A new sandal made of natural leather and with a Velcro strap to make the shoe more wearable and to fit the foot better. Light weight and resistance coexist to perfection in this model; the former is an inherent characteristic of the minimal design of the upper; the latter is guaranteed by the steel toecap, which prevents any risk of crushing and/or compression.

A novel compound for both the polyurethane foam midsole and the compact polyurethane outsole, comes from PANDA SAFETY R&D Team. This innovation results in a sole that excels in lightness, flexibility, and elasticity, all while conforming to the stringent chemical, physical, and mechanical requirements of European standards. The MICROLIGHT soles provide the wearer with exceptional stability and wear resistance that redefine the standards of the safety and occupational footwear industry.
Crafted from composite material, this protective toe cap is rigorously tested to shield the toes from impacts of up to 200 Joules (J) and compressions reaching 15 Kilonewtons (kN). Beyond its protective qualities, it’s non-magnetic, nonconductive, and offers superior thermal insulation.
Crafted from multilayer polyester fabric, this protective plate is approximately 40% lighter than its steel counterpart while still providing the same resistance to penetration forces, up to 1,100 Newtons (N). It’s flexible, non-magnetic, thermally insulating, corrosion – resistant , hypoallergenic, and it safeguards 100% of the foot’s resting surface.
A special tanning process that involves applying a polyurethane film to the exterior surface renders this genuine leather entirely waterresistant. This ensures enhanced protection, safeguarding against the challenges of damp work settings and inclement weather conditions.
Crafted from a threelayer fabric, this lining features a unique network of microchannels, ensuring unparalleled breathability. It’s highly resistant to wear and tear, and its antimicrobial and antibacterial treatments effectively combat the growth of harmful microorganisms, also keeping unpleasant odours at bay.
Removable insole, enhanced with antistatic and anti-odour features, excels in moisture absorption and release, ensuring a persistent
feeling of freshness throughout the working day. The surface touching the foot utilises SANITIZED® technology, a built-in hygiene treatment that prevents the proliferation of potentially harmful microorganisms, guaranteeing a healthy environment inside the footwear.
Crafted from wear-resistant technical fabric, this insert, when overlaid on the inner lining in the heel area, prevents its deterioration, significantly enhancing the shoe’s overall durability.
Strategically placed within the tongue and collar, these ergonomic cushions envelop the top of the foot, promoting the correct alignment of the foot and ankle. They support the wearer’s postural wellbeing and guarantee a snug and comfortable fit.
While small in size, this component is extremely useful: it streamlines and hastens the fitting, and includes a reflective element to enhance the wearer’s visibility in dimly lit environments.
From the selection of raw materials and components, the entire manufacturing process is geared towards minimising the weight of this kind of footwear while ensuring protective performance meets the reference standards.
