Are you looking for safety shoes to work in the construction field? With so much footwear, you don't know what to choose?

In this article, we will help you find the best safety shoes for you. We will also explain why RedPro models are the best footwear for construction.

To find your ideal shoes, you have to analyze three main categories: safety, comfort and slip resistance.

SAFETY

It is necessary to ensure that the footwear for this area complies with all safety standards. Usually, it is required to wear shoes with a toe cap and safety midsole.

Let's start with the safety toe cap. Every construction footwear must have a toe cap that will protect your feet from impacts and compressions.

The RedPro shoes have a polycarbonate toe cap with anatomical protection resistant to impacts greater than 200J and to compressions of loads up to 15kN.

In addition to the toecap, it is also important to have an insole that protects your feet from punctures caused by sharp objects. The insoles of the RedPro models are made in Kevlar with a puncture resistance greater than 1100kN.

With a polycarbonate toe cap and a Kevlar insole, the shoe is 100% metal-free. This feature becomes essential when you work in areas with metal detectors or magnets.

Additionally, it also helps to keep your feet warm, especially when working in cold areas. The metal contributes to the cooling of the foot because it is a good temperature conductor.

With all these features, the RedPro models have everything you need to keep you safe while working.

COMFORT

You may think that comfort is not a relevant feature of safety footwear, but it is the opposite. Comfort is associated with health, so it is another essential feature.

Construction workers spend long hours standing and making physical efforts. If you're not wearing comfortable shoes, a simple discomfort will become a long-term health problem. That is why it's so important to wear comfortable shoes.

If your shoes feel uncomfortable, working every day in this condition will not only affect your performance but can also have consequences for your health.

As previously mentioned, RedPro models have a Kevlar insole that contributes to your comfort. Kevlar, unlike steel, is very flexible and very light. This makes the shoe more comfortable for your feet.

At Dikamar, we also created the sole of this shoe with your comfort in mind. The sole is made of PU, which is much lighter than other materials like rubber.

Another factor that improves comfort is the shoes' thermal insulation. In the construction area, it is common to work in low temperatures. For this reason, RedPro shoes have excellent insulation to keep your feet warm throughout the whole day.

It is crucial to preserve your feet's temperature, but you can't let them overheat. To prevent this, RedPro has a breathable fabric that will balance your feet's temperature and avert bad odors.

SLIP RESISTANCE

In the construction area, it is also occurring to have to work on greasy floors, which increases the risk of slipping and falling.

A simple fall can be dangerous. On top of that, there's the fact that you are surrounded by construction tools that will increase the risk and a simple fall ending badly. That is why the shoes made for this job must be slip-resistant.

RedPro models have a slip-resistant sole. These shoes' sole is SRC certified, which means it has passed the test for the highest level of slip resistance.

With RedPro, you can work without having to worry about slipping and falling.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN REDPRO MODELS

Now that you know more about construction shoes, it's time to learn more about what distinguishes the RedPro, the RedPro 5S, and the latest RedPro 3S.

The three shoes are very similar. However, some differences may be significant for you.

The RedPro shoe has an ankle opening. This gives greater movement freedom and comfort and makes the shoe even lighter.

On the other hand, the RedPro 5S doesn't have this opening, which makes it taller. The advantage is that you will have better support in this area.

Additionally, the RedPro 5S has reflective bands on the sides that will give you greater security if you work in a low visibility area.

The RedPro 3S is a taller and more closed shoe. This gives even more stability and preserves more heat. This boot still has a breathable inner lining and a reflective strip on the back.

Check which are the requirements for your workplace before choosing between one of these models. It may be required for the shoes to cover the ankle area, or to contain reflective strips.
