Solid Gear’s Hydra GTX trainer-style safety shoe

The new Solid Gear Hydra GTX is a highly technical trainer-style safety shoe that integrates “modern design with best-in-class materials for water protection, durability and a sporty look.”

The shoe also features a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex lining, Vibram outsole and Cordura ripstop fabric for protection and ruggedness. The unique BOA Closure System – used on many top-brand sports shoes – distributes the pressure of the fastened shoe evenly across the person’s feet to ensure a glove-like fit all day maximum comfortable protection.

“Nowadays, good safety shoes are part and parcel of a day’s work on site – just like good working clothes and quality hand tools. It really isn’t worth wearing cheap boots that make your feet feel as though they’ve been in leaden diving boots all day. That’s why it’s important to choose a shoe that has three key features – protection, comfort and durability,” comments Snickers Workwear, the UK stockists of the Solid Gear brand.
