Keep your feet protected from the elements this winter, in one of three new safety boots from Dr. Martens’ industrial range.

Designed to safeguard tradesmen who must spend part, or all of their time outdoors, the new fully waterproof collection comes in three styles; TURBINE ST, SURGE ST and TORRENT ST.

Particularly suitable for outdoor workers enduring prolonged exposure to the cold weather, the TORRENT ST 8-tie waterproof S3 boot has an abrasion resistant toe guard and 200g Insulation to provide total protection and comfort in extreme work environments. A padded collar and tongue also provides increased wearer comfort. The non-metallic, composite safety toe-cap eliminates cold transfer discomfort – commonly experienced with steel caps.

The TURBINE ST safety rigger boot and SURGE ST 6-tie waterproof S3 boot are both made from industrial grade leather and nylon uppers, with abrasion resistant toe guard to provide total protection under extreme work environments.

With a heat resistant outsole to 300oC, all three boots carry the fixed European standard mark ISO 20345:2011 and SRC slip rating.

The boots have slip resistant soles and a rugged rubber compound outsole with 90° heel block for ladder grip.Removable Smartmask PU cushioned footbeds for comfort and optimum toe protection have also been included to provide additional shock absorbing properties. The entire range features antistatic properties, a composite steel toe cap and Smartmask puncture resistant midsoles.

Jon Marchant, global category manager at Airwair International - Dr. Martens, said: "Whether you work in construction, manufacturing, agriculture or oil and gas, the new industrial collection provides the warmth and insulation to protect your feet against adverse weather conditions and the stability and grip to help prevent accidents."
