Eight new styles of safety shoes

31 October 2017

U-Power has introduced eight totally metal-free styles in its best-selling RedLion range of safety footwear.

Aimed at increasing wellbeing for workers in the food processing, catering, pharmaceutical, front-of-house and butchery industries, the shoes feature Redlion’s trademark new mid-sole with Infinergy, one of the most exciting developments ever to take place in the safety footwear industry.

Infinergy’s patented technology returns over 55% of positive energy to the wearer by making the insert spring back into its original shape immediately after impact, so helping to maintain the wearer’s energy for longer periods than a conventional shoe.

The RedLion dramatically reduces stress, pressure, fatigue, backache and other musculoskeletal disorders and increases comfort and performance thanks to this ground-breaking insert.

All shoes in the new catering range are wipe-clean and water resistant, very important qualities in the food and catering sectors, where water, oil, grease or food are often present on the floor. Six of the styles are white, with two available in black, suitable for airport and security use thanks to them being totally metal-free.

All styles boast self-cleaning cleats, giving excellent slip-resistance and protection from slips, trips and falls, and are classed SRC, meaning they have more than met the specified requirements when tested on both wet ceramic tiles and steel with glycerol. With a coefficient of friction (CoF) of 0.82, the shoes have surpassed the industry standard by almost a factor of three. All are available in unisex sizes 2-12 (35-46).

Named June, Blink, Linkin, Glace, Blanco, Noir, Zelda and Moon, all models of the shoes are extremely lightweight, very flexible, and fantastically comfortable, thanks to the return of energy created by the Infinergy.

Stuart Thorne, U-Power’s Managing Director, said: “These new styles in our RedLion collection are valuable additions to our most successful range of safety shoes ever. The RedLion simply can’t be beaten in any industry or situation.”
