Making sure that your shoe fits you well.

Every foot is very individual. This is true not only for the foot's length but also for its width. About half of all human beings (50%) have feet of average width, 45% have extra-wide feet and 5% have narrow ones.

Which Baak series for what type of foot?

Toe protection caps for safety shoes have to resist a shock energy of 200 joules according to standard EN 20345:2011. Baak utilizes toe caps made of 3 different materials: steel, aluminium and composite.

Different materials for different needs

The soles of our safety shoes consist of two layers that serve different purposes: the midsole and the outsole. The midsole is soft and elastic. It provides good damping and reduces stress on the joints. The outsole is harder and resistant to mechanical and thermal influences. It is also slip-resistant and as abrasion-resistant as possible. The profile layout and the bending behaviour are among the decisive factors that allow the foot to roll over.

With the electronic footprint measurement (pedography), the pressure load on the foot during its roll movement (from heel to the outer ball to the big toe) is displayed in different colors. The colors green and blue show a small, red and yellow a big pressure load. The lower the pressure load, the lower the stress on the whole musculoskeletal system of the human being.

Footprint measurement

In order to ensure a penetration resistance according to the standard, two different types of material are used: on the one hand, it is the common steel midsole, on the other hand, for a couple of years, it has also been the textile penetration resistance.

Waterproof shoes from Baak are equipped with a membrane from Sympatex:
