Responding to customer feedback, Oliver Footwear has now added two new safety footwear models to its recently released WB 34 Series.

The Oliver 34-632P is a wheat ankle high lace-up boot and the 34-634P is a black ankle high lace-up boot.

Featuring premium quality water resistant leather uppers and STEELflex protection against sole penetration by sharps, fixtures, glass or similar inherently risky materials, the new safety boots also incorporate Oliver’s COMFORTcushion impact absorption system that uses a combination of cellular urethane and PORON to protect the heel and ball of the foot.

GRIPthane dual density polyurethane shock absorbing midsole is used with a hard wearing outer sole for tough workplace and job site conditions. This sole also meets demanding adherence conditions particularly on wet or slippery job site surfaces to the relevant safety standards under AS/NZS 2210.3:2009 as well as the relevant international EN and ASTM Standards.

Similar to all safety boots in the WB 34 Series, the new models also meet Electrical Hazard (EH) resistance requirements under current industry standards.

Feature highlights of Oliver’s new safety boots in the WB 34 series include heat resistant outer sole to 130°C of surface contact, and resistance to mineral and organic oils and acids. Comfort features include the unique comfort foot bed with perforated foam channels to enhance natural airflow to the feet.

Additionally, the boots’ full lining is also treated with the AEGIS Microbe Shield(1) solution to protect against odour, staining and deterioration caused by bacteria and micro-organisms.

Both boots also have NATUREform safety steel toe cap protection with a wider profile for extra comfort for the wearer as well as a padded collar and tongue for added comfort.

The unique HYDROstop protection offers a three-year guarantee against the effects of hydrolysis that can be a recurrent condition in hot and humid climatic conditions.

Both new safety boots are available with steel mid-sole protection in the size range 4-13 with half size increments from 6½ to 10½. The 34-632P and the 34-634P are now readily available through all major safety and industrial supply houses nationwide.
