"Thongs, open type sandals or shoes, canvas type shoes and/or gym boots, shall not be worn in practical classes where there is a possibility of injury through spillage of hot liquids, metals, or the dropping of heavy or sharp instruments, tools etc. While it is not possible to specify any one standard to meet all situations, fully enclosed shoes with a stout sole and firm leather uppers with a leather tongue are considered necessary".
