More than you expect

More than you expect

A safety shoe is a safety shoe – no more, no less… Not quite, it can be so much more.

A discount without requesting it. Your online shopping order delivered two days early. Parking right in front of the shops. An upgrade to business class.

What do these things have in common? They are all more than you expected.

This, according to BBF Safety Group, is what defines the new Lemaitre range of shoes. The company says that, with the introduction of the Maximus boot and the Spartacus shoe, Lemaitre has “set a new standard in general-purpose safety footwear by bringing customers more of the things that matter to them. More comfort. More innovation. More durability. More quality”.

Maxeco – and more

With product design guided and inspired by Lemaitre’s top-selling Maxeco safety boot and Robust shoe, Maximus and Spartacus sport the features that made Maxeco a household name in general-purpose safety footwear – as well as various product enhancements and innovations.

According to BBF Safety Group, Lemaitre has taken the best of Maxeco – a product that has sold more than 8,7-million pairs since its inception in 1991 – and added more of the features that address the needs of today’s customers. These include updated styling, an added leather collar, reflective strips, a wider sole unit and a host of other enhancements for improved wearer comfort and safety.

More Key features

• Comfort: Maximus and Spartacus have several features to enhance wearer comfort. These include a lighter sole unit, a padded leather collar that provides ankle support and a heel-grip counter lining to prevent the shoe from slipping off.

• Durability: Full-leather uppers allow the wearer’s feet to breathe and increase the durability and longevity of the product. This enables the employer to extract maximum value from the investment in workplace safety footwear.  

• Quality: Maximus and Spartacus are locally manufactured in an ISO 9001 factory and bear the SANS 20345 quality mark.

• Safety: A sole design that is wider by three millimetres provides increased wearer comfort, improved slip resistance, better stability and reduced shock impact. In addition, a bellows tongue prevents dirt, liquid and foreign objects from entering the shoe, and D-rings allow for quick and easy lacing and unlacing.

The inclusion of a reflective insert further enhances the wearer’s visibility in evening conditions.  

BBF Safety Group says that the Maximus safety boot and Spartacus safety shoe provide an ideal solution for clients who require protection for an array of environments and applications.

Maximus and Spartacus are available in sizes three to 13 and can be purchased from authorised BBF Safety Group distributors nationwide.
