Work in the agricultural sector continues through the winter. Manure, mud, rain and ice create wet, dirty and cold working conditions. This calls for a good pair of waterproof work wellies with high slip resistance and which are warm and comfortable even in cold temperatures, and also guarantee safety. Rubber wellies may seem like a logical choice, until you try the work wellies for men and women from Bekina Boots in NEOTANE polyurethane! The positive ratings and 5-star reviews from our customers are the best proof that our NEOTANE farming wellies surpass the classic rubber wellie in many respects.
Bekina Boots wellies are not rubber wellies, but quality safety wellies made of NEOTANE. This high-quality polyurethane was developed in our own lab and, together with our technical knowledge and experience, makes our work wellies for farming stronger, more comfortable, more flexible and better-insulating than rubber or PVC wellies.
"Our safety wellies for farming are SRC (Slip Resistance Classification) certified and tested in our lab. Of course, lab conditions cannot always be compared with real working conditions". Based on the feedback we receive from farmers, we improve our work wellies year after year to make them more slip-resistant, warmer and more ergonomic. After all, work wellies for farming should not only be safe, but also comfortable. You walk around in them all day and don’t want sore feet to ruin your motivation to work. Fortunately, Bekina Boots farming wellies are very light, which means you are less likely to feel tired. Thanks to the kick-off spur at the back of the wellie, you can also remove your work wellies quickly and easily without much fuss – extra handy!
Bekina Boots, have developed different types of work wellies for men and women working in farming. No rubber wellies for us but, rather, quality safety wellies in NEOTANE with and without a steel toe cap. From the Steplite EasyGrip available without safety toe cap and midsole (O4), with steel toe cap (S4) and with steel toe cap and midsole (S5) to the Thermolite IceShield (S5), they all have a high thermal insulation value.
The StepliteX ThermoProtec insulates down to -40 °C. The extra-thick sole not only offers extra protection against the cold, but also has a shock-absorbing effect. The StepliteX ThermoProtec is often chosen for use in the milking parlour, where the farmer stands still for a long time on a cold concrete floor. This work wellie for farming comes with a non-metallic protective toe cap and midsole (S5).
But the real powerhouse in this range is the Thermolite IceShield, which makes agricultural work in extreme cold just that little bit more comfortable thanks to its thermal insulation value all the way down to -50 °C. This wellie is also equipped with a steel toe cap and midsole (S5).
One of the striking features of Bekina Boots thermal farming wellies is their increased comfort. And not just because they guarantee warmth and are 100% waterproof. The wellies, made of NEOTANE polyurethane, remain flexible even at extremely cold temperatures and retain their suppleness. In addition, our thermal wellies are up to half a kilogram lighter than thermo winter wellies made from other materials such as rubber and PVC. If you walk around in them for a whole day, it can really make a difference because you experience less pain and fatigue in your legs. In addition, the safety material of our wellies is encapsulated in the polyurethane, which increases comfort and prevents any feeling of cold.
