Technical questions

High or low safety shoe?

A high shoe offers extra protection for your ankles and is generally warmer for your feet.

What is ESD?

ESD stands for ‘ElectroStatic Discharge’, and ESD-protected shoes prevent or at least limit electrostatic discharge and contribute to diverting any charge that may be generated in a controlled manner. Under certain conditions, anti-static shoes have an electrical resistance of 0.1-35M Ohm. Under the same conditions, ESD shoes have a much lower resistance.

Friction can generate static electricity, and this can lead to uncomfortable or even dangerous static discharge. Electronic components are becoming increasingly more sensitive to static discharge.

ESD shoes and socks from Bata can contribute to making this type of situation more manageable.

Why do I need a steel toecap?

A steel toecap protects your toes from heavy falling or rolling objects.

Why do I need an anti-perforation mid-sole (steel or synthetics mid-sole)?

A steel mid-sole in the shoe provides protection from perforation or the penetration of sharp or hot objects through the outsole. Bata also has shoes with a synthetic (lenzi) anti-perforation mid-sole. This is used as an alternative to steel, yet is lighter, more flexible and offers better insulation. Both materials satisfy the norm, but steel generally offers the best protection.
