SERIES 3.0 - THE DIFFERENCE
Since its release in 2009, WIDE LOAD® has become the benchmark in wide fitting extra depth safety footwear. Designed and developed in Australia in collaboration with leading orthopaedic/custom made shoe makers and podiatrists, the WIDE LOAD® last is based on EEE+ fitting providing an additional 8mm overall forefoot girth. Wide Load is 12-15mm wider and 6mm higher than the industry standard facilitating the fitting of custom made orthotics.
Previous WIDE LOAD® products had a pre-fabricated stuck on sole and midsole combination, the new SERIES 3.0 is now direct injection dual density polyurethane construction. This process provides a significant improvement in soling security. This technology combines a low density polyurethane shock absorbing midsole with a hard wearing thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) outsole for tough working conditions. The direct injection soling process forms a secure bond between the upper and midsole and provides a robust and durable combination. The anatomically designed forefoot provides an additional 15% "footprint" compared to the industry standard. This additional surface area combined with the self-cleaning cleat design provides maximum stability and enhanced slip resistance. The bevelled heel strike and heel cushion zone help reduce foot, leg and lower back fatigue.
