Our passion for high quality boots and shoes brings a combination of manufacturing experience and innovative design to all the footwear we make. We use a wide variety of constructions in our ranges depending on the style and purpose of the products. Our footwear is designed to provide optimum comfort and durability for all day wear.

The Zephyr Workgear range is designed by our in-house design team based in the UK, who work closely with the Technical team to ensure our range not only looks and feels great, but is suitable for its intended purpose and conforms to the relevant safety standards. Zephyr Workgear’s Technical Manager is a member of the CEN/TC161 European Safety Standards Committee for foot & leg protectors and has an active involvement and influence in setting EN ISO standards so you can rest assured that at Zephyr Workgear we are always fully knowledgeable of and compliant with the most up-to-date safety standards.

Design & Manufacture

Zephyr Workgear’s in-house design team based at our Wellingborough office, works continuously to develop new and innovative designs and features to ensure that our footwear pushes boundaries in terms of both style and real benefits to the user, such as the ARZ Gel Heel Insert which absorbs impact energy during wear. It provides significant improvements in comfort, assisting in protecting the heel area from injury and helping to reduce fatigue.

The Zephyr Workgear design team have industry leading manufacturing know-how and knowledge of European trends on styles and materials to ensure we stay at the forefront of the industry. Regular sourcing trips give us access to new materials and competitive pricing.

Outsoles

We design our soles to provide optimum performance and durability for our customers. All of our outsoles comply with the highest category of slip resistance (SRC) after being tested on both a steel floor with Gycerol lubricant and on a ceramic floor with Sodium Lauryl Sulphate lubricant.

Quality & Testing

Zephyr Workgear takes a great deal of pride in providing outstanding products that utilise top quality materials and that also undergo stringent quality testing procedures. With our own specialist team of quality control staff, we are strategically positioned to enforce effective quality control procedures, with processes in place that incorporate sampling, materials intake control and online checking to ensure compliance with technical and quality standards.
