If innovation is important for any sector, it is essential for safety or occupational footwear.

At Fal Seguridad we work so that technology can make work easier, more efficient and safer. When carrying out any task, be it more or less dangerous, it is important to have approved protection barriers.

Why is it important to innovate in footwear?

To achieve different results, it is important to change the way you do things. That is why, as a fundamental part of our innovation process, we put special attention on all the opinions of our consumers. Your evaluation of our products is our greatest asset. We try to use the opinion of professionals to make our footwear even more adapted to the daily tasks of workers.

What innovations have been introduced in Fal Seguridad?

Some of the main innovations that have been introduced by Fal Seguridad are the following.

Gore-Tex Footwear

Designed to keep feet dry and protected through its long-lasting waterproofing, high breathability and optimal climatic comfort. Gore-tex footwear has been developed to keep feet dry. The key is a waterproof membrane that prevents liquids from penetrating from the outside while allowing the skin to breathe, achieving greater comfort on the feet and adapting to different temperatures.

  • Long-lasting quality tested.
  • Versatile footwear that reduces the cost of purchase for companies.
  • Reduces illnesses, injuries and accidents in the work environment.
  • Adaptable to a multitude of climatic conditions.
  • The perspiration goes to the outside keeping the feet drier inside.
  • Quick-drying fabric keeps feet warm and more comfortable.

Firefighter boots with PBI fabric

It is one of the greatest innovations in the field of firefighting. They are completely textile boots, made of waterproof, breathable and fire-resistant microfiber PBI fabric. The fabric in which they are made, PBI, is very light but at the same time it has a high resistance to traction. It is designed for rescue and firefighting.

  • Light.
  • Flexible.
  • Breathable.
  • Protección against heat and flames.
  • Ergonomic design.
  • Long lasting and resistant to flames.

Anti-puncture insoles

When choosing an insole for safety footwear, not only the resistance component is essential, but also that of lightness and flexibility, seeking maximum comfort under European protection regulations.

  • Non-metallic anti-puncture insole.
  • Fabric stronger than steel.
  • Resistant to flames and high temperatures, protecting against thermal risks of up to 400 degrees.

Fal Seguridad Soles

At Fal Seguridad, the sole has a special place when protecting workers. Each job has a need and a sole must adapt to that job.

One of our latest additions is the Helse model, a sole that acts as a protective barrier against viruses and bacteria thanks to its biocidal power.

  • Also effective against the human coronavirus HCoV-NL63 belonging to the same family as SARS-CoV-2 (Covid 19)
  • Eliminates viruses and bacteria in 4 hours.
  • Effective during the useful life of the footwear.

BOA® Fit System

When time is not an option, the quick, precise and effortless BOA Fit System is the ideal system.

  • The BOA® Fit System provides more explosive action and unmatched precision.
  • Improves circulation and efficiency.
  • High quality and durability in any environment.


It is a resistant and light toe cap at the same time. In addition to complying with current regulations, it can withstand a shock of 200 joules, as well as a compression of 15 kN.

  • Light.
  • Resistant.
  • Comfortable.

HELSE Anti-Virus and Anti-Bacterial Soles

HELSE is a compound incorporated in the rubber formulation of the sole of footwear, which is capable of eliminating bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus. It is a sole that acts as a protective barrier against viruses and bacteria thanks to its biocidal power. A sole that provides health, safety, confidence and peace of mind. Effective biocide protection. Viruses and bacteria have the capacity to survive outside living beings and can maintain their infectious power for hours or days depending on the surface where they have been deposited. One of the surfaces where they can most easily be deposited is the ground we walk on. HELSE has been successfully tested for virucidal activity (ISO 21702) and microbial activity (ISO 22196:2011).


The first footwear on the market with the functions of a waterproof but breathable boot. HYDROTECH is the first boot on the market that is able to achieve the features of a waterproof boot but with high breathability. These boots are very resistant, designed for demanding work environments. The footwear is ideal for sectors such as supplies, fish and meat processing, gardening, construction, gas and oil, forestry, agriculture, mining, etc. With Extraguard by Gore-Tex® fabric it maintains its waterproof and breathable properties in a durable way even with chemical contamination such as 37% sulphuric acid, 30% Socio Hydroxide and Diesel. The HYDROTECH boots from Fal Seguridad guarantee lightness in the wet and do not lose their waterproof and breathable properties even after several months of intensive use in extreme weather conditions in constant contact with water and humidity.


Our latest technological innovation in Safety Footwear. At Fal Seguridad we have developed a new technology that improves the ergonomics and comfort of safety footwear. AIRFAL combines a striking sporty design with state-of-the-art materials. It also features Rebound System, our innovative technology for safety footwear. Rebound System helps to ensure that the entire step is made directly on a foamed polyurethane material with great ergonomic properties. We have achieved this by reversing the positioning of the textile anti-puncture insole, so that the tread does not rest directly on its approximately 5 mm of high tenacity fibres. Modern, comfortable and ergonomic safety footwear with no loss of strength is now possible.
