Elten was founded in 1910, more than a hundred years ago, by Johann van Elten in Uedem on the Lower Rhine. He revolutionized the shoe market at that time by producing work shoes made of leather instead of wood, which had been the norm until then. After many further innovations in the field of safety footwear, Elten GmbH now employs over 350 people and has an annual production of approximately 2.8 million pairs of shoes.
What distinguishes Elten safety shoes?
In the last decades not only the company Elten grew, but also the progress in the production of safety shoes. What started back then with simple leather shoes is continued today with technologies like WELLMAXX cushioning, the patented Elten Safety-Grip sole or the Biomex Protection. In addition, many safety shoes can be orthopedically modified in accordance with DGUV regulation 112-191. The modification of the fit ensures comfortable wear on the foot and provides optimal work protection. In 2015, the Wellmaxx series was launched. This offers the wearer a revolutionary cushioning sole core, made from INFINERGY® from BASF. In addition, Elten uses many other practical components such as the BOA closure system, which replaces conventional laces. Among other things, Elten also offers a variety of ESD-capable safety shoes, which not only protect people but also electrostatically sensitive components.
Elten - Safety and Style
While other manufacturers focus "only" on making their shoes as safe as possible on the foot, Elten safety shoes - in addition to occupational safety - also pay attention to fashion aspects. As a result, not only safe, but also stylish safety shoes are produced. For this purpose, the L10 series was introduced in 2011, and in addition, the Maverick series was recently released. While the L10 safety shoes shine with chic jeans look quite oldschool, the Mavericks safety shoes offer a sporty sneaker look! So you can also be seen outside of work, in your work shoes. Another foot protection comes in the form of a stylish safety sandal, which is available in many different designs. The airy version of a safety shoe offers a pleasant foot climate. All models of the Elten brand are offered in the certified safety classes.
Foot support with Elten insoles
The ideal fit of the shoe guarantees that even hours of wear will not be torture for the foot. However, over time, it may come to foot discomfort when working. Therefore, the company Elten offers insoles for foot support. There is a wide variety of foot shapes, but three profiles are particularly common. These are the hollow foot (too high longitudinal arch), normal foot (intact longitudinal arch) and flat foot (too flat longitudinal arch). To increase wearing comfort and alleviate pain, the respective insoles provide individual cushioning and optimal weight distribution..
