With the Contractor range you can be sure of comfort and durability for everyday use in tough environments within contractor roles. Antistatic soles and up to 300˚C heat resistant options are available.

For specialist tasks you need a specialist safety boot. The Specialist range provides superior protection and unique high-performance benefits including a waterproof option.

The Ladies range provides full specification safety shoes and boots specially designed for a more comfortable fit for female workers. The range includes a waterproof option, as well as metal free designs and antistatic soles across the board.
The Industrial range offers choice and performance for warehouse and transport applications. These metal free boots include waterproof and heat resistant options while ensuring breathability.
When smart appearance and safety must go together – perhaps for managerial roles and those important site visits – the Formal range delivers. While more formal in appearance, these designs still pack a punch in the safety department, with 200 joules toecaps, midsole protection and antistatic soles.
Lightweight and comfortable to wear for extended periods, the Safety Trainer range provides a great choice when bulkier boots aren’t practical. Includes metal free options.
For wet conditions, the Wellingtons range offers full safety protection and antistatic soles in a choice of styles, including above the knee waders.
“The selection of foot protection depends primarily on the hazard. However, comfort, style and durability should also be considered. The choice should be made on the basis of suitability for protection, compatibility with the work and the requirements of the user. Safety footwear would be maintained in good condition, checked regularly and discarded if worn or deteriorated”
