Wearing good safety shoes is very important and can prevent foot injuries by, among other things, standing in sharp objects or getting a falling object on the foot. Our range includes various types of safety shoes with both low and high work shoes and with the standards SB 200 joule, S1, S1P, S2 and the most popular safety shoes S3. With and without scum. Safety shoes are necessary for your own well-being and health on the work floor.

Features safety shoes
Safety shoes are available in different types and sizes. In order to be able to choose the right safety shoes, an inventory must be made of which requirements of efficiency, safety and fit they have to meet. The effectiveness of the safety shoe is mainly determined by the working conditions in relation to the durability of the safety shoes. Below you will find an overview of various codes for safety shoes.
Requirements for footwear Class I
(leather or other material,
except rubber and polymers
|Basic requirements for shoes and impact resistance of the protective nose. The abbreviation SB is derived from the words 'Safety' (= safety) and 'Base' (= basic)||
(+ fuel resistant outsole)

Below you will find an overview of additional requirements for special applications with corresponding symbols for marking.
For the entire shoe
|HI||Heat insulating, causing the temperature rise in the shoe to be reduced (<22 ° C)|
|CI||Cold-insulating, reducing the temperature drop in the shoe (<10 ° C)|
|C||Electrical resistance conductive (electrical resistance <100 kΩ)|
|A||Electrical resistance antistatisc (electrical resistance between 100kΩ and 1000 MΩ)|
|E||Energy absorption in the heel: 20 Joule|
|WR||Waterproof attachment sole / shaft of the leather shoes|
|I||Electrical insulating shoe (electrical classes 0 or 00)|
For the sole and heel
|GOLD||Hydrocarbon resistant outsole|
|HRO||Heat resistant from the sole against contact heat of 300 ° C / 60 sec.|
|P||Steel midsole (penetration resistance up to 1100 N)|
For the upper
|WRU||Waterproof and water-repellent upper material|
|ORU||Resistant to liquid fuels and oil|
|M||Instep protection (metatarsal protection)|
|CR||Cut resistant shaft|
Safety shoes are subjected to an anti-slip test according to the EN ISO 13287: 2012 standard. The manufacturer must indicate the classification with a marking (SRA, SRB or SRC). The EN ISO 13287 standard specifies a test method for slip resistance for shoes with normal soles, protection and use. It does not apply to special footwear with spikes, metal studs and the like.
The schoeisol is placed on a surface during testing, subjected to a normal force and moved horizontally, relative to the surface. The friction force is measured and the dynamic coefficient of the friction is calculated.
When the outsole successfully passes both the ceramic tile test (SRA) and the steel floor test (SRB), it is marked as SRC.
Requirements for slip resistance according to
EN ISO 13287: 2012
|symbool||Test method||Forward heel slip||Forward flat slip|
|SRA||Slip resistance on a ceramic tile with a low cleaning agent||≥ 0.28||≥ 0.32|
|SRB||Slip resistance on a steel plate with glycerin (oil substance)||≥ 0.13||≥ 0.18|
|SRC||SRA + SRB (if the sole has passed the SRA + SRB test, it automatically receives the SRC standard)||
ESD (Electro Static Discharging)
Electro Static Dischare (ESD) shoes prevent static electrical charges by rapid discharge of static electricity. Due to the low resistance of the shoes, the wearer will not (re) load himself. The shoes can be recognized by the yellow with black ESD label. The electrical resistance is strongly influenced by moisture, pollution and temperature. It is strongly recommended that the user checks his / her shoes for their electrical resistance each time he / she enters the workspace. In the areas where the wearing of ESD safety shoes is mandatory, the resistance of the floor must be such that the protective function of the ESD shoes is not canceled out.
Warning: ESD shoes are not suitable for electricians, nor for work on piping under stress.
Marking safety shoes
Safety footwear should be examined and certified by an independent laboratory. Based on this study, the performance of the equipment may be announced on the basis of the criteria from the applicable standards. All markings must be permanently and clearly legible to the shoe or boot. Each user must therefore be able to determine the suitability for the application.
All work and safety footwear must be marked with:
- Type designation of the manufacturer
- Manufacturing year and (at least) quarter
- Standard, eg ISO 20345: 2011
Semi-orthopedic safety shoes
Semi-orthopedic safety shoes are shoes with a deepened reading, creating extra space over the entire last. For people with, for example, an extremely high instep or with insoles or other foot defects, these safe, responsible shoes are a godsend. Semi-orthopedic shoes offer the following possibilities:
- extra space on the inside for semi-orthopedic adjustments by specialist
- extra raised aluminum nose
- extended fit
Mondopoint size chart
Monopoint is a standardized and universal measuring system. The anatomical shape of the foot is taken as the starting point. Once you are familiar with this system you can always count on a perfectly fitting shoe with the best wearing comfort. The table below corresponds to European and American sizes.
Safety shoes S3
Safety shoes S3 have the highest safety standards. For example, if a lot of work is done outdoors or in a humid working environment and there is a good chance that there are sharp objects in the workplace, safety shoes S3 are the best choice. Safety shoes S3 provide protection to the toes, protect the bottom of the foot and are antistatic and water and dirt repellent. If more work is done indoors or in dry conditions than we recommend safety shoes with an S1P standard. These have a toe cap and anti-perforation sole, so they offer equivalent protection as the S3 only they are not water-repellent. The S1P safety shoe breathes a lot better. The safety shoes S3 offer an all-round protection, but take into account the environment and work of your staff and make the choice based on this.
Grisport work shoes
In addition, our Grisport range includes work shoes. This Italian brand only works with high quality materials and the Grisport work shoes are known for the perfect fit. Grisport work shoes can be used in various work sectors, such as construction, but also for the logistics sector. The Grisport 801 S3 and Grisport 803 S3 are innovative work shoes whose soles are multi-functional and made of high-quality leather. The Grisport work shoes combine functionality with fashion, which will always revolve around quality and fit.
