Oliver Footwear has released AT55 (All Terrain) series safety workboots. Oliver Footwear claims that this is the ideal footwear it has ever constructed.
And coming from a family owned company based in Ballarat Vic. that has been bootmakers since 1887, the claim is worthy of being put to the test.
So what differentiates the AT 55s series from the pack?
Ideal new technology, which affords the wearer significant comfort as well as additional safety features are the key differences to other safety footwear choices.
Foremost in the AT55s range is the use of a nanolite footbed for underfoot comfort. Simply put the nanolite footbed (with patents pending), affords greater comfort and wellbeing for the wearer.
The gently raised surface of the sole massages your feet as you walk, promoting a greater blood flow to help reduce fatigue.
The perforated foam air control layer also enhances circulation with reduced foot odour being one of the benefits. Oliver has matched the new nanolite footbed with an additional raft of features.
These include the traditional Oliver Comfortcushion, which employs a combination of cellular urethane and Poron to protect the heel and ball of the foot, affording greater cushioning and shock absorption at the heel.
These features are coupled with a distinctive all terrain outer tread pattern, water resistant leather uppers and a wide profile Natureform type 1 protective toecap.
The durability of the AT55 series is further enhanced by heavy duty Tectuff toe and heel guards with additional durability and protection, especially against abrasion and scuffing.
The anti-static rubber outer sole can withstand temperatures up to 300°C while the use of Kevlar threading on critical wear seams will simply hold the series together for longer with maximum abrasion and chemical resistance.
Five footwear style choices make up the Oliver AT55 series. There are three 150mm (or 6 inch) lace-up mid-cut boots, offering a choice of wheat nubuck leather, claret or black leather uppers, all of which are water resistant.
The lace-up mid-cut boots all come with padded ankle, tongue and collars and the size choices in the range are from 5 to 14 with half size increments from 6½ to 10½. A traditional elastic sided boot with black water resistant leather uppers is also likely to prove an ideal choice.
The final member of the new AT55s range is a hi-leg zip sided boot with wheat nubuck leather uppers, which are also water resistant and have a lace closing system at the front with a lace locking feature.
Oliver Footwear’s managing director Phil Hughes says that the AT55s range release comes after broad consultation with industry and safety footwear wearers at large.
“There is significant demand from the building and construction, resource and mining support sectors for better safety footwear products, which afford the wearer advanced comfort, durability and safety features.
“We simply say try a pair of correctly fitted Oliver boots for 30 days and if you are not completely satisfied, return them to the specialist dealer, who was the point of purchase with the dated receipt and guarantee tag, for exchange or refund,” says Phil Hughes.
Oliver’s new nanolite footbed (patent pending) is the key word for greater comfort, and wellbeing along with a host of additional features for comfort, durability and safety.
