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 mind: your 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.

The tires on a race car are super wide, because the more contact they make with the surface, the better the grip. We borrowed that concept for the new heel shape. It's a bit wider and slightly squared off to increase the contact area between the floor and your shoes, to decrease the chance of slip and falls.

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.
