FAQ of Safety Shoes

Safety shoes provide foot protection on various parameters like sharp objects, falling heavy objects, electrical hazards, slipping etc.

It depends on the application for which you would need one, for which our experts can guide you.

We recommend a shoe sample size kit for trial before placing the final orders

For a better fit, it is recommended to try out shoes when switching from one last to another

Last is like a mold that gives the shoe its 3-Dimensional figure

Shoe Composition

Shoe sole composition comes in PVC, Rubber, Polyurethane (PU) & Thermoplastic-Polyurethane (TPU)

Poly-Urethane is a mixture of Polyol and Isocyanate and is the most widely used soles in safety shoe industry.

PU Single density

PU-PU Double density


Nitrile Rubber


Increased temperature resistance and traction

Polyvinyl chloride

It is a synthetic rubber copolymer of acrylonitrile (ACN) and butadiene provides increased puncture and temperature resistance.

Microfiber is one type of synthetic leather; this material is microfiber non-woven fabric coating with a layer of high performance PU (polyurethane) resins

  1. Performance is better than the real leather and the surface effect can be achieved in line with the real  Leather
  1. Tear resistance, abrasion resistance, tensile strength and so on are all beyond real leather
  2. Light weight, soft, good breathability, smooth and good feeling, and tidy and free from wear facets
  3. Antibacterial
  4. No odors
  5. Eco-friendly
  6. Cost-efficient

Yes, it is water-resistant and easy to take care of and can be used in the rainy season occasionally

It is a metal cap that is strategically integrated in the shoe to protect your toes from falling objects.

Depending on toe cap specification, it can provide impact resistance of 200J, 140J or 100Joules *200 Joules = An object weighing 20 kgs falling on ground from a height of 1 meter / an object of 2 kgs falling from a height of 10 meters.

It is a non-metal toe-cap and is made of Polymer. It is also called FRP (Fiber Re-enforcement Polymer) with an impact resistance of 200J

Both may provide the same level of protection, though Composite Toe caps are much lighter

Where metal free shoe is required like airport security etc. or where probability of shock is more, since metal is good conductor of electricity the wearer is more prone to shock if he is wearing a metal toe-cap.

Shoes can be Electrical Shock Resistance, Antistatic & ESD

Conduct static electricity through the insole, linings, cement, outsole, and into the ground, helping regulate the buildup of electrical charge on a person’s body. A shoe preventing Electro Static Discharge between ranges 100 kilo ohms and the upper threshold is at 35 mega ohms

Shoe that is worn in order to reduce or eliminate electrostatic hazards. Insulating rubber is non-conductive; anti static material is conductive, but the resistance value is large, the standard requirement is between ranges: 100Kilo Ohms to – 1000 Mega Ohms.

It is time when the shoes in not used, packed & placed on a shelf.

  1. Detachment of sole from upper
  2. Development of crack in the sole
  3. Abrasion of the sole

There’s no one answer to the question. It depends on how you use your shoes. We guarantee our sole for 6 months against any manufacturing defect.
