Wideload 290BSC is what many of you have been waiting for!

A genuinely extra wide safety shoe with a composite, metal-free toe cap. Perfect for anyone who works in a security setting or needs a lighter safety boot. Tested to EN ISO 20345:2011 S1, SRC, HRO, FO

The new 290BSC airport-friendly composite cap is 10% (150 grams) lighter than its steel cap counterpart. The composite toecap provides less transmission of hot and cold while achieving “steel-like” safety for impact and compression. The cap meets ISO safety standards without compromising comfort.

Wide Load boots are designed and manufactured with a wide profile steel/composite cap designed specifically to meet the needs of those with wide feet. It is 12-15mm wider and 5mm higher than the industry ‘standard’, thus facilitating the fitting of custom-made orthotics and, more importantly, challenging feet.

The anatomically designed forefoot provides an additional 15% “footprint” compared to the industry standard. This additional surface area, combined with the self-cleaning cleat design outsole, provides maximum stability and enhanced slip resistance.

Walking can increase ground forces by up to 3 times body weight. The Wide Load bevelled heel strike and heel cushion zone help reduce shock and lessen the effects of these forces on the body.

If the shoe you purchased was not suitable then why not give us a call. We have over 30 years experience helping customers get the right footwear and we would be happy to advise you on another style, fitting or size that would be more suitable. 

A 6E fitting is an extra wide fitting, and one of our widest. It offers lots of width and extra depth in the toe area. A 6E fitting is recommended for those with serious foot conditions such as large bunions, gout and swollen feet, as well as those with extra wide feet. 

These width fittings are not available on the high street, even at well known wide fitting shops.

If you need an adjustable fit to accommodate swelling which changes over the day then we would recommend that you look for a V fitting such as a 6V fitting, which means the width can be adjusted, so you get the perfect fit all day long.
