Dunlop® Protective Footwear

What you should know about us

We are Dunlop® Protective Footwear, the leading global manufacturer of protective footwear. In more than 50 countries worldwide, we provide comfortable and protective footwear for you, the workers in Agriculture & Fishery, Food processing, Industry and the Oil, Gas & Mining industry. Our continuous innovation combined with a solid dose of handcraft, makes the best working boot in the world. To give you the safety and comfort you deserve.

What we do

At Dunlop we design, develop and manufacture all of our high quality waterproof boots ourselves. In this process, we depend on you. When you are a farmer, safety means something else for you than when you are a construction builder. Working in a food processing plant requires other footwear than working on an oil platform. We understand that. So we developed boots especially for you. We look at you, listen to you and invest in continuous innovation, embracing original expertise with new technology. Our boots are characterized by comfort, innovation, and protection. We bring these three key features together to bring you unique, professional footwear that gives you the safety and comfort you deserve. See our movie for a good impression of our business.

Where we come from

Where we come from

Years of tradition precede the current Dunlop boot. Our history goes back to 1888, when a Scottish veterinarian names John Boyd Dunlop had a simple idea that changed the world.

Where we go to

It’s in our DNA to care for our people, our planet and our profit. As the largest manufacturer of boots we have a responsibility to show leadership in our industry. Dunlop Protective Footwear exists for more than 120 years. The time has come to decide what the next 120 years will look like. We believe that closing the loop for the materials in our value chain is the way forward for Dunlop. Circularity and profitability go hand in hand. Therefore we don’t want to let any of our precious materials go to waste. For the next generation, circularity is not just a ‘nice to have’ but a ‘need to have’. As a leader in the industry we are committed to take responsibility in the transition towards circularity.
