PU SAFETY BOOT FOR BATA INDUSTRIALS
Bata Industrials is one of the leading manufacturers of safety footwear. The objective of this project was to design the ultimate PU safety boot. During the develoment phase we observed every aspect of the boot to see what could be improved in term of safety and comfort without increasing the manufacturing price. The main concept was to get rid of moisture and contamination as soon as possible while walking.
Both the upper and the outsole were designed with this approach in mind. Since the upper is molded from one piece, we had to apply multiple surface finishes and transition channels to guide liquids towards the back of the boot. The outsole is built from multiple density blocks, that can press out dirt from underneath the feet in a more efficient way.
The boot has been designed for both food-processing and construction work applications.
