Made in Germany with passion since 1910! ELTEN footwear is not only made to the highest levels of quality, it is also designed to specifications, some of which go far beyond what is required by current standards and regulations. Have we mentioned the design yet? Never have you experienced a more stylish and genuinely comfortable feeling of safety. Our footwear is now available exclusively through StitchKRAFT in Australia and New Zealand.
More than 100 years ago, the founder Johann van Elten invented the first ELTEN safety shoe - made of leather instead of wood. Today, ELTEN is Europe’s leading manufacturer of quality safety and work footwear.
With more than 260 employees, ELTEN produces more than 2 million pairs of footwear each year.
Amongst other things, ELTEN safety footwear stand out in the following ways:
PREMIUM QUALITY - MADE IN GERMANY
ELTEN is a family-owned manufacturing business located in the Rhine area in Germany. Their products are well-crafted, designed and manufactured using the most advanced techniques and technologies. ELTEN footwear lasts longer and performs better compared to many others on the market and all products are backed by a 12 month manufacturer warranty!
HIGH END SAFETY
All footwear complies with the local AS/NZS 2210.3 and international ISO safety standards. In fact, they often exceed the specifications from the standards and various models are available covering all safety classes (S1, S1P, S2 and S3).
ELTEN safety footwear comes in various designs appealing to different groups of users, from the more conservative ‘Classic’ designs to the ‘Iconic’ and ‘Bold’ designs for those who want to stand out from the crowd. One thing is for sure – there is a look and style for everyone!
COMFORT & HEALTH
Being on your feet all day can lead to various health problems. ELTEN develops its footwear and soling systems in cooperation with leading scientific institutions and orthopaedic experts worldwide. The result is footwear with excellent anatomical attributes - they fit well, feel well and support the feet, knees and back effectively.
Ladies feet are different. They are narrower, with a lower instep compared to men’s feet. ELTEN has a whole range of ladies footwear catering for a narrower fit.
SEMI-ORTHOPAEDIC INSERTS FOR ALL FOOTWEAR
Certified, semi-orthopaedic full-length inlay soles are available for all footwear with 3 different arch support levels - low, medium and high. Visit us at our showroom for an assessment with the ELTEN ‘Footdisc’, a thermosensitive measuring device to determine required arch support level.
SAFETY FEATURES FOR SPECIAL DANGERS
The ELTEN range includes welding boots, smelter boots, roofing boots, chainsaw-protected boots, shoes with metatarsal guards, flame resistant seams and laces, shoes with cut-resistant interlining, ankle braces, and much more.
