Construction site comfort

03 December 2014

Timberland PRO has launched a new safety boot for construction site workers in the UK called Timberland PRO PRO HERO.

The new boots are said to offer the wearer comfort, protection and durability as well as slip, water and abrasion resistance.

Stephanie Altit-Hazan, marcom manager for Timberland PRO in EMEAI, said: "We have listened to the needs of workers across the UK construction industry, who have told us exactly what they want from a safety boot and we have developed the Timberland PRO PRO HERO as a result. A high quality product without a high price tag, offering a range of features specifically designed for the diverse trades at work. The new footwear has an uncompromising performance for rugged, wet environments with protection against impact, compression and puncture injuries.” 

Designed with a PU injected outsole, which is not only lightweight but also guarantees excellent shock absorption, the sole unit gives the wearer high slip and abrasion resistance on any surface, essential for construction site working. With sites often being wet and muddy, the premium upper – available in Timberland Nubuck or full grain black leather – is water and abrasion resistant as are the laces. Four rows of stitching further add to the Timberland PRO HERO’s rugged performance and durability.

Physical protection against crush and compression injuries is delivered through the non-metallic toe cap whilst the steel midsole safeguards against puncture hazards out on site. 

Comfort is also vital, so as well as being lightweight and flexible, the Timberland PRO PRO HERO also benefits from both ankle and tongue padding and a removable, cushioned, technical insole that is antibacterial and antistatic to help keep feet dry and healthy.

The new Timberland PRO PRO HERO is available in sizes 4 to 12 and certified to the EN ISO20345 standard for safety footwear.
