Oxide 2 is a men’s anti-static safety work boot that prevents the build-up of static electricity within your body by dissipating it through the sole.
The heavy-duty side zip allows for ease of access whilst the high-quality full-grain leather offers a water-resistant upper.
Engineered with a premium dual-density polyurethane midsole, the outside layer is firm for abrasion resistance whilst the inside is super-soft to make it our most cushioned work boot yet.
The Oxide also features an SRC rated slip-resistant outsole.
The Oxide boot complies with:
Australian and New Zealand Safety Footwear Standard AS/NZS 2210.3-2019 S1 HRO-HI-CI-SRC
Antistatic Footwear: Static electricity finds ground through the boots. The purpose being to prevent build up of enough static electricity to cause a spark. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Additional Classification. Antistatic Footwear. After conditioning in a dry and wet atmosphere, the electrical resistance is above 100kΩ and less than or equal to 1000kΩ.
Insulation of Sole Against Cold – Temperature insulation for your feet when working in cold environments. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Additional Classification. Insulation of Sole Against Cold. Inside of shoe is insulated against cold when put in a cold box at minus 17ºC for 30 minutes.
Energy Absorption – Superior shock absorption under the heel. See ‘Cushioning’ below for more details. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Additional Classification. Energy Absorption of Seat Region. Passes the test for shock absorption under the heel.
Insulation of Sole Against Heat – Temperature insulation for your feet when working in hot environments. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Additional Classification. Insulation of Sole Against Heat. Inside of shoe is insulated against heat when put in a sandbath at approximately 150C.
Resistant to Hot Contact (300ºC) – Ideal for people occasionally stepping on hot surfaces/objects while working. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Additional Classification. Resistance to Hot Contact. Outsole does not melt, char, crack or craze when coming in contact with 300ºC surface for one minute.
Slip Resistant with Oil on Metal, and with Water on TilesProvides sufficient slip resistance to prevent a fall when working on a low friction surface such as oil spilled on metal, or on soapy wet tiles. This is the highest level of slip resistance. Australian Standards 2210.3:2019 Additional Classification. Glycerol (oil) on steel floor test. Slip resistance coefficient only heel contact is > 0.13, and slip resistance coefficient with whole shoe flat contact is > 0.18. SLS (soapy water) solution on ceramic tile test. Slip resistance coefficient only heel contact is > 0.28, and slip resistance coefficient with whole shoe flat contact is > 0.32. Slip Resistant with Oil on Metal, and with Water on Tiles.
Safety Toe 1.5 ton Compression – Protects toes by providing a minimum clearance when something runs over them. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Standard. Compression test where a 15kN force is gradually applied to the toe, tested by an independent and authorised laboratory and then certified by SAI Global.
Safety Toe 200 Joules Impact – Protects toes by providing a minimum clearance when a large object falls on it. Australian Standards 2210.3:2009 Standard. Tested with a drop strike test machine with a 200 Joule force by an independent and authorised laboratory and then certified by SAI Global. Note that the Australian standard is higher than the US standard.
Oil Resistant Rubber – Oil and abrasion resistant. Specially formulated vulcanized rubber, custom shaped with a tread pattern
Arch Support Insole (PU) – Arch support insole with increased arch support and more cushioning. Longer lasting than other insole materials. Removable, and so able to be replaced with orthotics if needed. Polyurethane sponge formed to cup around the heel and under the arch (thicker under the arch than our normal arch support insole providing more support).
BUNGEE™ – Provides great energy return over a long period, so that the spring stays in your step no matter how far you walk or run. Bouncy elastic sponge material.
PORON® – High shock absorption, low compression (long lasting cushioning). Specially formulated foam material by PORON.
PU – Provides and excellent balance of shock absorption (cushioning) and energy return (rebound). These cushioning and rebound properties are longer lasting than other cushioning foams. Polyurethane sponge.
CRIB™ Midfoot Stabiliser – Supports the arch area of the foot (midfoot), and reduces stress on the ligaments that often cause fatigue and pain. Hard, moulded thermoplastic (TPU or Nylon) or hardened rubber.
Dual Density – Restricts harmful over-pronation (foot rolling inwards and arch collapsing). On stability trainers, it also provides lateral stability (restricts ankle roll) in typical side-to-side motion dynamics in court and grass sports. A firmer density midsole foam.
ExoFrame – Supports the ankle and holds the heel firmly in place, providing excellent stability when the foot first strikes the ground. A firm heel counter is essential for fundamental support and stability. Rigid plastic material that is shaped to match the contours of your heel.
Composite Safety Toe Cap – 200 Joule impact & compression protection. Lighter than steel and provides superior insulation properties. Airport friendly. Epoxy fibreglass. Complies with all the Australian standards for Type 1 impact resistance and compression resistance (AS/NZS 2210.3:2009).
DRILEX® Lining – Wicks sweat away from the foot, and its anti-bacterial properties control odour inside the shoe. Specially treated textile lining (patented technology by DRILEX).
Full Grain Leather – Hard wearing and breathable, becoming richer and deeper with wear, molding and adapting to your foot like no other material. Resistant to high temperatures, resistant to tearing, cracking, and peeling. It’s naturally insulating, but also breathable. Natural full grain cow hide, tanned and dyed through with authentic techniques. This is the premium grade of leather.
TPU Scuff Cap – Prevents holes forming in the toe of the work boot from scuffing and exposing the safety cap. For tough work environments. Moulded thermoplastic urethane cap over the top of the leather upper.
YKK Heavy Duty Zip – Quick on-off capability for ease of wear and removal in case of emergency. Lacing system still allows complete fit adjustability. #10 gauge YKK zip with composite metal pull tab and duralon nylon anti-fouling zip teeth system
