Abstract (en)

The invention relates to a protective cap (1) for a safety shoe or protective shoe. The cap (1) comprises a single-part, hollow body which is formed from plastic and has an insertion opening (6), which is open towards the rear, for toes of a foot to be fitted into the hollow body. The hollow body is delimited by a top wall (2) which, at the sides and front, merges into a side wall (3, 4, 5). On either side of the insertion opening, resilient means (9) are formed in the side wall for allowing deflection and/or lateral outward springing of the side wall parts located above the resilient means (9) when a force is exerted on the cap from above. The resilient means (9) may, on either side of the insertion opening, comprise a slot which extends forwards from the edge of the side wall, for example over approximately 10 mm. The plastic is in particular a polycarbonate, preferably without fibre-based reinforcing means. <IMAGE>
