Anvil safety boot available to order



Safety footwear supplier Anvil Traction has announced that its Zevaz slip resistant safety Wellington Boot is now available to order. The company say the boot is ultra-lightweight, combining the latest in polymer technology with the Anvil Traction slip resistant sole.

The firm explains that the slip resistant outsole is based on Anvil Traction’s Anchor design – the octagonal pattern has a wider cleat arrangement which avoids clogging when used in areas of high contamination and the multiple leading edges provide a wiping action to move lubricant out of the way. Anvil also add that the slip resistant rubber compound 07/03 mechanically improves slip resistance and exceeds the minimum average requirements in accordance with ENISO 20345:2011 by 48%. A yellow wear indicator cleat is built into the outsole, they say, that focuses on the rate of sole abrasion and provides a visible indication of when the wellington should be replaced.

Other features of the boot highlighted by Anvil Traction include the following:

  • the upper polymer material is an expanded foam full of air, which acts as a thermal insulator
  • the air filled polymer construction offers comfort and reduces muscle fatigue and stress over the course of a working day with the EVA Energy formula offering superb under-foot impact absorption and providing added rebound energy between steps. Furthermore, it is estimated to be 2-3 times more durable than PVC.
