OUR FOOTWEAR TECHNOLOGY

OUR INNOVATIONS START WITH YOU

We didn't invent the work shoe. We obsessed over it. Our entire collection has been re-imagined, then rebuilt, with one thing in your mind: your safety.

feature-shield-img
SHIELD OF SAFETY

We don't outsource safety. We own it. That's why we've put our Shield of Safety on our shoes. With one glance, you'll know you're safe.

tripguard-img
TRIPGUARD

Sometimes big lugs at the front of your shoe can be a trip hazard, so we created TripGuard. The slight curve and tight lug pattern make it easy for you to move from slippery surfaces to carpet and rugs safely.

zonetraction
ZONE TRACTION

The job you have determines how you move at work and what kind of traction you need. ZoneTraction combines the most efficient and powerful traction patterns, and puts them exactly where you need them most to stay safe.

spillguard
SPILLGUARD

If things boil over at work, count on SpillGuard. Engineered into the linings or the material overlays, this membrane protects your forefoot from hot liquids.

flextread
FLEX TREAD

You work hard. You need a shoe that works with your foot, not against it. FlexTread outsoles are designed to mimic your foot's natural movement so you and your shoes are always in step.

hoverlite
HOVERLITE

We've engineered a foam compound to make our shoes lighter. Hoverlite removes 100 grams with each step you take, which means that over an eight-hour shift, we help take pressure off your legs, knees and joints.
