Walki Soft: New Safety Shoes by Euro-Dan

Euro-Dan 656-07 Walki Soft
Safety shoes with pronose, Euro-Tex® membrane, penetration resistance, antistatic double-density PU sole which is heat resistant up to 150°C, fuel-oil resistant and has a built-in 3 Point Euro-Dan® Shock Absorber.

Uppers:
Permair® is the worldŽs leading dry leather finishing system. Highly water-resistant, breathable, extremely durable, and resistant to a wide range of chemicals,
it significantly improves the protective properties of footwear leather, whilst providing a wipe clean, non-polish benefit for the wearer.
Permair® leather Protector is engineered to surpass the safety footwear requirements of European Standard EN 344-1+A1:1998, the American Standard ASSI Z41 and the Canadian Standard CSAZ 195-M92.

Sole:
The sole is made of double-density PU material. It is fuel-oil resistant and heat resistant to temperatures up to 150°C. The sole of this model is equipped with a built-in Euro-Dan® SHOCK ABSORBER, symbolised by a jumping frog. The sole absorbs and distributes shocks and pressure to the entire tread surface, thereby sparing back and joints and relieving the body as much as possible. The sole also includes a protection against nails over the entire tread surface, preventing nails and other sharp objects from penetrating into the foot.

Heel lining:
The lining used for this model is high-grade oxhide with extremely high wear resistance. All oxhide used by Euro-Dan® Sko has been approved according to the strictest requirements specified in EN 345-1+A1:1998 for thickness, tearing strength, wear resistance, pH value, water vapour permeability and coefficient.

Insole:
The insole is the inner tread surface; it is made of the strongest insole material available worldwide, i.e. TEXON®. The actual insole is equipped with a pressure-distributing steel link. If, for instance, you stand on a ladder, your foot will hurt in the point where you tread on the ladder. Your footwear being equipped with a steel link, however, the pressure distributes over the entire foot, so you will not feel the difference between standing on a ladder and standing on a flat floor.
Furthermore we have incorporated a Cambrelle insole, it is a special Soft insole and the material has the effect that it absorbes the perspiration and will make yourfeet feel comfortable all day long. If you want to replace the insole you can easily do it yourself,

Pronose:
The protective toe cap - the so-called pronose - is made of PU material like the upper part of the sole. The pronose ensures long life to a shoe's most exposed parts. Previously, shoes where the skin had been worn off the toes were a frequent sight; thanks to the pronose this has now changed. Besides, it was Euro-Dan® Sko who invented the pronose, thereby being the first ones to solve a most annoying problem.

Membrane:
To ensure comfort, we have incorporated a Euro-Tex® membrane into our safety footwear, making it completely waterproof. Given the fact that drops of perspiration are smaller than water drops, the foot is able to breathe because the Euro-Tex® membrane has been designed to allow perspiration to escape and prevent penetration of water. The Euro-Tex® membrane allows surplus heat and moisture to escape, away from the foot. This makes your feet feel comfortable all day long. A perfectly soft skin at the top, combined with soft foam padding contributes to perfect comfort.

Lining:
The inside of the model is lined with a synthetic material, making the shoe comfortable. The lining used in this model has been approved according to the strictest requirements of EN 345-1+A1:1998 for thickness, tearing strength, wear resistance, pH value, water vapour permeability and coefficient.

Steel toe cap:
The steel toe cap is of the brand "Esjot", made over a last with width 12. This footwear protects against shocks of up to 200 Joule and against compression of 15,000 Newton. The toe cap is "foot-shaped" and has an extremely fine fit.

Cambrelle replaceable sole.
Futhermore we have incorporated a replaceable cambrelle insole. It is a special Soft insole, and the material has the effect that it absorbes the perspiration and will make your feet feel comfortable all day long. If you want to replace the insole, you can easily do it yourself.
