If you are looking for occupational footwear with very sturdy soles without an excessive weight, then I recommend a pair of safety shoes with PU rubber soles (PU = polyurethane).

In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about safety footwear with PU/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 environmental condition. The only flaw is its weight, that’s why manufacturers have invented a new type of sole, light and sturdy: those of PU rubber, which combine a light and shock-absorbing PU midsole with a super robust rubber outsole.

PU/rubber soles are widely used in the manufacturing of safety shoes for rather hostile environments.


PU/RUBBER: (generally soles obtained through injection molding). This type of footwear maintains the properties of rubber in the outsole, whereas the midsole is made of PU, so allowing to reduce the weight. PU in this case is the weak spot in the most extreme situations, where rubber has better performances.

RECOMMENDED USE: indoors and outdoors, where there is a risk of contact with hydrocarbon, chemicals or acids.

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.
