The feet are the foundation of the body. They are very vulnerable, and indispensible in everything we do. With the right work shoes, you can work safely and comfortably.
It isn’t always easy to figure out all the different pictograms, standards and quality marks. With the right help, you can find the necessary information on every package so you always make the best choice. Always follow the instructions in the manual for correct use.
The degree of protection provided by work shoes is indicated by the S standard. The higher the number, the better or more extensive the protection.
Work shoes with SB certification offer you protection against minimal risks. They only have a reinforced safety toe made of steel or composite.
