We already have the best safety shoes on the market with outperforming slip-resistant shoes, but we decided to improve even further! We didn't invent the work shoe. We obsessed over it. Our entire collection has been re-imagined, then rebuilt, with one thing in mind: your safety.
Our shoes are now stamped with a Shield of Safety, meaning that we don’t outsource safety. We own it. You’ll know you’re safe in a glance. We have some of the best safety features in the industry; we will not only ensure your safety, but also your comfort. From bakers to catering staff to hospitality staff to medical professionals and more, we have a shoe designed with your specific needs in mind.
We developed a new approach to the shoe sole, and we have introduced a number of new technologies to help you stay safe at work: Zone Traction, Tripguard, Spillguard, Flex Treat, and Hoverlite.
1) Zone Traction
Zone Traction is specialised slip-resistant grip on the soles of the shoe. We understand every job is different so our chef shoe styles have specific traction zones that differ from waitress styles or medical industry styles. Each person in these industries walks and works differently in the workplace, so they need different zoned traction to meet their needs.
Our designs with Tripguard technology have lugs with a slight curve, making it easier for you to move from slippery surface to carpet and rugs safely. In a traditional shoe, big lugs at the front of the shoe can create a trip hazard, and since workplace safety is one of our main concerns, we designed special lugs that work with your movement. This technology works best for those in the catering industry, restaurant industry, or hospitality industry - anyone who moves between different surfaces. Take a look at our shoes with Tripguard protection.
For those in catering, restaurant, medical, laboratory, or hospitality industries, spills can be hazardous. With our Spillguard technology engineered into the linings or material overlays of our shoes, a membrane protects your forefront from hot liquids and spills. Bakers and chefs may have pots boiling over, which can be a slip hazard, but also a foot hazard! Spillguard helps protect against burns. Medical and laboratory chemical spills can be dangerous and Spillguard will offer a level of protection from those liquids too. Those in the hospitality industry may have to venture in and out of the hotel, for example, in torrential downpours so having a level of spill protection can benefit you and help you stay safe as you move in and outdoors. Check out our styles with Spillguard.
4) Flex Tread
Flex Tread works with your foot, not against it. The outsoles mimic your foot’s natural movement so your shoes are in step with you. If your shoes often give you blisters, then they’re working against you! Flex Tread provides extra comfort so your shoe doesn’t slip around - causing undue foot sores and pain. Take a look at our styles with Flex Tread.
We have an engineered foam compound to make our shoes extra light. Hoverlite removed 100 grams with each step, so for an eight-hour shift, the pressure will be off your legs, knees, and joints, making you comfortable and safe. For doctors, nurses, and medical professionals who move all day in the wards, Hoverlite will save your feet. Those in the catering and hospitality industry will benefit from lighter shoes too. Taking stairs, lifts, and cleaning rooms can be back-aching business, but lighter shoes can make all the difference. It’s amazing how much extra work your body has to do with heavy shoes! So take a look at our styles with Hoverlite.
