Protection from the toes up
Our safety boots offer everything that’s needed to ensure maximum safety for the feet of you and your workforce. These steel toe boots (also known as rigger boots, or simply ‘riggers’) have a strong cap at the front to protect toes from dropped objects, along with a puncture-proof sole. They’re made from durable brown leather and come in an easy pull-on style. What’s more, they’re water resistant, electrically insulating, energy absorbing and antistatic, as well as being insulated against both heat and cold. The sturdy sole is resilient to contact with heat, and slip resistant on slippery surfaces such as ceramic and steel, plus there’s extra protection for the metatarsal area. Of course, our safety boots comply with EN ISO 2034 and Classification S1, meaning they’ve passed rigorous tests to make sure they’re up to the job. And it goes without saying that they’re cosy and comfortable too.

Employees should wear safety boots in environments where there is a chance of injuries to their feet and legs from any of the following hazards: wet flooring, slips, cuts and punctures, falling objects, metal and chemical splash, abrasion, handling heavy items etc. To ensure that you comply with the Personal Protective Equipment regulations, always check with the Health and Safety Executive for current legal requirements.
Good for: Any working environment where there is risk of injury to the foot or ankle, including (but not limited to): construction sites, warehouses and factories.
How they work: One of the key features of safety boots is their toe cap, designed to protect the toes from injuries, particularly those sustained from falling objects. Toe caps are sometimes also made from aluminium and thermoplastic, but ours are made from good old steel. Our safety boots come with plenty of other protective benefits, including shock absorption, slip-resistance and electrical insulation.
Rigger boots get their name because they used to be the standard issue footwear for workers on offshore oil rigs. The benefits and durability of the boots became widely known, and these days they are the boot of choice for thousands of construction workers as well as those on the rigs.
