That is why I strongly recommended you to make a good search of safety shoes with shock absorber

The best solutions to protect your feet from impacts are coming from: different types of outsole, internal comfort insole:


There are several outsole compounds but more generally:

  • PU SINGLE DENSITY: generally this is one of the most comfortable and impact absorbing outsoles because the single density of PU is a less dense compound so it is much lighter and more shock absorbing. Just have a look at the thickness of the outsole, usually the ticker the better.
  • PU PU – PU TPU – PU RUBBER : these compounds are generally very shock absorbing because the midsole (between the upper and the outer sole) is a very low density compound so the shock absorbing is usually very high.
  • SINGLE RUBBER DENSITY: this compound generally is less shock absorbing, because rubber is a high density compound and if not joined with another material like PU or EVA it is not very shock absorbing even if it is a recommended material for specific applications
  • EVA RUBBER: EVA is one of the lightest materials used for outsoles of safety footwear, coming from sport shoes. It is generally a high shock absorbing material, but mostly when the shoe is new. EVA doesn’t have the best “memory” effect so after being used for a certain time the compound gets more compressed and the shock absorption is then reduced



This is one of those features where manufacturers are expressing the best of their bet to help users. You better check the insoles of the safety shoes that you are going to buy. I will make a specific post on this matter

  • impact absorbing insoles

  • different thickness insoles

  • different materials insoles

  • gel insoles

  • insoles with impact absorbing materials (D3OPORON)


These are the solutions that I suggest to you when you’re looking for comfortable safety shoes.

Now you have to choose your safety shoes with shock absorber. There is a ton of products on the market that are identified as comfortable safety shoes to help you get protected from shocks in the heel area.

Don’t forget to look for the type of outsole, the type of comfort insole and, possibly, the result of the energy absorption if indicated by the manufacturer.

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.
