ELTEN safety shoes always give you the good feeling of being really safe!
Founded in 1910 in Uedem on the Lower Rhine by Johann van Elten, his vision brought the breakthrough for the modern safety shoe as we know it today: the revolutionary invention of the first ELTEN work shoe made of leather instead of wood as was customary at the time. Today they are among the leading manufacturers of high-quality safety and work shoes in Europe and employ over 190 people with an annual production of approx. 1.6 million pairs. ELTEN safety shoes are not only designed and manufactured in uncompromising workmanship at an excellent quality level, but they also meet specifications, some of which go far beyond the current standard requirements.
