Anti-fatigue safety footwear boosts energy

Italian safety shoe manufacturer U-Power has further boosted its innovative energy-return footwear range with the launch of Red-Up Plus.

The shoes contain an anti-fatigue insert in the heel of the shoe which return energy to the wearer.

The inserts are made from High Rebound Elastopan from BASF which uses the same material as used in anti-fatigue matting.

The shoe stimulates the foot to continually revitalise blood circulation and energy through the legs and feet, so eases fatigue and positively affects the whole body, relieving neck, back, leg and joint pain.

The Red-Up Plus absorbs stress on the body and ensures a return of over 40% of energy to the wearer over the entire surface of the foot.

Although they look like the latest trainers, the stylish and flexible super-lightweight Red-Up Plus shoes hide a multitude of protective and safety features, such as an aluminium safety toe cap, a non-metal pierce-resistant midsole, a honeycombed lining providing the best possible breathability, and very high slip resistance.

Several of the 18 different available models of Red-Up Plus are also incredibly resistant to scratches and abrasion, featuring cutting-edge Hypertex Putek technology on the uppers, a breathable and water-repellent material that is 20 times more abrasion-resistant than traditional materials.

U-Power’s Managing Director, Stuart Thorne, said: “The Red-Up Plus is suitable for any kind of working environment.

“It provides the wearer with a high level of both walking and standing comfort, lightness, breathability and protection on any surface, including hard floors.

“The Red-Up Plus is one of the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever put on your feet. It returns so much energy that you will feel a sense of total wellbeing. With a choice of 18 different styles and colours, there is a Red-Up Plus to suit everyone.”
