Features of the Southern Cross Zip

Our Southern Cross Zip is an S3 safety boot made from premium leather and features:

  • Quick zip release with Velcro tab to stop zip rattle
  • 200J Steel Toe Cap for ultimate safety
  • Scuff Cap provides longer lasting protection of the premium leather
  • Durable and Slip Resistant TPU Outsole with 130°C heat resistance
  • Trisole® Comfort Technology cushions from day-to-day fatigue

The Slate boot incorporates all the technology and fit from current Southern Cross Zip design in a fashionable new colour that appeals to all trades.

Based on feedback we found young, fashion-conscious tradespeople prefer trendy, neutral tone colours in their work boots to compliment their work apparel; a growing trend from leading workwear brands. The new offering includes key stylistic features to make a fresh work boot for tradespeople.
