Sole Shapes

At Sisi, we offer 14 styles of safety footwear, extending across 2 sole shapes, tailored for women with narrow and standard-shaped feet.

Narrow Soles:

This shape is considerate of women with narrow shaped feet. For these women, wearing ill-fitting men’s shoes could pose a potential hazard in the event that the foot slips out of the shoe during work. Furthermore, ill-fitting footwear causes great discomfort to the wearer, which can hinder productivity.

Standard Soles:

This shape has been designed to accommodate for women with standard shaped feet. This design takes into account the anatomical difference between men’s and women’s feet to allow for a better and more comfortable fit.

Features

Full Grain Leather Upper:

All Sisi footwear is manufactured utilising full grain leather. The benefits include:

  • Durability: Full grain leather provides greater durability then split leather and synthetic materials, thereby extending the life span of a product and increasing the protection of the wearer. This is especially relevant to individuals who perform in demanding work environments.
  • Breathability: Full grain leather allows air to pass through the material reducing the humidity around the foot and increasing foot health.
  • Comfit: unlike synthetic material, full grain leather molds to the shape of your foot improving the comfit to the wearer.
  • Easy to clean: Full grain leather is easily cleaned utilising a damp cloth. Due to the breathability of the leather, it also reduces the drying time after the footwear has been cleaned.
  • Eco-friendly: Full grain leather is a natural fibre and no harmful chemicals are used in creating it.

Punch Holes:

These are holes made directly in the leather upper that the lace is threaded through. These reduce the cost incurred through utilising a rust-resistant eye-let.

Rust-Resistant Eyelets:

Due to the environments in which safety footwear are worn, liquid splashes do occur. Furthermore, all footwear is cleaned utilising a damp cloth. As a result, we have taken care to ensure that all our eye-lets and D-rings are made from rust-resistant materials.

Rust-Resistant D-Rings:

D-rings serve as a quick lacing and unlacing feature. This is especially relevant in environments where a harmful substance could enter the footwear and the wearer needs to urgently remove their foot from the shoe.

Toe Caps:

All our toe caps are made from HHG steel and offer 200 joules impact protection in line with international standards.

Mesh Fabric Upper:

A mesh is similar to a net in that it is developed from many attached or woven strands. The main benefit behind utilising a mesh fabric in a safety shoe is that it allows for heightened ventilation and breathability as air easily flows through the fabric. This can be hugely beneficial to those working in hot and humid conditions as the air helps to cool the feet.

Velcrow Straps:

Vecro straps provide easy adjustment to the tightness of a shoe throughout the day. These are recommended for individuals who suffer from swollen feet or those going through pregnancy.

Elastic Side Gussets:

Elastic side gussets have been used in our slip on footwear as the stretch in the elastic allows for easy entry and exit of the foot, without compromising on the snug fit of the footwear once on.

In-Socks:

All Sisi footwear in-socks are made from anti-static non-woven material to enhance the ant-static properties of the footwear.

Top Socks:

  • All Sisi footwear comes standard with an energizer top sock that is made from a combination of polyester and wool. Polyester has wicking properties (absorbs moistures) and is hydrophobic in nature (dries quickly). It also highly resistant to abrasion allowing it to maintain its shape through the constant rubbing of the foot. Wool is a natural insulator that keeps one cool in summer and warm in winter and offers natural anti-microbial properties, killing off bacteria and reducing foot odours. All our top socks are removalable and can be easily cleaned and dried.
  • All out top socks have further been treated with ultra-fresh™ to enhance the anti-bacterial properties of the material.
  • Our top socks feature EVA foam inserts on both the ball and heel area to enhance the comfort to the wearer and increase shock absorption when walking.

Midsole:

We offer two types of midsole options to enhance the resistance against an object penetrating the sole of the footwear and injuring the foot of the wearer:

Steel Midsole:

Stainless steel midsoles provide excellent protection against sharp objects, including thin sharp objects like needles, penetrating the sole of your footwear and piercing your foot. Despite their highly protective nature, the steel midsoles only cover 80% of the foot bed.

