ISM, the manufacturer of safety shoes, as well as work and outdoor fashion, launched a product that revolutionised the industry back in 2017, namely its dual.IMPULSE® sole technology. This successful concept has now been extended to include the AER55 featuring a special upper made of 3D-SafetyKnit®

‘Excellent stability and long-lasting comfort – for fatigue-free work and permanent optimum performance’

At the core of this intelligent dual.IMPULSE® sole technology is a dual foamed midsole made of IMPULSE.FOAM® that reacts to every step with an energy impulse. Therefore, IMPULSE.FOAM® not only actively returns up to 55% of the energy used to the body, but also provides maximum cushioning, excellent stability and long-lasting comfort – for fatigue-free work and permanent optimum performance. 

The AER55’s new 3D-SafetyKnit® upper consists of a highly breathable and resistant textile fabric in contrasting colours. Thanks to its seamless nature, the AER55 adapts to your foot like a sock, ensuring a perfect fit. The black/blue and blue/orange colour combinations are remarkably sporty, highlighting the modern appearance of these safety shoes. Tabs in contrasting colours on the tongue and heel make the shoes easier to put on and create an additional design element. As does the AER55 logo, which stands for the “Active Energy Return” of up to 55% and completes the dynamic look of these sporty safety shoes. The AER55 IMPULSE BLACK BLUE LOW was awarded the iF design award 2020. 

‘The safety footwear is ESD certified, meaning that it can be worn when electrostatic charge needs to be discharged’

As well as the appearance of these work shoes, technical aspects also play an important role. The AER55 meets Class S1P safety requirements in accordance with DIN EN ISO 20345. A lightweight fibreglass toe cap tested to 200 joules protects against falling objects. The equally extremely lightweight, flexible FAP® anti-penetration protection made of several layers of extremely tear-resistant textile fabric protects the wearer from sharp objects penetrating the sole. This is also heat-resistant up to 300°C (HRO) and slip-resistant in accordance with category SRA. The safety footwear is ESD certified, meaning that it can be worn when electrostatic charge needs to be discharged. TPU reinforcements on the toe cap and heel area protect the upper from excessive wear, especially when kneeling. 

The two models, AER55 IMPULSE BLACK BLUE LOW and AER55 IMPULSE BLUE ORANGE LOW, are particularly suitable for dry areas in the manual, industry, logistics and manufacturing sectors. During a long working day of eight hours or more, it is essential to wear safety shoes that protect your feet, joints and back. A perfect fit, the right size and no pressure points are the basis for pain-free comfort. ALBATROS®’s ergonomic comfitAIR® footbed with longitudinal arch support optimises the foot’s natural position in the shoe and stimulates the muscles while walking. Numerous pores make it breathable and along with the lightweight lining ensure an optimum climate inside the shoe. So nothing stands in the way of a long working day – for those who give their all every day. 

The AER55 models will be available from March 2020 from specialist retailers and selected online stores.
