How to care for your safety shoes?

Inspect regularly for damage

Safety Footwear are designed and made to withstand the toughest work conditions. However, regular inspection on safety footwear is necessary to ensure that the safety footwear is in the perfect condition to serve its purpose.

Rinse with water after exposure to chemicals

Regular cleaning and conditioning protects safety footwear from harsh weather and worksite conditions. For example, cements tend to dry up leather, causing cracks in the leather upper. A rinse at the end of the workday will enhance the durability of the footwear.

Always air and dry footwear after each day use

Remove the insoles. Remove laces or open fully. Place in a dry area. If water went over the top of your footwear or if they contain excess moisture inside, pat dry with paper towels or other absorbent material, then leave it inside the boot or shoe for 30 minutes. Remove and air dry as mentioned. Store footwear in a cool, dry place. Anti-static properties are greatly reduced by wet conditions and with wear.

A six months warranty against manufacturing defects is provided upon landing of shoes at destination

Avoid direct exposure to sunlight unless in use. Keeping the shoes in a humid environment will reduce the work life of the shoes.

Always air and dry footwear after each day use

A manufacturing month and year label is sewn on the inside of the tongue of shoes.

Safety protective footwear are not meant for prolonged usage in wet environments

Safety Footwear are constructed using a heat injection molding process.
Injection molded: outsoles start as a soft plastic substance that is poured into a sole-shaped metal mold. The shoe’s upper is then pressed down against the mold. The soling material quickly hardens and is molded in a permanent bond to the upper.
Therefore, prolonged exposure or submerged to liquids would cause damage to the bond of upper and lower sole in turn creating a crack on the joints.

Water Boots, Wellingtons or commonly known as PVC boots with steel toe cap & steel mid plate are recommended to use in wet environments.
