uvex Sportsline on Winners Podium

Safety shoe won German Design Award

The uvex sportsline safety shoe range brings together functionality, comfort and style in a lightweight, slim and flexible design. This winning combination also impressed the jury of the German Design Council, with the 8473 model from the uvex sportsline series beating over 5000 entries to claim victory as the German Design Award Winner 2018 in the Industry category.

Equipped with metal-free penetration-resistant midsole and toe cap, the uvex sportsline protects and offers a high level of flexibility when working. The shoe toe area is protected against wear and tear with a TPU scuff cap helping to increase product life especially when kneeling. The uvex sportsline is also suitable for ESD areas due to the bleeder resistor under 35 megaohms and the SRC-certified slip resistance and a lightly indented arch guarantee safety with every step, even on ladders make it suitable in a range of industrial applications. Ultra breathable textile upper and a distance mesh lining provide excellent wearer comfort and a balanced foot climate.

The double-layered polyurethane outsole with shock absorbers in the heel together with the removable, anti-static comfortable climatic insole ensures good absorption and moisture wicking properties which helps protect the musculoskeletal system and promotes good foot hygiene. With the individually adjustable fast-lacing system, the safety shoes fit the foot perfectly and securely with no laces to work loose throughout the working day.

The uvex sportsline is available in three colours in sizes EU 35 to 48 and meets EN 20345:2011 S1 P SRC. The uvex sportsline is the ideal safety shoe for light industry applications such as warehouse, logistics, automotive, aerospace and tradesmen.
