Safety footwear with genuine military leather

At the A + A 2009 the climate neutral safety footwear manufacturer L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG is presenting its new model series Aqua. Its distinctive feature: The water-repellent safety shoes of the Lupriflex® brand are made of genuine German military leather. The upper material is famous for its robustness and longevity.

The hydrophobized military leather is up to 2,7 mm strong, is water resistant up to 6 hours at least and is showing comparable test values like membranes with regard to its water vapour permeability. Its high wear resistance is due to the fact that the leather originates from German bulls which have the world-wide strongest skin. Furthermore, the upper material is ecologically compatible as it does not contain any harmful substances.

The Aqua series comprises shoes and mid-cut boots in the protection classes S2 or S3 with a stable Polyurethane sole as well as the water-proof lace-up boot Aqua BW Profi with rubber Vibram® sole and climatic membrane. Toe protection is given by a steel toe cap, a steel midsole protects against nail penetration.
