Warehouse workers cover up to 20 km every day as they sprint through the halls – always on the go, on their feet. And obviously classic, heavy-duty safety and leather shoes are not going to meet their requirements or the needs of other professional groups. Footwear that you wear at work is not all the same. It needs to be comfortable and lightweight, whilst also fulfilling certain basic protection requirements and functionality.
The same also applies to medical professions, employees in the
gastronomy sector and canteens and for couriers – therefore the range of work shoe models, styles, colours and sizes, like that of engelbert strauss, needs to be large enough to meet the various needs of different professions. All models satisfy the requirements of the standard EN ISO 20347 and, with their comfortable outer sole, are ideal shoes for use indoors or for all those who do not need safety shoes.
Work shoes are not all the same. But all work shoes fulfil even the basic requirements better than conventional sport shoes in all areas. If you want to know what standards and requirements are recommended, just contact your professional association or employer. Our work shoes are available in the protection classes OB, O1 and O2.
