    The introduction of safety footwear in the hiker boot style has proved to be a big hit with customers of leading workwear manufacturer Dickies (UK). Among the most popular styles are the Storm Super Safety Hiker, the Thames Super Safety Hiker and the Berwick Super Safety Hiker. All three styles have steel toe-caps conforming to EN345 (200 Joules). This is the European standard for safety footwear and will protect the toes from a 20Kg weight being dropped from a height of 10.2 metres and safeguard against compression equivalent to 1.5 tonnes. Additionally, the boots are fitted with flexible steel midsoles to protect the feet from sharp objects underfoot.

    The Storm Super Safety Hiker has become the preferred style for many tradesmen who mainly work in private homes or plush offices. Although it has a very attractive design, the Storm offers the protection of a traditional safety boot. Combining a lightweight suede and mesh upper with a dual density Polyurethane shock absorbent sole ensures the wearer remains comfortable no matter how long his working day. These quality safety hiker boots also feature a breathable Cambrelle lining designed to keep the foot warm in winter and cool in summer.

    The durable leather upper and tough polyurethane rubber sole of the Thames Super Safety Hiker are bonded together using cemented construction, producing a lightweight and flexible boot. This form of construction provides superb resistance to water penetration. Furthermore, a waterproof membrane is fitted in the upper part of the shoe, so your feet will stay dry regardless of how wet it is. The anti-static rubber sole with cleated tread provides excellent grip in slippery conditions and there is also has an energy absorbent heel.

    The Berwick Super Safety Hiker has a hardwearing leather upper with a scuff cap over the toe area to protect it from wear and tear if work regularly involves kneeling. The antistatic sole is made from dual density polyurethane and there is an energy absorbent heel. A padded collar and tongue provides excellent comfort.
