The Spartan has an Inyati PU/Rubber sole unit, offering high heat resistance, cut and abrasion resistance, and is SRC rated for slip resistance. This shoe is ideal for the construction industry. The vamp lining is made from a special needled Hi-Tech Fibre blend which has excellent perspiration absorbency. This results in a low heat build-up and more comfort for the wearer. The collar padding material is from closed cell foam for superior comfort and support. A special “Spat/Metatarsal” Guard protects the instep area of the foot to prevent or minimize injury to the wearer.
