WORTEC presents new variety in the S3 class at the A + A

Penetration-proofness for every need

Classical in design, functional and amazingly favourably priced - that is how the new models of the WORTEC collection exclusively presented at the A+A in Düsseldorf are introduced. Highlights this year are the first WORTEC shoes manufactured entirely without metal. There is also a new shoe group developed specially for the building sector and some new WORTEC basic models. All in all, a complete package with something for every need.

Metalfree S3 shoes for all-round use

With the "Rafael" safety half-shoe and "Remo" lace-up boot WORTEC is introducing two models whose versatility fits them for virtually universal use. Both shoes meet the requirements of the S3 safety class and are manufactured entirely without metal. In place of the classic steel toecap and steel sole there is a new plastic cap and an L-Protection metalfree midsole. This midsole offers full penetration-proofness to EN ISO 20345, combined with improved comfort and optimum flexibility, so that the difference between these and an S2 shoe is scarcely noticeable. Because the shoes do entirely without metallic materials, they are also outstandingly suited for work in sensitive work areas, for example, in the vicinity of metal detectors or induction loops.

"Rafael" and "Remo" are also outstandingly equipped for wearing comfort. One particular plus point is the very lightweight TPU outsole with its soft PU sole core, which combines optimum walking qualities and slip-proofness with an amazingly light weight. Also padding on the tongue and collar as well as the ergonomically shaped full-surface insole and the breathing textile lining ensure especial comfort. Leather carbon-fibre look inserts on the rear cap are a further plus. "Rafael" and "Remo" thus offer a complete package offering safety, function and comfort.

Robust shoe group for the building sector

WORTEC is also presenting some new developments for the building sector at the A+A. These include the "Mika" S3 lace-up boot and the "Marc" S3 half-shoe, which offer high functionality with optimum comfort based on a totally newly developed sole shape. Both models stand out for their particularly robust sole structure designed to meet the special requirements of the building sector. The upper material of the shoes is entirely leather and is therefore particularly resistant to stress and dirt. There is also the abrasion-proof front protection, which additionally protects the front part of the shoe against damage. "Mika" and "Marc" are fitted out with the L-Protection penetration-proof midsole, breathable textile lining and a full insole. Reflective piping, convenient fast lacing and, not least, an excellent price-performance ratio complete WORTEC's new development for the building sector.

Penetration-proofness with excellent price-performance ratio

For all of those who want to fit themselves out with basic models from the WORTEC collection there are no fewer than two new S3-class safety shoes, the "Janis" half-shoe and the "Jaro" lace-up boot. The new polyurethane sole design offers high wearing comfort thanks to a broad, comfortable fit. With their breathable lining, full insole and reflective material on the heel "Janis" and "Jaro" offer high standard comfort with an excellent price-performance ratio.
