About

Delivering comfortable, durable work boots

Built on comfort

Our story began in Australia, and we’ve since grown to become Australia’s leading manufacturer of work and safety boots with subsidiaries in New Zealand, the USA and Europe. Since 1995, we’ve been putting the same amount of care, dedication and craft into our work as the tradespeople who wear our boots.

True skill requires great equipment. Our work boots are constructed from premium materials so that you can perform at your best. Our Trisole® Comfort Technology soling system is a foundation for your whole body. Every pair of our men’s and women’s work boots includes a 30-Day 100% Comfort Guarantee and our boots are endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA).

We’ve improved industry standards to keep you safe and we’re on a journey towards achieving social responsibility and sustainability to keep our planet safe.

As a manufacturer and wholesaler, we sell our safety boots to authorised Steel Blue Distributors so that you have more choices on where you can be fitted in the right boots for your craft.

We’ve improved industry standards to keep you safe

There’s a difference between getting the job done and being the best there can be. We began making comfortable work boots in 1995 and have made some significant advances in the safety footwear industry along the way. For us, it’s not about getting the job done, it’s about supporting those that wear safety and work boots every day. Our brag book includes product, safety, comfort and industry revolutions.

Product and safety advances for all work boot wearers:

  • Developed Trisole® Comfort Technology, a multilayer sole with extremely effective cushioning and shock absorption capability so that you can perform at your best
  • Set the benchmark across the safety industry by using PORON® within our Trisole® Comfort Technology
  • Collaborated with leading manufacturers to design custom pieces for our safety boots like our anti-chaff lining or our industrial grade zips for tradies who are in and out of houses all day
  • Offered an alternative to the Steel Toe Cap, our Composite Toe Caps are airport friendly and more lightweight than standard safety toe caps
  • Improved standards across the board by earning European Safety Footwear Certification CE EN ISO 20345 and USA Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2413 on our boots which encouraged other manufacturers to follow

Leading the way:

  • Received endorsement from the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) to keep your feet as well as your knees, hips and spine protected from stress-related injuries
  • Dedicated a range of colourful boots to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer Care WA and Beyond Blue
  • Set a 30-Day 100% Comfort Guarantee on all Steel Blue boots
