Getting comfortable and safe footwear may not be the first thing on your mind when working in transport and logistics, but you'll be grateful for them by the end of the day. Here are our recommendations for the best shoes and boots for the job.
Since there is a diverse range of jobs within the area of transport and logistics, it's important to assess what your needs are and buy footwear appropriate for your environment. Whatever your role, genuine leather uppers and a textile lining will ensure you stay comfortable.
If your role involves lifting and carrying heavy objects, or you're often in an area where this occurs, then it's important to buy footwear that has a safety toecap. All footwear certified with the ISO 20345:2011 standard feature toecaps that will withstand 200 joules of impact.
Many workers in the sector spend a lot of time on their feet, so an energy absorbent heel is a great asset. If you're frequently outdoors, water-resistant footwear could prove useful.
Finally, if you work in management, and are popping between boardrooms and loading bays, we offer a range of formal safety shoes which will work in both environments, so you won't have to keep swapping footwear.
One of our most diverse brands is Grafters. Offering everything from non-safety Chelsea boots to formal safety shoes, you're certain to find the right pair for the job.
The M5501A is the ideal all round work boot, with a cushioned ankle for added support and a secure lace up fastening. The dual density PU sole provides ample support for the soles of your feet, whilst the protection of a steel toe cap, gives you extra piece of mind when moving heavy objects.
