High-rebound safety shoe

23 May 2019

U-Power has launched the Red-Up collection of stylish, high energy-return, work safety shoes.

Innovative technology has enabled the use of High Rebound Elastopan, a new material from BASF, in the PU intersole of the Red-Up. This is said to ensure a return of more than 40% of energy to the wearer over the entire surface of the foot.

U-Power says energy is regenerated and given back to the wearer to boost performance over time. The high-rebound RedUp is flexible and lightweight to reduce fatigue and improve both posture and productivity. 

Suitable for industrial areas, the RedUp shoe comes as ESD, and features Elastopan memory foam insoles, which take the shape of the foot, improve weight distribution, and relieve pressure points.

Three styles also feature Hypertex Putek technology, a breathable and water-repellent material that is said to be 20 times more abrasion-resistant than traditional materials. 

The 25 different styles in the range offer excellent shock absorption, an aluminium safety toe cap and a non-metal pierce-resistant midsole. In addition, the Red-Up’s slip-resistance exceeds the requirements of the European Standards.  

U-Power’s managing director, Stuart Thorne, says: “The blend of softness, comfort, lightness, breathability and protection of the Red-Up shoe, plus the return of so much energy to the wearer, ensures a feeling of total wellbeing. Tiredness and fatigue are diminished, posture is improved, and productivity in the workplace boosted.”
