Benefit: Provides sufficient slip resistance to prevent a fall when working on soapy wet tiles.
What is it: Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Additional Classification. SLS (soapy water) solution on ceramic tile test. Slip resistance coefficient only heel contact is > 0.28, and slip resistance coefficient with whole shoe flat contact is > 0.32.
Benefit: Oil resistant rubber (for workplaces with oil on the ground). Slip resistant.
What is it: Specially formulated vulcanized rubber, custom shaped with a tread pattern
Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.

What is it: Specially formulated foam material by PORON.
Where is it: Placed directly under the insole inside the shoe in high impact areas in the forefoot and the heel.
Benefit: Provides and excellent balance of shock absorption (cushioning) and energy return (rebound). These cushioning and rebound properties are longer lasting than other cushioning foams.
What is it: Polyurethane sponge.
Where is it: The midsole of the shoe, which is the part under the foot, between the outsole and the upper.
Benefit: Supports the ankle and holds the heel firmly in place, providing excellent stability when the foot first strikes the ground. A firm heel counter is essential for fundamental support and stability.
