FAQ's

So How Does The Magnetic Sole Work?

With the soles of the shoes being magnetic they offer you extra grip on flat metal surfaces.

The strong magnets in the sole magnetizes your foot to metal surfaces assisting in sliding on steep metal gradients but will allow you to freely lift your foot to walk.

A concept a bit like a fridge magnetic, you cannot slide the magnet down your fringe but you can easily pull the magnet off the metal surface.

So How Long Do The Magnetic Soles Work?

There will be no loss in magnetized force from within the sole of the shoe however the soles of the shoes will wear out with use affecting the use of the shoes.

Once the wear reaches a certain point the shoe will need replacement.

So What's The Difference Between the Magnetic & Non-Magnetic Shoes?

The roofing shoes are NOT magnetic, they are a standard type of roofing shoe.

The roofing shoes have been designed with 100% rubber soles maximizing flexibility and comfort on your working profile.

Breathable and soft they will warm as you work assisting in grip to help with stability.
