choose to keep the Evercushion Insole inside the shoe or remove it for extra room. TPU protection (hard plastic & silicone mixture) is both in the toe and heel for added protection. This helps to absorb shock when walking or running. They are ASTM & SD Rated.
We also have the men’s version on our sister site, Construction Gear, for that special someone in your life! Check them out here.
Let’s all take a moment to appreciate that right now we have more women than men enrolling in college. In fact, as of 2012, women enrolling in college is 10% more than men! LETS GO GIRLS, we may truly run the world as Beyonce once said. As most of you know, Hillary Clinton became the first woman to run to be president of the United States. Whether or not you supported her, you can still appreciate that she was strong and willing to take on that role. Speaking of Hillary,
**The U.S. Ranks 97th of 187 Countries on Women’s Legislative Representation**
Women are more than half of the US’ population but only 19% of House Reps are women. That doesn’t seem like a lot but we are growing.
But let’s get back to education. With more women enrolling in college, they are also seeking more careers that men dominated.
**Lawyers: 12.4% were Women in 1980, 36% are women today.**
How cool is that? When you watch lawyer or criminal justice shows…most have a sassy female lead. Its great and entertaining. But its also happening in real life! We still have some way to go though…36/64 is not 50/50. We’re working on it though!
**Women now earning degrees in bioscience about EQUAL men**
YES! Our attention to detail and the finite things in education is needed in this field!
But here is a bummer…
**In 2016, women earned 81.8% of what men earned on a weekly basis**
It’s better than it used to be but this is just simply not OK. We have the SAME education and dedication. On the positive side, a lot of people are fighting for equality in pay and we haven’t given up quite yet. Let’s not be too negative.
We just have to keep educating and reminding one another of the amazing people we are. SafetyGirl is proud of you and the work you do everyday.

Talk about girl power…this organization needs some recognition! The NAWIC was founded in 1953 by sixteen construction workers who just happened to be women. They understood that the amount of women in the construction business was declining, so why not make it special club and recognize more strong women. Their core purpose is to “enhance the success of women in the construction industry.” It is basically a support network. They give their participants really cool opportunities such as professional development, education, networking, leadership training, and public service.
If you become a member, you can be nominated for special rewards such as a lifetime achievement award for being active in this special group, member of the year award and future leader of the year. They then have an annual meeting every year to announce the winners.
There is a code of professionalism you must follow such as believing in their core values: belief in yourself as a woman, perseverance and daring to move into new horizons. That doesn’t seem so bad. It actually seems refreshing to be appreciated so much by such a great organization.
There are international affiliates, also. the NAWIC has connections with Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK. All of these countries and places around the world also have their own NAWIC program.
You can find a chapter near you by simply searching your zip code on the site. For example we searched chapters near us in New Stanton, PA and there is one in Pittsburgh, PA!
Construction workers work hard, long days and the only people that can understand are other construction workers. So go ahead…vent, you can sign up right on their page!

One of our most purchased and highest rated products are the Safety Girl Steel Toe Work Boots. They are extremely durable and have a water resistant nubuck upper.

The outsole is oil resistant, too so go ahead and get dirty! They are available in black, pink, and tan.
“In combination with some decent work socks, these boots work wonders. I work as a Kennel Tech (with dogs) and I never slip or slide while walking dogs and doing tasks about the facility. These boots stay dry when wet on the outside. highly recommend” says Len, a Safety Girl reviewer.
Next, are the Safety Girl Navigator Safety Glasses. They have a polycarbonate lens and frame for durability. They are UV safe and scratch resistant. They also meet ANSI and CE ratings! There are so many options for lens color (amber, blue mirror, clear, gray) and frame color (pink or red). That gives you eight mix and match choices. Most importantly, they are less than $2 per pair! Super stylish and affordable.
“They’re so comfortable and lightweight that I forget I’m wearing them. Will definitely buy again, as I’d like to have a couple extra pair in case my current ones get lost or to just carry an extra pair in my gun case. Thanks for such a cool product at such a reasonable price!” says Linda, a Safety Girl customer.
