Are you a fitness freak? Or does your daily life require you to wear something a little extra than the usual footwear—in terms of safety and protection?
For the longest time, I used to think that safety joggers shoes are supposed to be ugly looking, gigantic blocks of rubber, that weigh almost as much as half my weight and would require a few horsepowers worth of energy for me to walk wearing them. How wrong was I? or maybe I was right all these years with my perception of safety shoes, and finally, some God-sent heard my prayers and came with safety joggers!
Safety joggers, also called safety runners and safety shoes are lightweight protective runner-style shoes designed to offer protection over and above regular shoes. If you are looking for a pair of shoes that is the perfect combination of comfort and protection, then safety joggers are your best bet.
Industrial Safety shoes are highly recommended by safety specialists or people who are involved in tasks like driving, warehouse workers, or anyone who works for elongated hours on hard flat surfaces, for example, at airside on airports. If you are into logistics or transport worker, you can enter your worksite wearing safety joggers without having to worry about changing your footwear.
A little sneak peek into the history of safety joggers
What started as a small shoe factory in Belgium called Cortina, has now turned into an international brand consisting of several brands. Safety joggers are one of the brands.
Working under the trusted and well-reputed name of Cortina, safety joggers have an edge over its competitors as it is considered a stable brand and it can grow without compromising on quality.
Just to give you an idea about the business magnitude and popularity of safety joggers, it sells over 32 million pairs a year!
Safety joggers has its factory located in Belgium with a team of European experts who work diligently to maintain optimum quality and bring about innovative designs that maximize comfort for the wearer.
Some key features of the Safety joggers are:
1. Protective toecaps: you must have dropped something heavy on your toe once in your life, and you must be aware of the pain and hurt it causes. Keeping this in mind, safety joggers come with composite toecaps. For anyone, the obvious choice would be to go with shoes having steel toecaps; however, composite toecaps offer the same level of protection, minus the weight. Moreover, it lets you through the scanners at the airport!
If your work calls for special instructions to wear safety shoes with steel toecaps then you can go with Safety Joggers models Bluntstone Active or Oliver WB 34-614.
2. Standards Certified AS/NZS 2210.3: Several models of safety joggers are certified against standards for protective footwear. The sole purpose of Standard AS/NZS 2210.3 is to ensure manufacturers and users with the requirements for Safety footwear intended for use in workplace applications. RSEA Safety recommends choosing certified footwear for better protection and workplace risk reduction.
3. Comfort throughout the day. If your safety shoes promise maximum protection but weigh a ton, then it is bound to affect you. Safety shoes are meant for the workers to wear and walk with them throughout the day. Safety Joggers has come up with the latest model that is as light as feather. Well, the model RedDust only weighs 500 gms. Isn’t that a feather in the shoe family?
4. Heel and arc support: if your work requires you to be at your feet throughout the day, you must be familiar with the pain it may cause at the arch and heel of your feet. Blundstone Active safety joggers feature full-length PORON® XRD™ cushioning and arch support while the Puma Pace safety joggers feature unique Puma DuoCell® technology to reduce impact forces in heel strike. Safety shoes for industry workers reduce the pain in your heel.
