In addition to traditional steel toe-cap protection, leading workwear manufacturer Dickies (UK) offers composite toe-cap protection with the Nimbus Super Safety Hiker boot.

Composite safety footwear uses an extremely tough Polycarbonate casing for the protective toe-cap. However, the level of protection provided is the same as that afforded by steel toe-caps, EN345 (200 Joules). Furthermore, a kevlar midsole provides anti-perforation underfoot protection. Kevlar is an extremely fibre, which is also lightweight and flexible. Composite toe-caps have the added benefit of being less conductive than steel which helps to keep the feet warm in the coldest weather.

The Nimbus Super Safety Hiker has a contemporary ergonomic design combining a leather upper and a rubber outsole which is both oil and slip resistant. Designed to provide comfort as well as protection, the Nimbus Super Safety Hiker features a padded collar and tongue. Additionally, a rubber scuff cap is fitted over the toe area to protect the leather on this part of the boot that can be particularly vulnerable to scuffing.

Displaying the high standards in construction and design that has seen Dickies become prominent in safety footwear manufacturing, the Nimbus Super Safety Boot is the ultimate in lightweight safety footwear.
