In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about safety footwear with rubber soles, to help you find the perfect product for you needs!

The rubber:

Rubber is the material for safety shoes with the highest resistance to chemicals, heat, hydrocarbon, acids and abrasion. In general, it is the material with the best resistance in almost any circumstances. Indeed, most safety shoes for special applications (like those for firemen and those for foundries) have rubber soles.

In this article I will talk about single-density rubber soles, which are the most compact and the sturdiest, because rubber is not mixed with other materials such as PU or EVA, which are less resilient.


Main characteristics:

SINGLE-DENSITY RUBBER: extremely resistant. It can withstand temperatures ranging from -30 to +300 °C, it’s hard to pierce even with a sharp or pointy object, it withstands the contact with hydrocarbon, micro-organisms and several chemicals. However, rubber is heavier than PU and TPU, and less flexible when it’s subjected to low temperatures. Rubber soles are also known for their great slip resistance, comparable to that of PU and TPU.

RECOMMENDED USE: in- and outdoors, when there is a risk of contact with hydrocarbon, chemicals and acids. If they have the HRO marking, they are also suited for working on hot surfaces. It’s a heavy and compact materials, hence it is not the best option if the lightness of your footwear is important to you.

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.
