Safety footwear specialist Aimont has launched what it believes to be the world’s lightest safety shoe with its new Airforce range.
Ideally suited to workers who are constantly on the move or on their feet all day the new Airforce range weighs in at just 430grams – the equivalent to less than half a bag of sugar.
Lightness and comfort have been combined in equal measure with protection with the Air Force range incorporating the Light Tech package – Light Plus 200J non-metallic toecap and a puncture resistant ballistic fibre Flex-System midsole, Vento Plus footbed and Air-Texplus inserts.
The Air-Texplus inserts are a completely a new and highly breathable synthetic material created specifically for the Air Force range, which maintains the microclimate inside the shoe – even at high temperatures – which also has excellent resistance to abrasions and lacerations.
The 3D lining which surrounds the foot works with the vento-plus footbed ensuring breathability, its structure allowing air to circulate and the shoe to breath as well as being antistatic
Underfoot, the Air Force range benefits from a 100% Polyurethane sole unit which is not only lightweight but provides good grip and slip performance, the sole impact-zone providing shock absorption for micro-vibrations.
"We are delighted to be able to introduce what we believe to be the world’s lightest safety shoe which combines comfort, protection and slip resistance. Foot fatigue can be a real problem for many people who are working on their feet for hours every day. The Air Force range removes this problem whilst at the same time offering high levels of safety and protection, and wearer comfort with the development of the Air-Texplus inserts," said Stuart Thorne of Aimont, part of Jal Group.
