At the very heart of a good work boot is a good outsole and there has never been a Buckbootz style which hasn’t featured rubber outsoles. For us there is no compromising, we can’t see past rubber as the prime work boot sole material and we invest heavily in our own rubber outsole development programmes.

Rubber is tough, durable, stays flexible in a wide temperature range and is abrasion, slip, heat (300ºC for 60 secs ) and oil resistant. It also provides superior grip in nearly every conceivable working situation and is resistant to a number of chemicals.

All the rubber outsoles you can see here have been developed by us. If you think you’ve seen other soles which look a bit like them then it’s probably because some of our competitors have seen and liked them too.
