uvex: PPE trainer 

uvex has launched a trainer designed to combine PPE functionality with the fit, comfort and style of leisure footwear. 

The uvex 1 trainer has been designed to provide support, anti-fatigue shock absorption, and high levels of slip-resistance, with breathable, flexible, ultra-lightweight materials. The company says the trainer’s sleek design has been inspired by high-street fashion to help encourage maximum PPE compliance. 

Clair Weston, head of marketing at uvex, said: “We often forget that looking after our feet can prevent difficulties throughout the body. The uvex 1 trainer provides excellent comfort and protection for those working on hard surfaces in manufacturing, warehousing and logistics, automotive and airport environments. It’s also a good-looking shoe that can transition between work and leisure so helps to increase compliance and improve wearer wellbeing.” 

The trainer features a metal-free, highly flexible, penetration-resistant midsole, and meets the ESD specification with volume resistance under 35 megaohms. Made from synthetic materials, uvex says the uvex 1 trainer is suitable for people allergic to chrome.  

Available in black or blue, the uvex 1 trainer also includes elastic ‘speed’ laces that allow the shoes to be individually and quickly adjusted, slipped on or off as well as a pull tab that offers an easy on-off fit. A reflective element on the logo and pull tab, meanwhile, enhances wearers’ visibility.
