Safety footwear specialist Jal Group has created a new light and sporty look to its range of industry safety footwear with the launch of J-Runner.
Ideally suited to workers who are constantly on the move in industry sectors such as: manufacturing, maintenance, assembly and transport and
distribution, J-Runner offers total comfort and safety to the wearer as well as giving a more sporty, informal look compared to traditional safety footwear.
Physical protection comes in the shape of the AluTech 200J aluminum toecap provides 200-Joule protection whilst being 50% lighter than steel
toecaps and a non metallic FleXtane pierce resistant midsole made from 100% composite materials, which not only highly flexible but also 70% lighter than a steel midsole
The EVA sole also ensures J-Runner offers high performance in terms of comfort, responsiveness and stability. The design of the sole unit
particularly under the ball of the foot - ensures that impact shocks are more effectively absorbed, whilst enhancing grip and slip resistance, whilst the TPU support in the foot arch keeps the foot stable.
J-Runner? is available in sizes 3 12, and in four trainer-type styles; Johnson, Jeffrey, Jones (in black) and James (in white). All models boast a
100% breathable lining, which has a resistance to abrasion but is also designed to keep the foot free from perspiration.
The new J-Runner? range offers all the safety benefits required for today's working environment but in a range that is focused on a much more
high street trainer design.
There is no doubt that the trends of the high street are having an increasing emphasis on the work place and people want to feel comforetable
in what they wear, whilst providing the right levels of safety. We believe that the new J-Runner range achieves this to create a really good looking range of safety trainers, said Stuart Thorne of JAL Group.
