EVEN MORE COMFORT
Comfort is a decisive criterion when selecting the right safety shoe. The level of concentration at work can be massively influenced if the wearer does not feel comfortable in his shoes or if these even cause pain. And of course, that distraction can lead to accidents. Uncomfortable shoes are unpopular. We therefore ensure not only the safety of the shoe wearer but also the maximum possible comfort and well-being.
In contrast to working areas where activities predominantly take place whilst seated, conventional workplaces bring with them increased strain on the ankle, knee and hip joints, as well as the back, due to constant standing, walking and kneeling for many hours. Very hard floors are frequently also a factor here. When selecting the correct individual degree of cushioning it is always necessary to bear the specific workplace in mind. Because the foot is stressed in the heel and ball area when standing, and across its entire area when walking, the whole area of the foot should ideally be cushioned in a work shoe. Alongside the use of high quality materials with good durability and resistance to fatigue, a soft, embedding insole is particularly important.
ERGONOMIC SYSTEM FOR MORE FOOTHOLD
The support system consists of a cuff that surrounds the rear of the foot and the heel and is connected to the sole. It is integrated into the shoe‘s lacing system and, together, they create a firm yet flexible tension belt system. By stabilising the heel bone, the system increases the foot‘s stability. One of the greatest risks of accidents on the floors of production facilities, twisting, is reduced significantly in this way.
SEAMLESS UPPER MATERIAL
An entirely new wearing experience: Shoes without irritating seams. That offers major advantages. The shoe can be even better aligned with the natural shape of the foot. Furthermore, painful and distracting pressure points caused by seams are no longer an issue. And if no seam exists then these cannot tear under high stresses. And the shoe wearer enjoys yet one more benefit: The shoes are easier to clean, because if there are no seams then these cannot retain dirt. A welcome „side effect“: The shoes simply look good for longer!
BOA® CLOSURE SYSTEM
BOA® – is an innovative closure system without laces, buckles or Velcro fasteners, which holds all day long without
loosening. Because once the system has been latched in place, laces and reels stay in position without re-tightening!
Particular advantage: The closure can be closed and opened with one hand. Annoying dangling laces are no longer a problem and can no longer trip the wearer up. And BOA® functions at lightening speed.
PERFECT FIT IN NO TIME
To ensure that the shoe feels perfectly comfortable, ELTEN has come up with something special: a built-in chassis with integrated heel cap for greater stability in the sole and heel area. It increases the height of wearer‘s foot slightly with a simultaneously flatter appearance of the outsole in the heel area, thereby also improving wear comfort. Furthermore, the shoe also has a more feminine look. The chassis is not visible, but is instead permanently integrated inside the shoe.
ERGO-ACTIVE INLAY SOLES
Ergo-Active inlay soles guarantee the optimum wearer comfort-aligned with the personal requirements of the wearer. We therefore produce them in three comfort classes, which differ in terms of hardness and fit: Ergo-Active inlay soles are available in Soft, Medium and Strong and for three foottypes. In order that each wearer can enjoy the cushioning and comfort he really deserves. Thanks to the ESD equipment, Ergo-Active are also suitable for use at workplaces where electrostatic discharges can cause damage to sensitive parts.
