Revolutionary lightweight boots from Dr.Martens

November 14, 2016

Industrial safety footwear experts Dr. Martens has launched their new, revolutionary footwear collection, DM’s Lite. Designed to provide ultimate comfort without compromising on function or safety, Dr. Martens has unleashed a game changer in the form of three new styles, the Calamus, Linnet and Corvid. Lightweight without compromise.

Weighing in at only 3.2lbs a pair, Dr. Martens’ Calamus are guaranteed to keep you light on your feet. Each pair of DM’s Lite comes with a Softwair memory foam footbed, positioned and shaped for arch support, and also includes breathable linings, padded collar and tongue for all-day ease and comfort.

When it comes to safety footwear, it’s crucial to have the right type of foot protection to suit you and your workplace. Research suggests that 2.1 million working days were lost in 2014/15, with over half caused by slips, trips and falls from height. DM’s Lite offer lightweight, comfort-driven styles, ideal for those working on their feet all-day. From the everyday DIY-er, to the full-time Transport Operations Manager, DM’s Lite makes for an ideal choice.

Aside from the lightness, each style boasts a range of safety benefits, including a composite toe cap, a flexible puncture-resistant midsole and a Nitrile rubber outsole that provides exceptional heat and slip resistance.
