Milwaukee Tool is launching new safety footwear, dubbed Flextred and Armourtred.

Before you get too excited, you should know that the footwear line is launching in Europe. At this time, Milwaukee has no plans to release safety shoes in the USA.

The new lines do look competitive, with a bevy of competitive and interesting features, such as “Step-Release” heal for convenient shoe removal.

Milwaukee ArmourTred Work Boots

There are 14 different models in the pipeline, with a mix of shoes with and without safety toe caps.

The FlexTred models look to be designed for greater comfort with toe protection is not needed.

From some of the product descriptions, the ArmourTred products also have a “reinforced outsole with strong studs for best grip in demanding terrain.”

Some of the models feature BOA Fit System laces.

There’s even one style that’s not black and red – it’s a mid-height Nubuck leather work boot with soft toe and is ESD certified as with some of the other models.

It’s not unusual for tool companies to enter the safety footwear space; I’ve seen work boots from brands such as Diehard, CAT, Stanley, and Dewalt.

Thus, I’m not surprised to see Milwaukee launch their own line of work boots and safety footwear.

Why not here? I bet they’re going to keep a close eye on USA demand while asking the same question.

Personally, I think it’s only a matter of time before Milwaukee launches work boots and safety shoes here, unless there are obstacles I’m not aware of. After all, Milwaukee already has work pants, work shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, heated jackets, so many types of gloves, hats, hard hats, helmets, disposable respirators, ear plugs, and all kinds of attachments for their hard hats and helmets.

So why wouldn’t work boots and safety shoes work to complete the “from head to toe” gear selection?
