Built to protect.

The #980 safety boots are packed with features including:


High quality leather that has been crafted using the most innovative finishing technologies including superior waterproofing, abrasion resistance and tear strength enable the #980 to handle some of the most demanding underground environments.


The outsole is heat resistant to temperatures up to at least 300°C and has a very high insulating value providing short term resistance to melting and cracks at higher than normal temperature ranges that may be encountered in an industrial environment.


Provides maximum resistance against perforation of the sole by nails and other sharp objects. Our leather boots with this feature have a composite penetration insole.


A non-intrusive metatarsal guard provides protection for the top of the foot against a common traumatic foot injury—fractures of the metatarsal bones. A moulded guard of XRD® Extreme Impact Protection material provides flexibility and absorbs up to 90% of extreme impacts, time after time.


The extreme BOA Fit System makes it easier and faster to get your boots on. They're also ultra adjustable which means that you can get a safer, more personalised fit.


Broad fitting Type 1 steel toe cap tested to resist a 200 joule impact. Steel is the safest toe cap material available, providing the highest level of resistance to impacts, punctures, cuts, and rolling side compression.

- First, remove any caked dirt on your boots with a soft bristled brush or damp cloth, and leave your boots to air dry. Please ensure that your boots are away from direct sunlight or any heaters, as they will dry out the leather.

- Apply leather polish, spray or cream to the leather to help maintain your boots. If you are using a polish for the first time, try it on an inconspicuous area of the boot to check whether it alters the colour or appearance.

- If using a polish, apply a small amount of leather cleaner to a polishing cloth or brush and rub onto the shoe in circular motions.
