Milwaukee is set to release new safety footwear later this year, and we at ITS are extremely excited about it, to say the least. In this article, we will be going over the new footwear and exploring all the information currently available.

We’re expecting to see FlexTred hit shelves around May 2024, and ArmourTred following around September. These dates are subject to change but we will update this article with any further info.

What do we know so far about Milwaukee’s New Footwear?

On Milwaukee’s website, we can see that Milwaukee plans on releasing both a lightweight breathable, and leather waterproof safety trainer/boot range.

As far as we can tell Milwaukee will be releasing 9x new boots/trainers. Those Boots & Trainers are then broken up into 2 ranges.

FlexTredwhich is split into 2 different safety ratings.

ArmourTredalso features 2 different safety ratings.

All that said, Milwaukee has made sure to create a range of boots that caters to every user. Whether you need high-quality protection boots, lightweight all-day wearers, or something in between Milwaukee has you covered. Here’s the breakdown:

A First Look at The New Milwaukee Boots Coming 2024 | ITS Hub (3)

What is Flextred™ And What Is Included?

Milwaukee’s new lightweight & metal-free Safety Trainer/Boot range. FlexTred boots are all about keeping you comfy and safe, especially for folks out there working in the heat like roofers.

One of the main selling points of FlexTred is it flexibility of the shoes. The sole is incredibly flexible, allowing you to work whilst kneeling/crouching without pinching like some traditional leather boots.

These lightweight boots still offer enough protection while keeping you flexible and nimble without having to compromise on durability, so much so that Milwaukee will be offering these with a “lifetime” guarantee”

FlexTred features 5 pairs of work shoes to choose from, split into 2 different sillhouttes. Each style has its perks but they all feature the following patented designs;

  • ENERGY FOAM Heel(using new technology within the sole, the safety mid sole is sandwiched between energy absorbing foam so you no longer have to deal with those metal edges)
  • STEP-RELEASE™ Heel(on the back of the shoe a small plate that allows you to step on and remove your shoes with ease, stopping you from breaking the backs of the shoes)
  • ROLLCAGE™ Heel(the red part of the heel, which is made of a tougher material improving stability around the ankle and providing extra support)

The Flextrend™ are a sleek red and black colourway with an appearance that is unlike any other work boots on the market. If you’re looking to turn heads these are going to be all the hype onsite for a while.

FlexTred™ S1PS Trainers / Work Boots

The FXT S1PS work shoes are lightweight trainers with a textile upper that provides ventilation for your feet. If that’s not enough they have a handy lace pocket for storing your laces away eliminating slip/trip hazards. They also carry ESD (electrostatic discharge certification) and are safety-rated EN ISO 20345:2022 S1PS ESD FO SR.

FlexTred™ S3S Trainers / Work Boots

The FXT S3S work shoes and trainers are also lightweight and metal-free but instead of a breathable textile upper, they feature a Nubuck water repellent leather upper, the advantage is that nuback leather is water, dust, and dirt resistant. In terms of site safety, the S3S are a direct upgrade to the SP1S boasting an EN ISO 20345:2022 S3S ESD SC FO SR rating. They are also the only shoe in the range to come in the old-school, iconic tan work boot colourway.

What is ArmourtRed™ And What is Included?

Milwaukee’s new ArmourTred Safety Trainer/Boot range offers four pairs of heavy-duty work boots. As implied by the name, ArmourTred prioritises protection, evident in their use of durable materials.

Milwaukee has considered convenience from multiple angles in their boot design, evident in the inclusion of a “pull loop” at the back of all ArmourTred shoes. This loop is generously sized, allowing for easy gripping even when wearing gloves, facilitating effortless shoe donning.

One notable difference is the sole of the boot, which features a heavy tread increasing the grip and providing better protection to the bottom of the foot. That paired with the tougher full grain leather results in a sturdy hard wearing range of footwear.

The Boots also feature many of the same key features as FlexTred, but when it comes to safety features they outperform with upgrades such as;

  • SHOCKSHIELD front hammer(steel plating for added protection and rubber reinforced outsole with strong studs for the best grip in demanding terrain)
  • Heat Resistance – (up to 300°C)
  • Ladder Grip Soles – (Making it easier to grip onto and climb ladders safely)

The ArmourTred shoes feature a similar colourway to the Flextreds, a cool black and red design. The range features more high tops than FlexTred, providing ankle protection and also uses materials such as leather to provide higher levels of protection. For one, both S7S boots feature Sympatex® waterproof membrane, helping the boots stay dry.

ArmourTred™ S3S Trainers / Work Boots

The AMT S3S trainers/boots are heavy-duty boots made with full-grain cow leather, making them incredibly water-resistant, dust resistant and easy to clean. These trainers/boots also feature superior grip bottoms which helps prevent slipping

Not only that but they also feature an increased scuff cap size, this increased size covers more of your toes helping with protection and durability. This bumps up their safety rating to EN ISO 20345:2022 S3S ESD HRO SC FO LG SR.

ArmourTred™ S7S Trainers / Work Boots

The AMT S7S trainers/boots are heavy-duty boots designed for protection and hold the highest safety rating: EN ISO 20345:2022 S7S CI HRO SC FO LG SR. Similar to the ArmourTred S3S, they are water-resistant. However, there are notable differences between the two shoes.

The BM110111W also has a unique fastening system called BOA® Fit which allows you to “tie your shoes” without laces, turn the dial to fastenen and unfasten the boots, simple stuff.
