Southern Cross® GraphTEC™ Zip with Graphene Scuff Cap & Outsole
The Southern Cross® Zip GraphTEC™ is a world first PureGRAPH® Graphene enhanced work boot. Graphene is one of the strongest impermeable semi-metals discovered to date. PureGRAPH® Graphene has been independently tested, with results showing an increase of over 200% in abrasion resistance. Steel Blue’s GraphTEC™ range is designed, developed and made in Australia.
The Southern Cross® Zip GraphTEC™ is a Men’s ankle height, Zip Sided work boot that includes a GraphTEC™ enhanced Scuff Cap and Outsole. The addition of Graphene in the durable TPU Outsole and Scuff Cap provides world leading durability, abrasion resistance and strength. Tests show that Graphene is one million times thinner than a piece of paper, superior in strength to diamonds and 200 times stronger than steel.
This safety boot is crafted from premium Water Resistant Leather and is a popular choice for Construction, Mining and Civil Engineering. The padded collar and tongue offer all day comfort, while the quick release side zip provides convenience. The durable TPU Outsole includes Anti-Static properties, is heat resistant to 130ºC and offers Slip & Oil Resistance.
All Steel Blue boots feature Trisole® Comfort Technology which cushions your feet, knees, hips and lower back from day-to-day fatigue. We stand behind the comfort and quality of our work boots with our 30-Day 100% Comfort Guarantee.
The Southern Cross® Zip GraphTEC™ is made from premium leather that has been ethically and environmentally sourced and is available in Black Full Grain or Wheat coloured Nubuck Leather.

A soft, non-abrasive, hydrophobic material that wicks perspiration away from the foot, enabling the skin to remain cool and dry.
Ortho Rebound® Footbed
Our patented Ortho Rebound® Footbed is uniquely designed to reduce foot fatigue. Made from high quality Polyurethane, it always retains its shape and thickness to ensure support from heel to toe, is antifungal, and the high wicking material keeps your feet cool and dry.
Strategically placed high-tech Poron® pads are placed in the sole and under your foot’s peak stress areas. We included Poron® in our Trisole® Comfort Technology, which is now the benchmark for safety boots.
