In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about S1 safety footwear, so you can find the perfect product for your needs!


When should S1 safety shoes be used?

  • If you work outdoors and you need to keep your feet fresh, but there is no risk of liquid splashes.
  • If you work indoors, for instance in a warehouse, where the risk of liquid splashes is low, and you need good breathability.


What standards do S1 safety shoes comply with?

S1 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.

S1 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


What other properties can S1 safety footwear have?

S1 safety shoes can also have additional properties (mostly required in specific sectors), along with the corresponding marking. The most frequent ones are:

  • 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


What models of safety shoes should I choose?

Robert Frog
I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems. Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort. During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes. Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
