Dickies safety footwear range includes: Safety boots that provide good footing and possess excellent anti-slip properties. Dickies offer the Antrim Super Safety Boot, which is smart yet highly durable. The Antrim benefits from a steel toecap and midsole protection with a full insock and padded tongue and anti-slip for all round comfort. Conforming to the footwear standard EN ISO 20345.

Safety boots will protect the wearer's toes and are cut to offer ankle protection too as standard. In addition many of the Dickies work boots benefit from midsole protection for penetration resistance in this area. The most common type of UK safety footwear has traditionally been steel toecap boots. However, composite safety footwear is now becoming increasing popular as a lightweight safety footwear option. Whichever style you choose you can be sure of EN20345 British Standards of protection for yourself.

Dickies have also found that demand for lighter weight footwear is currently the main trend with regards to safety footwear. Safety footwear really started to become lighter in weight with the use of injected PU sole units. The introduction of composite toecaps and composite material mid-plates only accelerated this demand.

Corporate Director, Judy Clay, who oversees PPE development, added:  “I am dictated to by EU legislation. We make sure that our entire PPE product is compliant using notified bodies in the UK; compliance is taken very seriously throughout the business. Dickies continues to research the market with a view to assessing what, if anything, is missing from the PPE range in order to develop it further.”
