New products and projects

CasualGrip range – The sport safety shoes

This range has been made for those who want footwear that not only protect but are also stylish, flexible, light and comfortable.

The CasualGrip shoes include an innovative system: the upper is made with injected PU textile and the sole is thermo-injected. As there are no stitches, the CasualGrip are sturdier (sport shoes are usually made with welded soles but go through removal soles problems). The upper is as well made of breathing lining & flexible materials.

The CasualGrip sole is composed of PU2D/TPU to give sophisticated design, lightness, fineness & grip – to ensure an advanced technology sole.

FlowerGrip range - Health & Cleaning shoes for ladies

This range of occupational shoes for ladies is specially made for women's feet anatomy.

They are ESD, ultra-light, antibacterial treated and meet professional environments with their slip resistant outsole & shock absorption outsole.

The grip is total on wet or slippery surfaces. Those shoes are made of easy to wash microfiber. They are comfortable thanks to the large space on the forefoot.

The FlowerGrip sole is composed of expanded PU for more lightness and total grip. A removable thermoformed footbed provides perfect comfort and hygiene (can be washed with soapy water up to 30°C).

Millenium Full Protect from Gaston Mille - The ultimate safety overshoes

These overshoes tick all the boxes: safety, comfort and lifespan.

The safety toe-caps will protect your worker’s toes from impact, tested to 200 J. In addition, the overshoes feature SRC slip-resistant soles and a penetration-resistant midsole (up to 1100N).

Made of flexible material, these overshoes are comfortable.

What's more, Millenium Full Protect overshoes can be washed by hand, making them perfect for short uses.