Woven Fabric Midsole:

Woven midsoles are lighter and more flexible then their steel compatriots and cover 100% of the foot bed. Furthermore, due to their metal-free nature, they can be used by individuals who work in metal scanning environments. In saying this, the woven nature of the fabric means that there is no guarantee against thin sharp objects, such as needles and glass, penetrating the midsole.

Polyurethane (PU) Soles:

Polyurethane is a popular choice of soiling in safety footwear because it is a highly resilient material that maintains its shape over time. As a result, its durable properties make it ideal for light and heavy applications. Sisi footwear is available with either a single or dual density sole.

Single Density:

Footwear featuring single density PU soles are recommended for personnel working in light industrial environments such as warehousing, driving, retail, light manufacturing and industry executives. The grip offers high slip resistance and the steel toe cap and upper materials protects the wearer from the general hazards that are associated with these environments. These soles are lighter than dual density soled products, but not as durable.

Dual Density:

Footwear featuring dual density PU soles are recommended for personnel working in heavy industrial environments where constant abrasion is common and high sole durability is required. The extra layer of PU enhances the products resistance against exposure to acids, oils and chemicals. Personnel requiring these types of footwear include, but are not limited to; construction workers, miners, farmers and farm labourers, engineers, mechanics, bottling plants and heavy manufacturing workers.

Our Range

Standard Cut Conti Suits

Our standard cut is designed to cater for women with standard body shapes. This cut accommodates for a bust size that is typically proportional to the waist area and a derriere that is typically proportional to the hip area.

Extended Cut Conti Suits

We at Sisi understand that most women vary when it comes to body shape and size. This is why we have developed a fit suited to curvier women. Our extended cut range has been designed to accommodate for a larger bust size that is not typically proportional to the waist area and a larger posterior that is not typically proportionate to the hip area. This range further features a longer length jacket and higher waisted trousers to prevent exposure of the back and midriff areas when the wearer is raising their arms or bending over.

Maternity Cut

During pregnancy, women experience changes to the shape of their bodies. Standard conti suits often become tight and uncomfortable, as the shape of a woman's body changes. We have created a first-to-market, maternity cut especially for pregnant women in industry. This cut features a jacket with an extended front and sides, accommodating for a growing bust and belly area, as well as trousers with a cotton-knit insert at the side seams and a broad knitted cotton waist band, providing increased comfort for a growing belly.

Features

VizLite:

Our Reflective and Tri-reflect ranges are constructed utilising VizLite™ Dual Technology, the leaders in reflective tapes. VizLite™ is certified to EN 20471:2013 and ANSI 107:2015 international standards for high visibility clothing.

Benefits of using VizLite Dual Technology:

  • Added level of bright phosphorescent visibility in low or no light conditions
  • Charged by exposure to daylight or artificial light within minutes and lasts up to 8 hours
  • Environmentally-friendly and certified to Oeko-Tex Standard 100
  • Works when submerged under water

Stitching:

  • All our garments have been constructed with triple stitched seams throughout to enhance the durability and longevity of the garments.
  • All pockets have been double stitched with bar tacked stress points for added strength and improved storage capabilities.

Ruler and Pen Division:

Many of the garments within our range feature a pen division in the jacket and a ruler pocket on the trousers for enhanced convenience.

Side Slits:

This feature has been designed to enhance the flexibility and movement of the wearer. It further prevents the wearer's jacket from bunching around the hip, allowing for better comfort whilst working.

Boiler Suit Back Flap:

We understand women's need for dignity and respect in the workplace. Therefore we have created a first-to-market back flap on our boiler suit for easy removal so as to avoid undressing completely when using the lavatory whilst on-site.

YKK Zippers:

SISI Safety Wear makes use of YKK zippers, a global leader in fastening products. This quality selection improves the durability of the garments, enhancing their longevity. YKK zippers conform to SANS 1822 standards.

Trousers & Boiler Suits

  • Swing pockets
  • Laid on pockets
  • Hip pocket
  • Ruler pocket

Jackets
