New footwear families

Finding the right footwear is easier than ever with our new families

As well as rebranding Blackrock, we’ve been working hard to make it quicker and easier for you identify the right footwear for your requirements. All our footwear styles have been divided into families, grouped around a key function:

  • Dry - all Dry styles are fully waterproof, with a membrane impermeable to water engineered into the upper to ensure your feet stay dry even when you’re standing in water, not just splashing through it.
  • Light - metal-free is what defines Light: protective toe caps and midsoles are made from composite materials, which are lighter than traditional steel and help reduce fatigue, especially during extended periods of wear.
  • Clean - our range of hygiene footwear for cleanroom environments such as food preparation, medical and pharmaceutical has microfibre uppers that can be machine washed at 40°C
  • Work - our newest range, comprising Tactical and Occupational footwear for the emergency services, transport, security and postal sectors
  • Classic - the foundation of the footwear range, including timeless styles such as chukka, dealer and rigger boots, that all have toe cap and midsole as standard

These new families are great, it's even easier now to find what we need, and quickly. I love the 360 degree images as well, you can see what the whole of the boot looks like - even down to whether the branding shows for our uniform wearers.
