Series to ensure high visibility and increased wearer safety
With the style of a sneaker, but the performance attributes of a work boot, the Zero-G Lite redefines speed, safety and comfort for the active worker. Due to a X-Lite Sole, styles range between 12.7 and 13.8 ounces, making the Zero-G Lite the company’s lightest shoe without sacrificing safety, durability and superior performance for best-in-class slip resistance. An EVA footbed provides high-rebound cushioning at key strike points, controls odor and is sustainability made with recycled materials. A low-profile aluminum safety toe provides lightweight protection without looking like a typical safety-toe shoe. The Zero-G Lite collection will launch in fall 2019.
COOLING INNOVATIONS LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS
Burnside Boot The Red Wing Burnside boot for men offers best-in-class safety performance attributes without sacrificing ultimate comfort. Handcrafted in Red Wing, Minnesota, the Burnside features a new Vibram® outsole for excellent slip and heat resistance. A memory foam padding along the tongue and collar minimizes pressure points around the ankle, and a fourlayer removable footbed with polyurethane (PU) midsole, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) arch and gel pod heel strike create unmatched comfort and protection against abrasion. The direct attach welt construction allows for extreme durability and flexibility, while a Nano composite toe cap provides superior protection with less weight and bulk.
