A History of Innovation
Working hard on your feet all day can cause serious issues if you have poor footwear. With every step , two to three times you body weight can be directed on to your foot Poorly designed and made footwear directly affects workplace fatigue and orthopaedic problems in the lower back, legs and feet. These are significant occupational health concerns.
Blundstone is the pioneer in enhancing comfort in work and safety boots. We first developed the patented Shock Protection System (SPS) in our dual density soles across Polyurethane, Nitrile Rubber and Thermo Urethane Polyurethane soles. SPS directly reduces workplace fatigue and orthopaedic problems in the lower back, legs and feet. Since then we have further engineered and improved the performance of our soles with the addition of PORON® and now PORON® XRD™ in our SPS MAX. Blundstone is committed to continuing to enhance the comfort of our boots and support improved foot health. We invest heavily in research and development from our base in Hobart and work on collaborative research projects with manufacturing partners around the world, enabling us to access the best and latest technology available.
