uvex waterstop technology
There is nothing more uncomfortable or unpleasant than wet feet when you are trying to concentrate on the job. Safety footwear intended to be worn outdoors and in rugged environments must protect against the elements. Wet or damp feet causes friction leading to rubbing, sores and potentially blisters. Not only is this a painful distraction, dampness within the shoe or boot creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria which can lead to rashes, fungus and issues like Athletes Foot.
uvex waterstop technology is designed to keep feet dry and it’s performance lasts four times longer than that required by the standard for S3 safety footwear - that states footwear must be water-resistant to achieve this rating.
uvex i-PUREnrj technology - Cushioning. Stability. Energy Return.
uvex’s innovative new polyurethane sole technology – i-PUREnrj – returns the landing energy over the entire sole unit back to the wearer. The sole of the uvex 3 features anti-fatigue technology which returns 68% of the energy in the forefoot area, 65% energy return under the heel and has a shock absorption level of 44 joules, 2.2 times higher than specified by the standard, supporting the musculoskeletal system.
The lighter the footwear, the greater the shock absorption and energy returned means that the muscles in the foot, leg and back must work less hard, reducing strain and allowing performance to be maintained for longer. uvex safety footwear provides both cushioning and a stable footing reducing stresses on the body.
More stability. Reduced risk of injuries. More safety
The uvex i-PUREnrj technology helps reduce the risk of ankle twisting and injury

Maximum performance thanks to the bionom x design philosophy
The uvex bionom x design philosophy creates biomechanical synergy between the foot, the upper, the sole and the ground.
Taking a holistic approach to all four elements creates a harmonious unit consisting of the body, the footwear and the environment. Only when our body achieves its maximum performance level can it protect us from injury in the best possible way. uvex bionom x was developed in collaboration with our biomechanic expert Dr Caleb Wegener from the uvex safety group in Australia.
- Seams have been minimised to avoid pressure on tendons and nerves.
- Compression and expansion zones provide increased comfort.
- Ergonomic profile adapted to the anatomical structure of the foot.
- Functional flex grooves provide mobility and slip resistance.
