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

In what cases should safety shoes with Velcro fastening be used?

  • If you need to adjust the fastening of your shoes very precisely, to adapt them to the shape of your feet
  • If you need safety shoes that can be taken off very quickly when needed, for example in case of an accident
  • If you’re sick of the classic lacing
  • Many diabetics use shoes with Velcro

What is intended by the word “Velcro”?

Velcro is a fastening system that is not only used for footwear, but for a very wide variety of products (jackets, backpacks, bags, etc.). Velcro was invented in 1948 by the Swiss electrical engineer George de Mestral, and it quickly spread to be popular all over the world. There are countless versions of  Velcro, many of which are not produced by the parent company, but the name Velcro has now become widely used, even for the products of that type that are produced by other manufacturers.
The greatest advantage of Velcro fastening is how quickly it can be opened and closed, and the possibility of adjusting the footwear in several points to adapt it to the shape of the foot. That’s why many diabetics prefer to use shoes with Velcro fastening.

What standards do safety footwear with Velcro fastening comply with?

Just like all regular safety footwear, safety shoes with Velcro fastening comply with the standard UNI EN ISO 20345 = “footwear equipped with toecaps, which protects the wearer from impacts and crushing, with resistance to energies up to 200J and to pressure loads of at least 15kN”.

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.
