A new women’s safety boot has hit the market and it promises style and functionality. Iconic Australian footwear brand, Blundstone, has combined the latest technology with design flair to launch a new range of women’s safety boots specifically designed for women in the trades, building and construction industry.  Blundstone’s Women’s Safety Series boots bridge the gap between safety and style, providing a sturdy, reliable and fit for purpose boot designed for optimum support, protection and comfort for the toughest job sites.

From construction to property, engineering and electrical trades, the two styles, #892 and #897, are part of the wider Women’s Safety Series providing an extra level of support and cushioning with Blundstone’s SPS Max Comfort system, featuring XRD® Technology.

XRD® Technology provides supreme and repeated impact protection by absorbing up to 90% of energy with every step taken. This feature changes the level of performance, comfort and confidence for the wearer and reduces fatigue and orthopaedic issues. 

The launch of the Women’s Safety Series shows our commitment to ensuring women, like men, have choice and access to high-quality safety boots needed for longevity in their careers”, says Adam Blake, Blundstone Global Head of Brand, Design and Consumer Engagement.
