uvex female last for safety footwear

Safety footwear designed for the female foot

Women have a lighter bone weight, with softer and more flexible joints. These physiological differences translate to differences in footwear design, particularly with safety shoes. Simply reducing the male product size for females is not sufficient, therefore, the uvex 1 ladies footwear has been designed using a special last.

All uvex 1 models are available in a female fitting, where these models have been manufactured specifically for the shape and contours of the female foot, delivering the perfect fit.

uvex 1 safety footwear has been designed specifically to combat fatigue and offer long-term comfort to the wearer. A lower weight reduces the strain on the body and also reduces risk of injury.
