Puma partnered with Shoes for Crews to provide safe, slip-resistant footwear for industrial workers.
The athletic wear brand’s Puma Safety line collaborated on collection with the workplace footwear provider, offering enhanced performance features suitable for industries from healthcare to hospitality.
The product line, launched includes one men’s and women’s sneaker style in five color ways, featuring full-grain leather and microfiber uppers, with lightweight composite and fiberglass safety toe options for protection on the job. The shoes are lined with antimicrobial and moisture-wicking textiles and feature odor-controlling insoles and IDCell EVA midsole technology made for shock absorption.
The shoes also meet ASTM F2413 safety standards, protecting against electrical hazards and offering compression resistance in high-impact situations. Additionally, the shoes are designed with traction outsoles to prevent slippage. Available on ShoesforCrews.com, the shoes retail for $124.98.
“By coupling our latest easy-clean outsoles and state of the art technology with the classic athletic styling of Puma, we’re offering uniquely designed safety shoes so crew members feel comfortable and safe at work,” he added. The inaugural product line features only industrial products, but O’Connor said the brands intend to expand the offering to include shoes suited for more use cases.
“This is just the beginning of a partnership that will help us enhance our customers’ experience and further our mission to become the No. 1 provider of safety footwear across all industries,” he said.
John Spotts, Puma Safety director of sales and business development, said the partners aim to provide “classic safety shoes that will protect millions of workers and define the future of athletic safety.”
