Oliver Footwear have added a new range of lightweight shoes complete with non-metallic safety toe cap protection and a host of comfort features. Designated as the Oliver ST’s 44 series range, the new releases offer a choice of stylish safety footwear for industry applications, including building and construction, manufacturing, transport and logistics, supervision and security work sites.
The choices in the ST’s 44 series range are two lace–up sports shoes and one lace up ankle height sports boot. Each choice employs the TPU (Thermo Plastic Urethane) soling technology with a lightweight, shock absorbing and low density polyurethane midsole, which cushions the foot on impact reducing foot, leg and lower back fatigue.
Each style in the ST’s range also offer the Oliver COMFORTcushion, a combination of cellular urethane and PORON to give added protection to the heel and ball of the foot. The Oliver comfort system also utilises a NANOlite footbed, which gives greater comfort and well-being with the sole actually massaging the foot while walking to enhance blood circulation and reduce fatigue.
The sole combination affords a range of performance features including resistance to heat on surface contact to 130°C, and to mineral and organic oils and acids with good slip resistance, as well as against cutting, splitting or cracking. The safety protection is afforded by a NATUREform non-metallic Type 1 composite toe cap which with its wider profile allows for greater comfort and avoids direct contact between the foot and toe cap.
The cap which is more than 40% lighter than steel has full Australian Standards compliance and along with the other features of the Oliver ST range will not activate metal detectors, generate sparks or rust, affording an ideal footwear choice for industrial sites. Each of the three Oliver ST’s offers a stylish upper combination of Nubuck leather and fabric with a padded comfort collar and tongue.
The fabric colours include grey/black, red/black and blue/black leather and fabric choices with matching laces, to make a definitive fashion statement in addition to the safety and comfort features. The Oliver ST 44 series range is available in sizes from 5 to 14 most with half size increments.
With the comfort, performance and durability Oliver Footwear have again stamped its authority on the provision of preferred workplace safety footwear choices with the new ST 44 series range.
