The uvex i-PUREnrj two-layer outsole is made of a newly developed type of polyurethane. The midsole has an energy absorption of 40.8 joules, (i.e. double that required by the standard) while providing energy recovery of around 66% in the heel* and 59% in the forefoot*.

higher cushioning after 1000km use compared to standard polyurethane soles.*
Less fatigue. More comfort. More performance
less perceived fatigue compared to standard polyurethane soles.
Reduced Risk of Injuries.
Excellent stability and secure fit in the shoe due to foamed heel basket and adapted density of the uvex i-PUREnrj technology.
uvex x-tended grip Technology
100% performance. Greater safety and stability. Longer life.
The uvex x-tended grip technology, based on the latest generation TPU outsole, guarantees even greater slip resistance across the whole outsole surface including when worn on smooth or wet surfaces. It also delivers even more abrasion resistance when compared to the standard, making them particularly durable. As a result the wearer experiences greater safety, stability, less wear and consequently lower costs thanks to a longer service life.
The coloured blocks in the heel (strike) and toe area (push off), provide additional grip as this is where there is typically the highest amount of abrasion.
Less abrasion ensures a longer life
Abrasion resistance with
uvex x-tended grip
more abrasion resistance than required by the standard
Improved abrasion resistance in
high wear zones (the heel and toe)
more abrasion resistance compared to the standard = product durability and longevity
Improved abrasion resistance
in 3 zones
1. TPU material and rubber modifier
2. TPU material
3. TPU material and rubber modifier
The TPU sole and rubber modified coloured zones (where there is typically more wear) have been produced to ensure the tread stays sharp edged for longer and is more slip resistant improving safety and stability.
The tread of the outsole with uvex x-tended grip technology has been specifically adapted to working on industrial floors. Shaped in accordance with the latest findings from biomechanical research and using the latest generation of TPU, the sole of the uvex 1 G2 is guaranteed to deliver even greater abrasion resistance and slip resistance on smooth or wet surfaces. The result? Greater safety and stability for the wearer; less wear and, consequently, lower costs thanks to a more durable, longer service life of the footwear.
uvex x-dry knit Technology
