women’s feet are different

the work they do is not

Introducing the all new women’s range

Women’s feet are different from men’s, so why are they frequently expected to wear smaller sized men’s footwear? This is not only uncomfortable for women, it can result in lower levels of safety, leaving them more susceptible to twisting, rubbing and other problems. Working closely with Transport for London, and the only remaining commercial British last maker, we have spent the past two years developing a bespoke women’s range which is perfectly fitted to the female foot shape. It’s not pink, it’s not patronising, it’s technical yet stylish safety footwear that is so comfortable it leaves you free to concentrate on the job at hand.

Safety first, as standard

As well as featuring the excellent safety features you would expect on a V12 product, such as a lightweight composite toecap, midsole and speed lacing, the range also includes a deep padded ankle support with additional anklebone protection. These offer comfort and support to the wearer, reducing rubbing and preventing ankle twisting.

Soft, tactile materials

The new women’s range is designed using high quality materials that are deliberately lightweight to offer overall better comfort. The high non-slip collar is softer both inside and out, the internal lining is much softer than standard and the number of seams has been reduced to avoid the rubbing sensation these can sometimes cause.

Female specific last shape

Women’s feet are different in both structure and biomechanics to men’s feet. They are narrower overall, have a narrower heel, a smaller Achilles tendon, a higher arch and a more curved inside line. This understanding was incorporated into the development of a totally new, bespoke female specific last, which will provide unparalleled comfort to wearers.

IGS sole – Unbelievable grip

The IGS is our most technical sole to date. We’ve adapted it to fit perfectly to the new women’s last shape. It still has all the incredibly slip resistant features, including a hex grip pattern for water dispersal, firefighter ladder grips for working at height and an angled heal strike for slip prevention and braking.

Developed by women for women

We were approached by TFL (Transport for London), who have an increasingly strong female workforce, to provide a female specific range that provided high levels of safety as well as extreme comfort. They implemented a collaborative research and development programme that involved talking to many of their female workers and collating all their feedback. This provided us with an incredible insight and data to help us create a range of footwear that specifically met their needs and were more than happy to wear on a daily basis.
