This competition is now closed, thank you for entering.
HVP and Dickies Workwear have teamed up to give away two pairs of Dickies’ new Phoenix safety trainers.
Just head to Twitter and retweet the competition tweet to be in with a chance of winning. The competition will close for entries at 12 noon on Friday 3 November. Terms and conditions can be found at the bottom of this article.
The new footwear line offers greater flexibility than ever before, using Dickies’ latest innovative outsole designs.
The latest addition to the company’s extensive footwear range, Phoenix is available as a trainer or boot and features Dickies’ new DTc outsole. Designed by its footwear experts to achieve the highest grip performance on smoother surfaces, the DTc sole has ergonomic flex lines and geometric tread patterns for maximum ground contact – even in wet conditions.
Great for tradespeople working in an indoor environment, the new footwear is particularly suitable for anyone who is often required to kneel or bend, while offering a high level of comfort for those who are on their feet all day.
The midsole is made from EVA, which is especially lightweight and flexible. This material provides cushioning and rebound, which helps absorb shock from the ground, while the outer sole is moulded with the high-performance rubber for abrasion resistance and durability.
To maximise the lightweight feel of the shoes, Phoenix has a composite toecap (lighter than steel alternatives), as well as being anti-static and featuring a breathable textile lining.
Dickies is launching the Phoenix line alongside its new Liberty trainers and boots, featuring the same new outsole technology and reliable midsole.
James Whitaker, Marketing Director at Dickies, said: “The Phoenix and Liberty are the latest in a number of new footwear styles to feature new outsoles we’ve been working on, using the best compounds for the highest performance. We are investing heavily on research and development in footwear and taking full control of the design and testing process. We are testing our products above and beyond the safety regulation to ensure the protection and comfort of our customers.
“Every shipment is tested in our warehouse as a part of Dickies’ due diligence programme, and our latest SATRA slip resistance tester allows us to investigate the performance of different sole materials on various surfaces and conditions. This means we can design, develop and test products for specific working conditions, allowing end users to choose footwear that’s entirely fit for purpose.”
