Dickies has introduced another 10 new styles of safety footwear and added more colours to the existing range, new lines in the PU/Rubber sole and also extended the range to offer more S3 footwear for 2015.
Wasi Ullah, buyer at Dickies commented: “Since the expansion of the Dickies brand to the oil and gas market, the Detroit boot has been introduced. This is a high-end boot with internal waterproof membrane and waterproof YKK side zip. It also has 200 gram Thinsulate lining for cold insulation. This is made with composite toe and non-metal midsole with moulded PU scuff cap. The outsole is made with PU/rubber, which is heat resistant to 300 degrees. Another addition is the lightweight S3 ESD trainer made with fully composite, non-metal material.”
There are also two basic style sneaker shoes introduced in composite toe and non-metal midsole. These are made with suede leather and canvas upper.
There is a new colour for the popular Landmaster safety Wellington boot in navy with an orange sole. The Landmaster Wellingtons are one of the lightest and most comfortable wellington boots on the market. Because Polyurethane is extremely light 40% less than PVC or rubber.
Another interesting addition is the Waders range being expanded to utility companies and environmental agencies for the first time with the introduction of two types of PVC wader, one thigh and the other a chest wader.
