Innovating for you

Besides protecting you from injuries during work, your boots should give you the comfort you need to be standing and walking all day long. At Dunlop® we develop and manufacture high quality boots, combining original expertise with new technologies. Our technicians and Innovation team are always on the lookout for new technologies and materials, to make sure you get the comfort and protection you deserve. Learn more about the technologies that make your Dunlop boots unique, safe and comfortable.

PUROFORT®

35 years ago, Dunlop reinvented rubber and made a boot out of Purofort. This unique Dunlop material has millions of evenly distributed air pockets, making it lightweight and thermally insulating. The cross-linked structure provides flexibility and strength, giving you protection and comfort while making your boots tear and wear resistant. Once you’ve tried a Purofort boot, you’ll never want something else. Promised.

ACIFORT®

Acifort is Dunlop’s unique invention of PVC, nitrile rubber and polymers. Nitrile rubber ensures a longer lifetime and better resistance to oil, fat, blood and chemicals. Polymers add flexibility to your boot, thereby increasing comfort. For each individual industry Dunlop developed special Acifort boots, to give you the comfort and protection you deserve.

Safety Standards

Global safety standards

Your boots should give you maximum protection. Protection against cold, against slipping and tripping, against mud, oil, manure, chemicals or animal hooves.
Dunlop boots are engineered to meet the safety requirements in specific environments, and they comply with the highest international safety standards. To ensure this, we work with leading independent institutes such as TÜV Rheinland, HSL, ASTM, CSA and SATRA.

VIBRAM®

When your work involves walking on uneven and slippery surfaces and climbing scaffolding, you need the right safety boot that gives you the ultimate grip. Especially for the workers in the upstream oil sector and general industry, we’ve partnered up with Vibram to give you the best safety boot, combining our comfortable Purofort technology with a Vibram outsole.

Lining

Seamless Lining

To make Dunlop boots as comfortable as possible, we pay a lot of attention to the lining. By welding our antibacterial and odour controlling lining ultrasonically, every boot has a perfect finish, without uncomfortable seams that might ruin your socks. You can recognize our seamless lining technology by the red or black Dunlop branded lining.

Dunlop Comfort Fit

Years of investing in last technology has led to the Dunlop Comfort Fit: the perfect fit of our Purofort®boots, combined with easy entry and exit of your boots. This perfect fit, recognized and praised a lot by our customers, is possible because of the extreme flexibility of our Purofort material. And with specially developed lasts for women’s and children’s feet, Dunlop boots give comfort to everyone.

Protective outsole technology

Protective Outsole Technology

Your boots should give you ultimate protection. This is impacted a lot by the performance of your outsoles. As slipping and tripping occurs mostly during walking when landing on your heel and taking off from your toes, we pay special attention to these areas.

That’s why we design outsoles that exceed your requirements on slip resistance and grip. Dunlop outsoles are additionally dirt repellent and wear resistant, assuring a long life time of your boots.
