To make a waterproof safety boot that fits, we created the WedgeTech™ Personalised Lock-Fit System.
Our patented system locks the foot into a stable position in the boot. The wedge is inserted in the boot at the front of the ankle.
Which limits excess movement – creating a firm and secure fit.
Because no two feet and legs are the same, each pair of Crawford Boots comes with six inserts – for a personalised fit.
Why did I need to build this boot?
Your feet are your foundations and you need proper stable support. Poorly supporting footwear results in
foot, leg and back muscle fatigue and aches and pains
loss of balance
more ankle injuries
increased chance of slips and trips
discomfort affecting work performance
Let’s consider the above effects in an average underground miner's shift of walking more than 10km per shift through knee high water on uneven ground and you will understand why I needed to build a better boot.
