S2 safety shoes

If you are looking for a pair of shoes that you can use at work throughout the year, then I recommend S2 safety shoes.

In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about S2 safety shoes, to help you find the perfect product for you needs!

If you need to ask something specific, write me an email to robert.frog@safetyshoestoday.com.
I'll be happy to answer you!

 

In what cases should be used?

  • In workplaces outdoors, no matter if there’s water or not
  • If you want to own a single pair of safety shoes to wear throughout the year

 

What standards do they comply with?

S2 safety shoes comply with the UNI EN ISO 20345 = shoes equipped with toecaps, which protect the wearer from impacts and crushing, with resistance to energies up to 200J and to pressure loads of at least 15kN.

S2 safety shoes have all the basic properties of SB shoes (base safety), plus:

  • Closed heel region
  • Antistatic
  • Shock-absorption in the heel area
  • Resistance to the contact with hydrocarbon
  • Water-resistant upper

 

What other properties can they have?

S2 safety shoes can also have additional properties (mostly required in specific sectors), along with the corresponding marking. The most frequent ones are:

  • AN = “Ankle Protection” (ankles are protected from side impacts)
  • CI = “Cold Insulation”
  • ESD = “Electrostatic Discharge”. ESD shoes are not designed to protect the wearer, rather the electrical equipment sensitive to electrostatic discharges
  • HI = “Heat Insulation” (in the outsole)
  • HRO = the outsoles can withstand the contact with very hot surfaces
  • M = Metatarsal protection
  • WR = the whole footwear is waterproof
The expert's advice

I advise you to buy S2 safety shoes if your need is to protect your feet from the entry of water or liquids inside the shoe.

In fact, the distinction between the S1 and S2 models of safety shoes lies precisely in the resistance to water that S2 shoes have, that the S1 do not have.

Clearly, in most cases, S2 shoes will be less breathable than S1 shoes so you have to choose this marking if you work in contact with liquids or if you run the risk of getting your feet wet in your work.

The upper will therefore be resistant to water and the shoes will have greater precautions to protect you from the entry of water and liquid splashes.

If, on the other hand, you work in contact with large quantities of water and do not want to use rubber safety boots, you will need to purchase safety shoes with the additional WR marking, then you should look for S2 WR.
