Did you know that there are 26 bones in the foot? To put that into perspective, that equates to around 25% of all bones in the human body!
Naturally, breaking any of them can be a painful mistake and one you may want to avoid – particularly if you work in an environment that requires you to be active and on your feet.
Avoid the agony of the feet by checking out our wide range of safety footwear, engineered for protection and specifically designed to keep you on your toes.
Types of safety footwear
Working in an environment that includes a variety of hazards can pose many risks to the human body. With so many dangerous possibilities around the corner, defence is undoubtedly the best form of attack.
If you’re a serious professional that works in an environment involving heavy machinery, heavy lifting or heavy materials, you need the right gear for the task at hand (or the task afoot)!
Luckily, that’s where we come in! Our safety footwear comes equipped with a few key attributes that are tailor-made to keep you footloose and fancy-free.
These safety features include:
If static shock is problematic at your workplace, anti-static boots can be a reassuring safety net to have beneath your feet.
A static charge can trigger a spark, fire or even an explosion, particularly if your work involves dealing with volatile materials. Luckily, our anti-static safety boots prevent a build-up of static in the human body by sending these charges to the ground.
A great addition to your everyday gear, anti-static work boots will help keep your workday buzzing without any nasty shocks.
When your dogs are barking, there’s no better feeling than peeling off your shoes and letting them puppies loose to soak up the air and breathe. Sadly, over the course of a long working day, most workers aren’t afforded that luxury.
If you’re on your feet all day, the pain of being up and on the go for hours at a time can take its toll. Enter the shock absorber!
Designed to dissipate the kinetic energy that enters your body with each step, these cushioned wonders reduce the impact between the foot and the ground. Many of our products also feature energy absorbing heels to further reduce foot fatigue, keeping you marching on strong until quitting time.
For those that work with fuel and oil, a slippery surface can pose a dangerous hazard and quickly turn a mistimed step into misfortune. Even the slightest spill could spell disaster, especially if you’re not wearing the correct footwear.
That’s exactly why we’ve given many of our boots fuel/oil resistant soles to keep your feet firmly on the ground, even in the face of a greasy surface. Get a grip and give oil spills the slip with the power of oil resistant boots!
Steel toe caps
A true staple of any manual labour or warehouse environment, where would we be without the iconic steel toe cap boot? Tried and tested, it’s a must for anyone working with heavy goods, tools or apparatus.
With a reinforced toe to protect the foot from compression, these classics have become standard issue for many manual workers across the globe – and rightfully so.
With the power to save your feet from disaster, these metallic marvels are the Iron Man of the shoe industry. Tell your Nikes to take a hike – cap it off and feel the steel!
So, what are you waiting for? Keep your feet safe from the perils of work and the pitfalls of play with our handy selection of safety footwear!
