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

The TPU:

TPU is a material which is widely used in the production of soles for safety shoes, thanks to its excellent elastic and aesthetic properties. “TPU” stands for “thermoplastic polyurethane”. It’s almost always combined with a midsole of polyurethane (PU) to obtain a PU/TPU sole. This material is often used in colorful soles, because it can be made of any color, including translucent.


Main characteristics:

PU/TPU: TPU is a very sturdy and flexible material. It has very good performances: excellent abrasion resistance and a slip resistance comparable to that of single-density PU and rubber; flexibility. In average TPU is more durable than PU and has a better protection from low temperatures.

RECOMMENDED USE: in and outdoors or in cold places; not recommended for works on hot surfaces.

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.

  1. I’ve loved my blundstone boots with Tpu soles . I have back problems and they really are the best for standing long hours on concrete. BUT they are the worst on snow and ice, I’ve had a couple of bad falls while wearing them. Be careful!
