WR Safety shoes

If you need occupational shoes to protect your feet from water splashes, then I recommend a pair of WR safety shoes.WR Safety shoes

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

Normally safety shoes marked WR are equipped with sealing seams (to prevent water from entering the footwear) and also with a waterproof membrane, which replaces the inner lining. This membrane doesnt’ let water reach the feet, because it has micropores that are too small for water drops but big enough to let air through.

 

In what cases should WR footwear be used?

  • if you work in moist or wet environments
  • if you work outdoors, under any weather condition
  • if you often step on ponds

 

What standards do they comply with?

The additional marking of safety shoes, including the “WR” marking, are described in the standard UNI EN ISO 20345, in table 18.

WR Safety shoes are submitted to a specific test to measure their resistance to water infiltrations. To pass the test the total wet surface inside the footwear at the end must be ≤ 3cm².

 

What models of WR 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.
