Mister Safety Shoes has one mission — to remove the obstacles to safety for workers and their employers. The Toronto-based company achieves this through a customizable managed safety footwear solution, a large fleet of mobile stores, a 24-hour online store and a network of retail stores. Its slogan, “Making it easy to be safe”, captures the company’s commitment to its customers perfectly.
The inspiration for Mister Safety Shoes came from co-founder Frank Colantonio. As a recent immigrant to Canada, he witnessed a preventable death of a co-worker on a job site. From then on, he dedicated himself to workplace safety and became an advocate for workers. In 1972, Frank founded Mister Safety Shoes (known then as Safety Shoes and Equipment Centre), with his wife, Nella.
Thanks to Frank’s vision, Mister Safety Shoes has been a trusted footwear expert for more than 40 years. Today, the company carries a large selection of safety footwear, insoles and accessories, high visibility workwear and personal protective equipment to ensure the complete safety and comfort of its customers in the workplace.
“We take workplace safety seriously, and we are proud to provide work boots that combine unsurpassed safety, comfort and style to provide you with the very best work boots possible,” says John Colantonio, managing director of Mister Safety Shoes.
Ideal for a wide range of industries, including construction, industrial, service, warehouse and distribution, pharmaceutical, institutional and manufacturing environments, the company offers Canadian workers superior features, fit and quality. With its lineup of specialized safety footwear — from athletics and casual shoes to heavy-duty work boots, metatarsal protective footwear, winter boots and uniform and duty footwear for both men and women — the company is ready to meet its customers’ specific needs.
Mister Safety Shoes operates 16 retail store locations in Ontario and Alberta, as well as 16 convenient “Shoemobile” trucks that bring the company’s extensive safety shoe, insole and work boot showroom to employees on site. In addition, the company’s website features a full online catalogue and footwear guide to help customers find the best work boots, workwear and personal protective equipment to meet their unique needs and preferences.
