Safety Standards

If you’re not in the know, some of the European Standards for safety shoes can trip you up. We carry 3 options in our work collection, click below to find out how they differ.

SB Safety Standards

SB stands for Safety Basic, but what does that mean exactly? It’s good news for your toes which have full protection against a 200-joule impact – To you and me, that means you’re protected if you accidentally drop up to 20kg on your foot.

All to do with the quality of grip on the outer sole, the SRA standard helps you avoid slip-ups in the workplace. This certification indicates the footwear has held its own during rigorous testing on ceramic tile wetted with glycerol and will protect you from the indignity and potential injury of skidding onto your backside.
The level of slip resistance will be referenced in the product name - it will be either SRA or SRC.

Keep your feet when all around are losing theirs with our slip-resistant footwear. Tested on treacherous ceramic tile and smooth steel, with diluted soap solution and glycerol, our high-grip soles hung on for dear life to attain a slip resistance rating of SRC – the highest possible safety rating that outsoles can achieve.

You can always put your best foot forward knowing your feet are protected by our legendary 200 joules steel toe caps. Tested to 15 kilonewton compression, which means your feet are safe for up to one and a half tonnes of resting weight, this resilient technology is even more robust than our composite toe caps. This resilient technology is even more robust than our composite toe caps.
The toe type will be referenced in each product name - Steel (ST) or composite (CT).

Steel toe vs composite toe – not sure which way to go? OK, our composite toe caps are lighter than steel ones but, tested to withstand 20kg dropped on your toes. they’re no lightweights when it comes to protection. They’re also completely metal free so they have the added benefit of not conducting electricity.

S1P Safety Standards

S1P standard safety shoes come with an impressive package of anti-static, oil-resistant and energy absorbing properties, as well as a fortified puncture-proof mid-sole that will protect your foot should you ever stand on a nail.

S3 Safety Standards

S3 is the magic number when it comes to safety shoes and boots. This exacting standard means footwear comes with everything you get with S1P – anti-static, resistance to fuel and oil, energy absorbing heels and a penetration-resistant mid-sole – and, even better, you get water resistance to boot.

Construction

Goodyear Welt

Unlike most construction methods, the stitching goes from the upper down in to the sole, making it incredibly durable.

Cement

Cemented construction is the method of attaching the sole to the upper. Once the upper is shaped, the sole is attached with an incredibly strong adhesive to secure it.

  • • 10-15% lighter
  • • The sole last longer and compresses 30% less over time
  • • Ease sole gives you 30% more bounce back, making it very comfortable to wear for long periods

Our waterproof product use waterproof lathers, sealed seams and waterproof membranes to keep water out and feet dry for navigating the city in the elements.

ReVive: Engineered. Comfort Technology: Comfort engineered to support your foot. Made with lightweight cushioning that is durable and provides more energy return than other foams.

Materials

Full Grain Leather

We use quality leathers that are taken from the outer-most section of the hide, full grain leather has not been sanded or buffed.

Nubuck Leather

In comparison to suede, nubuck is stronger and more durable, because it is made from the top layer of the hide.

To keep leather in good quality, use polish. If wet, allow leathers to dry naturally. Insert a shoe tree or rolled up paper to help keep the shape when drying. Do not place on a radiator as this may affect the leather.

Dirt should be allowed to dry naturally. Once dry use a soft brush or cloth to remove the dirt. Brush in a circular motion to lift the nap but avoid staying in the same area for too long. Brushing on a regular basis will help to keep the nubuck in good condition.
