Helping our customers make informed decisions
Unfortunately it’s back to work with the New Year and if your steel toe caps have given up protecting your toes it’s probably time to invest in some new work wear. But don’t worry if you’re running slightly low on funds after Christmas, we’ve got plenty of bargains to keep you well equipped at work.
Practicality can often be slightly boring but these Blackrock Fur lined Rigger Boots are not only great for keeping your feet safe with a steel toe cap and midsole, they’re also fur lined for extra comfort and warmth.
If you work indoors but still need protective footwear these Amblers Steel Safety Slip-On Women’s Shoes are perfect for industrial office use, they’re smart and do a great job of disguising the fact that they’re steel capped.
Aside from footwear we’ve also got a huge range of High Visibility clothing, including everything from hats to overalls. This Yoko Unisex Hi-Vis Thermal Thinsulate Beanie Hat can be worn alone or under a helmet and is great for being seen on those grey and rainy days. As well as the classic Hi-Vis vest, like this Dickies Highway Safety Waist Coat there’s lots of warmer options to keep you seen. The Portwest Hi-Vis Traffic Jacket is hooded, storm-proof and quilted for extra warmth.
For a good quality coverall, try these Panoply Mach 6 Panostyle Overalls. Available in grey and navy and equipped with 7 functional pockets and an elasticated waist for comfort, they offer the best blend of style and practicality.
