Safety footwear for green space professionals

On a daily basis, green space professionals traverse rough trails, manoeuvre through uneven terrain, or handle heavy tools, all under unpredictable weather conditions. In these situations, ordinary shoes are not sufficient. Safety shoes for gardeners and landscapers are specially designed to provide optimal protection against common risks such as falling objects, crushing, or slipping.

What features should you look for in safety footwear for green space professions?

For green space roles, where professionals often face challenging working conditions, safety footwear must strike a balance between protection, comfort, and durability. Here are some key features to look for in safety footwear for tasks such as lawn mowing, urban park maintenance, ornamental tree pruning, or any other green space-related work.

Safety footwear tailored for outdoor use

S3 standardised safety footwear

For green space professionals working outdoors, navigating through mud and water, we recommend at least S3 standardised safety footwear with a waterproof upper.

To enhance water penetration resistance, it's advisable to choose models with fewer seams, as seams are vulnerable points where dirt and moisture can seep into the shoe.

Safety boots for significant moisture

If moisture levels are substantial, you may also consider models with an extended upper, such as safety boots or ranger-type safety shoes. These types of footwear cover a larger part of the leg, preventing rain and snow from entering.

Gore-Tex safety footwear for perfect waterproofing

For severe weather conditions, Gore-Tex safety footwear with a waterproof and breathable membrane can be an excellent alternative.

Certified as S7L, they are 100% waterproof, allowing you to keep your feet dry regardless of the weather conditions.

All-terrain outsole

The terrains faced by green space professionals are extremely challenging, sometimes wet, muddy, or rugged. Therefore, we recommend SRC or SR certified slip-resistant outsoles that offer optimal grip on a variety of surfaces, thus reducing the risk of slipping.

The tread depth should be sufficient to navigate more easily on muddy or uneven terrains.

A self-cleaning profile will help remove dirt from the outsole and further increase slip resistance.

Thermal insulation for winter conditions

In winter, gardeners and landscapers particularly appreciate fur-lined boots that provide additional protection against the cold.
