Both steel toe and aluminum toe shoes meet or exceed the ASTM standards for impact and compression testing of I-75/C75. The main difference between steel toe and aluminum toe shoes is the weight. Aluminum toe shoes are lighter than steel toe shoes.

Is there a test to determine something is stainless steel and not aluminum?

Use a magnet. Magnets stick to steel but don't stick to aluminum. Stainless is very weakly magnetic at best. Best to identify aluminum from stainless by weight (aluminum is much lighter) or by hardness (aluminum is much softer; scratches more easily). ***************** Though magnet test can show the difference between magnetic steel and aluminum, it cannot show the difference between non-magnetic steel and aluminum. In this case you can tell the difference by 1. weight , since aluminum has density 2700 kg/m3 and steel (magnetic or not) 7500 2. hardness, using a knife or something similar, since aluminum is softer than steel
