The upper portion of safeTstep shoes are made with the toughest work environments in mind. We know you work where oil, water and cleaning agents are prevalent.
The “upper” of every safeTstep shoe is made with these characteristics:
- Water Resistant – repels liquids to keep your feet dry
- Breathable Fabric – allows air flow to keep your feet cool
- Lightweight Design – for all-day use
We’ve replaced most PVC (polyvinyl chloride) materials with PU (polyurethane), since PVC tends to crack more when in contact with water and cleaning agents. Many of our shoes are also made with leather.
The process for testing the upper part of a shoe involves the application of oil and cleaning agents that simulate actual working conditions to which the footwear is exposed. We test all the time!
