WORK BOOTS WITH ORTHOTIC INSOLES SUPPORT
The ultra-soft arch support insole helps to further cushion the foot, reduces fatigue, and makes our work boots extremely comfortable. By raising the arches of the feet it helps to rest the supporting ligaments and muscles of the feet.
When we rest the structures of the feet it allows them to heal making them less painful. Because our boots are engineered and recommended by a podiatrist they help in the prevention of plantar fasciitis and other foot conditions.
COMFORT WORK BOOT BUT TOUGH ENOUGH FOR ANY ELEMENT
The EVA midsole helps to cushion the heels and forefoot and reduce fatigue. By using the perfect density of Eva midsole (not too hard, not too soft) we can cushion the foot, knees, and leg. This leads to fewer aches and pains, and also a harder wearing midsole and a longer-lasting boot.
Slip-resistant sole / outsole work boots
The outsole of our boots is slip-resistant providing a good grip to prevent slips and falls. Our tread pattern will also help to grip uneven ground on the work site. A hard-wearing nitrile rubber helps to make the outsole of our work boots more durable and heat resistant.
Anti Static work boots
Help to reduce the build-up and discharge-related accidents for the user.
A WORK BOOT MADE FOR ON OR OFF THE JOB SITE
Stop warranty claims, pain & fatigue with an inbuilt (airport friendly) shank to prevent twisting and bending in all of the wrong areas.
Poly Propylene Shank
We have modernized the traditional steel shank by changing the material to polypropylene to make it airport friendly and lighter. The shank helps to add stiffness to the boot which helps to reduce strain over the middle of the foot and prevent pain. Uneven ground can be difficult to work on, so when working on rough or uneven job sites it is best to have a more rigid boot that works with the natural movements of your feet. The embedded shank adds stiffness only allowing bending where your foot bends.
Wide FIT friendly work boots
It is important to have comfortable workwear to enable you to concentrate on your job. Our broad-fitting boots are made in a 2e fitting to suit both men and women. Just like when you are fitting your shoes, the width of a work boot is very important to accommodate the toe and forefoot to prevent pain and injury.
Light weight work boots
The lighter the shoe the less work you do when you are walking. While it is difficult to keep the weight of a boot with so many features down, our work boots are at the lighter end of the weight range. This will help to limit fatigue at the end of a long day.
Arch support added to our workwear will reduce fatigue and improve the safety by limiting overuse damage.
Arch Support Orthotic Insole – Built into the Safety Boots
Work boots and safety shoes often focus on being able to protect the user from injury and often disregard supportive aspects. One of the key features that sets our boots apart from the rest is the incorporation of an orthotic insole into the design. These insoles are carefully crafted to balance the rolling in and rolling out of the foot, preventing excessive arch collapse during weight-bearing activities. By maintaining proper alignment, these insoles distribute pressure evenly across the foot, reducing strain on specific areas. Consequently, workers experience less fatigue throughout the workday, enabling them to perform at their best and remain productive without discomfort.
Our work boots offer a game-changing solution for mens work boots and women who face long hours in the workplace. By minimizing the strain lower limb caused by abnormal motions like over pronation, our boots ensure that workers can tackle their job responsibilities with ease. With reduced fatigue and strain, the risk of aches, pains, and overuse injuries significantly decreases. Whether you work in construction, healthcare, or any other industry that demands long hours of standing and working, our work boots with orthotic insoles will transform your work experience, allowing you to focus on what matters most without the distraction of discomfort.
Biomechanical Support: Supporting the natural function of both men’s and womens gait with our workboot collection will keep you pain free in style
Our orthotic work boots are designed to work with the natural biomechanics of your feet, delivering optimal functionality and comfort.
Where does the boot bend: Our boots prioritize bending at the joint of the big toe, where your foot naturally flexes during weight-bearing activities. This works with the natural movement and minimizes strain and discomfort.
Overpronation Control: We design our boots with stability features that control overpronation, the excessive rolling inward of the foot. This promotes a more neutral foot position, reducing strain on foot and leg muscles and encouraging a healthier walking pattern.
Cushioned comfort: Our boots feature cushioned insoles and midsoles, providing exceptional shock absorption and comfort. Whether you’re standing or working, the cushioning minimizes fatigue and ensures a pleasant experience throughout the day.
Limitation of excessive twisting: Incorporating a shank and stiff board, our boots offer a method to limit excessive foot twisting. This enhances stability, reducing the risk of strains and twists that can lead to foot pain.
2mm Heel counter: The heel counter of our boots is thoughtfully designed to cradle the heel and promote a neutral position. This alignment minimizes rolling inward or outward, contributing to a balanced and natural gait, and reducing strain and discomfort.
The safety toe on a modern workboot range is often composite due to its better performance over a steel toe and the same safety rating.
Composite Safety Toe (Modern version of steel cap)
Safety footwear is required to have a protective toe cap to increase protection from impact and crush accidents. Our workboot range has been designed with a composite toe cap instead of the traditional steel toe or steel cap. The composite toe cap will protect the toes as well as a steel toe or steel cap but it will be lighter and a better insulator. Steel toe boots are generally heavier and have poorer insulators than composite toe boots.

Slips and falls are one of the more common workplace accidents. Our elements work boot range of safety boots are slip resistant to a class SRA1 for safety footwear. This is particularly helpful for workers where slip hazzards often occur such as fuel and oil workers or hospitality workers.
Shank: The features of ergonx boots such as a shank and stiff board help to rest overworked muscles, joints and ligaments
Shank For Torsional Stability
Safety footwear is often good at protection but can be left lacking when we assess it for stability. A shank and stiff board have been added to our great range of safety boots to keep unwanted twisting and turning to a minimum. When footwear and boots are more stable your feet will work less and ache less and generally be more comfortable wearing our workboot range

Protective Tpu Scuff Cap
Our safety footwear has a protective scuff cap to keep your boots looking good for longer and also keep you compliant with workplace standards. The protective cap will cover the composite toe cap (steel cap) and prolong the life of your boots.

Airport Friendly: Steel free features of the ergonx elements make passing through airports a little bit easier.
The low and no steel components in our workboots make them the perfect pair for workers who fly in and out of the mines as they will be able to pass through airport security without taking off their safety shoes or work boots.
Fuel & Oil Resistance: When working with contact to fuel and oil the safety outsole needs to be able to withstand this contact.
Fuel & Oil Resistant
Resistance to fuel and oil is one of the features of the ergonx boots that you cant see. Safety footwear is tested in fuel and for 22 hrs continuously and still fall within the Australian standards for function. Non-safety boots do not conform to this standard.
Heavy Duty Zip: Our sip up work boot collection uses a YKK heavy duty zip which is the worlds on of the world biggest brands whne it comes to shoe fasteners. The option of a slip on is also available
