Shoe development
State-of-the-art safety shoes

The key to success is interdisciplinary collaboration. Worldwide, Baak develops shoes in cooperation with many specialists, e.g. from the sports shoe industry, shoe orthopedics and biomechanics.

The aim

With this know-how transfer, we want to keep on expanding our advantage in technology for the good of the safety shoe wearer.
The main task is the long-term maintenance of the wearer’s health, considering the individual requirements in his job.

As a safety shoe expert, Baak is, of course in permanent exchange with specialists of various specific areas, such as ESD, the supply industry, testing and certificating institutes. And since its foundation, Baak has been a member of the German Standards Committee (Deutscher Normenausschuss).

We are especially delighted about the collaboration with Prof. Dr. Gert-Peter Brüggemann who stregthens our competence team “Feel good at work”.

Natural and functional foot load distribution

The shapes of the Baak® flex cap and the Baak® flex zone in the outsole are optimally suited to the foot and based on the natural bending line of the basic toe joints. Therefore, a safety shoe with the Baak® go&relax system, unlike a common safety shoe, bends in a way that is optimally suited to the foot’s function. The foot is able to move in a natural and biomechanically correct manner. One of the world’s leading biomechanists, Prof. Dr. Gert-Peter Brüggemann, was involved in the development of the Baak® go&relax system to a considerable extent.

Always stay fit

The Baak® go&relax system distributes the load optimally over all muscles and joints involved – with every step. The feet, muscles and joints stay fit. That relieves pressure on the entire musculoskeletal system. Unequal load distributions are prevented successfully. Walking is really comfortable. A shoe should always allow the foot to do what it wants to do naturally. Therefore, for people who wear safety shoes for many hours a day, a natural and functional foot load distribution is of particular importance. A useful contribution to company health management.
