Heckel was founded in 1870 in La Walck, France, and initially manufactured football boots, motorcycle boots and ski boots, eventually specialising in safety shoes. Heckel has belonged to the uvex safety group since 2001 and continues to be managed by it as an independent brand.
Heckel's special strength lies in the processing of rubber for ground-breaking sole technologies using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Safety shoes from Heckel prove themselves in the real world; at steel works, on ships and in the mountains, on large construction sites, in trade and in logistics. They are non-slip, withstand extreme conditions and have a strong focus on style. Depending on the requirements, Heckel safety shoes protect the feet against injuries and chemicals, but also against heat, cold and wet.
