A safer way to walk on ice

Leading edge technology for advanced traction on ice.

ICEFX® has an innovative tread design to provide greater surface contact in the heel and forefoot to achieve an anti-slip outsole. A softer, more flexible rubber compound in the outsole does not harden in the cold and gripping pods enhance traction. ICEFX® may also utilize other compounds or materials in the outsole of our casual and industrial footwear to help achieve slip resistance on ice.

DISCLAIMER: ICEFX® provides enhanced traction on ice but does not guarantee slips will not occur under any circumstances. Care should always be taken when walking on ice.

The bio-ceramic technology is mineral based and very durable.

A safer way to walk

Casual and Industrial footwear with our TARANTULA ANTISLIP® outsoles provide the ultimate in slip protection by reducing the likelihood that you’ll slip or fall on wet and/or greasy surfaces. Our anti-slip outsoles have a unique tread pattern and compound to increase friction and push liquids from underfoot, providing incredible grip to resist slipping on most surfaces including wet, soapy, oily and greasy surfaces.

DISCLAIMER: This footwear has been tested for wet and dry conditions. It has not been tested for use on any type of ice.


Maximum grip performance on icy surfaces

TARANTULA® TRACTION ON DEMAND is an advanced and durable retractable spike technology made with the strongest tungsten carbide materials used in our casual and industrial shoes and boots. The spikes are deployed and retracted on demand with the turn of a handle for convenience, to maximize footwear grip performance on icy surfaces.

DISCLAIMER: These retractable spikes are intended for outdoor use. The spikes are specifically designed to bite into ice but will also bite into indoor surfaces. Please ensure to retract the spikes before going indoors.


Adaptive heel increases surface contact to improve traction

This special outsole in our work boots and safety shoes was developed and engineered with a unique technology built into the heel of the outsole to provide additional grip. Since the first point of contact with any surface is the heel, the softer rubber compound in the heel adapts, compresses and spreads to provide more surface contact and grip when you walk. More surface contact generally means more slip resistance and will keep you safely on your feet.
