The Giant becomes widest safety shoe on the Canadian market
By Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk
Chaussures Régence, a Canadian company founded in 1979, has just launched the Giant, the widest safety shoe on the Canadian market. This shoe, from the company’s Acton brand, is specifically designed for workers who require safety shoes.
The Giant is the only CSA Z195-certified very-wide fit safety shoe, at WWW (5E), available in Canada. Until now, the only widths available for Canadian workers for a CSA-certified safety shoe were W (3E) and (4E).
The Giant features a steel protective cap, lightweight anti-puncture composite sole resistant to electric shocks, anti-skid rubber sole on dry and wet surfaces, resistant to oils and acids, and a waterproof full grain leather upper with sealed seams and leather lining with antimicrobial treatment.
