Innovative soles and attention to detail to guarantee the highest safety standards

Just a few months after presenting its new collection (available online in the “PRODUCTS” section of the website, on occasion of the “A+A” trade fair in Düsseldorf in October 2015, the Apulian footwear factory introduces four new products to its catalogue. The new models “Ritmo” and “Regata” add an extra dimension to the “TOP CLASSIC” range and “Manta” and “Mantide” complete the “BASIC” range.

The new footwear bears testament to the typical characteristics of Panda Safety products, guaranteed by their unmistakeable Italian Style: refined design, maximum protection and excellent comfort.

The new models not only represent a step forwards in terms of design, but also in terms of their adaptability to the workers’ needs, also thanks to the innovative PU/TPU sole for Ritmo and Regata and the polyurethane one for Manta and Mantide.

The new non-slip PU/TPU sole of Ritmo and Regata

The reinforced heel and toe-cap areas give the shoe better abrasion resistance, whereas the particular design of the tread surface, made of thermoplastic polyurethane and full of grooves, keeps the risk of slipping down to a minimum.

This new sole is strong and resistant in time and accommodates and supports the foot thanks to the soft polyurethane foam insolewhich guarantees a feeling of total comfort for the wearer.


Ritmo the high work shoe which combines excellent performance and safety

Ritmo is a high lace-up shoe in which form and function blend in perfect synergy. Indeed, what at first glance might seem to be two simple decorative elements, are, in reality essential components designed with a precise purpose. For example, the Panda Safety logo on the side of the shoe at the height of the shoe collar is a protective cushion for the malleolus, which comes into play in the event of lateral impact, while the fire red safety eyelets, at the top of the lacing, have been specially designed to make it easy to remove the shoe if necessary.

Regata, the low and comfortable safety shoe with reflective inserts

For environments where low footwear is preferable, there is Regata; a particularly versatile footwear which is characterised by the reflective inserts in the heel area, which are extremely useful in poor visibility situations. Regata’s stand out feature is its comfort, thanks to the softly padded collar and tongue.

The new Manta and Mantide sole, light, flexible and even more resistant

Manta and Mantide have a new sole, providing even more safety to the wearer’s feet, also thanks to the new shock-absorbing insert in the heel area, whose energy absorption coefficient exceeds the safety standards required by EN ISO 20345:2011 certification by 165%.

The sole is made of single density polyurethane and is extremely light and flexible. Furthermore, thanks to the specially designedtread surface to guarantee better adherence to the ground, this footwear can be used in various working environments and particularly where the operator carries out their work on surfaces with a high slipping risk.

Mantide, the high bootie with a super resistant toe cap

The distinctive feature of this new model of the BASIC line is its lightweight strength. The composite material safety toecap is extremely resistant, but at the same time very light.
The real leather upper has a padded collar and tongue for all round comfort which means that they can be used even for long working shifts.

Manta, reflective inserts and puncture resistant layer

The wearer of Manta, the real leather padded work shoe with orange contrast stitches, will never go unnoticed also thanks to the reflective inserts in the heel area. Manta, which is particularly suited to varied working conditions, has a puncture resistant insolemade of a multilayer polyester fabric which is about 40% lighter than the common steel plates and can, therefore, protect the wearer’s foot without sacrificing comfort.


All the new models have a special insole which has been specifically designed to withstand abrasions and to guarantee transpirationso that the foot always remains dry and protected even from unperceivable risks, thanks to the antibacterial and antimicrobial treatment; furthermore these 4 new shoe models, like all the PANDA SAFETY collection, are certified in compliance with the requirements of the European standard UNI EN ISO 20345:2011.
