U-Power introduces new Red-Up High-Rebound safety shoe
Monday 1st April 2019
Innovative technology has enabled the use of High Rebound Elastopan®, a new material from BASF, in the PU intersole of the Red-Up. This pioneering technology ensures a return of over 40% of energy to the wearer over the entire surface of the foot.
Energy is regenerated and given back to the wearer to ensure better performance over time. The high-rebound, affordable, RedUp is also extremely flexible and lightweight, reducing fatigue and improving both posture and productivity.
Perfectly suited to industrial areas, the RedUp shoe comes as ESD, and features Elastopan® memory foam insoles, which take the shape of the foot and improve weight distribution and relieve pressure points, as standard.
Three styles also feature the ground-breaking revolutionary Hypertex Putek® technology, a breathable and water-repellent material that is 20 times more abrasion-resistant than traditional materials.
The Red-Up range of 25 different styles boasts all the high-quality protective and safety features that come with a U-Power product, offering excellent shock absorption, an aluminium safety toe cap and a non-metal pierce-resistant midsole. In addition, the Red-Up's slip-resistance far exceeds the requirements of the European Standards.
U-Power's Managing Director, Stuart Thorne, said: "The blend of softness, comfort, lightness, breathability and protection of the Red-Up shoe, plus the return of so much energy to the wearer, ensures a feeling of total wellbeing. Tiredness and fatigue are diminished, posture is improved, and productivity in the workplace boosted."
