All materials used in the manufacture of TAIPAN Boots are of the highest quality.


DDR® Dual Density rubber 

Direct Injection Sole Rubber Moulding.

This rubber is unique to the emergency services.

The nitrile foam low density mid soles are lightweight and have outstanding shock absorbing qualities with cushion comfort that allows the sole to flex for maximum ground contact. 

The high density, hard wearing nitrile rubber outsoles are designed to provide maximum slip resistant qualities with increased surface contact for maximum traction for positive grip and extended boot life.

The Taipan tread pattern does not retain stones and dirt.

DDR® helps to prevent plantar fasciitis,

DDR® reduces feet and leg fatigue,

DDR® reduces strain on the lower part of your back and knees.

DDR® can stand high temperatures up to 300◦C without losing it's technical properties.

Rubber has longer shelf life, resistance to hydrolysis.

Unlike PU soles that have a shelf life, DDR will never break down.  DDR soles are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, a natural product.

The Taipan Comfort System combining the extreme comfort of the nitrile rubber mid sole together with the superb comfort and shock absorbing quality of a Poron innersole guaranteed to retain 85% of its shock absorbency for the life of the boot.




Leather Upper And Padded Collar

Fire retardant and waterproof (the very best full grain cow hide).

It has durability and water resistant properties that enhance,

and compliment the high standard of the workmanship of the Taipan.




Tricot Moisture – Wicking Lining (waterproof).

Allowing the lining to constantly adapt to the movement of the foot.

Providing the highest level of abrasion resistance.

Tricot absorbs and desorbs moisture from your foot.




Steel Cap

Taipan offers a light weight and nature formed steel cap.

Has impact and compression rating to ASNZS 2210.3: 2006.

Drop tested to 200 newtons.


Midsole Plate (the midsole plate is only available in structural footwear)

Stainless steel midsole plate that gives you protection from sharp objects (such as nails),

that you may step-on during your duties.


Thread & Lace Heavy Duty

Heavy duty Nomex stitching and flame proof laces.


Zipper Front And Side

Heavy duty 10 gauge quick release.

Lace in front zipper kit style 5072, 5074

Side zipper fully integrated style 5095, 5096,5090,5097,5092



Comfort and cushion impact.

Provides highly resilient support and cushioning.

Given you support to back and legs.

In accordance with the AS/NZS 2210.3 and AS/NZS 4821:2006 

Classification “A" Standard 


Anti-static footwear should be used  if it is necessary to minimize electrostatic build up by dissipating electrostatic charges, thus avoiding the risk of spark ignition, for  example flammable substances and vapours, and if the risk of electric shock from any electrical apparatus or live parts has not been completely eliminated. It should be noted, however, that anti-static footwear cannot guarantee an adequate protection against electric shock as it introduces only a resistance between foot and floor. If the risk of electric shock has not been completely eliminated, additional tests mentioned below should be a routine part of the accident prevention program of the workplace.


Experience has shown that for anti-static purposes, the discharge path through a product should normally have an electrical resistance of less than 1000MQ at any time through its useful life. A value of 100MQ is specified as the lowest limit of resistance of a product when new, in order to ensure some limited protection against dangerous electric shock or ignition in the event of any electrical apparatus becoming defective when operating at a voltage up to 250 V. However under certain conditions, users should be aware that the footwear might give inadequate protection and resistance of this type of footwear can be changed significantly by flexing, contamination or moisture. This footwear will not perform its intended function if worn in wet conditions. It is therefore necessary to ensure that the product is capable of fulfilling its designed function of dissipating electro-static charges and also giving some protection during the whole if its life. The user is recommended to establish an in-house test for electrical resistance and us it at regular and frequent intervals. If the footwear is worn in conditions where the soling material becomes contaminated, wearers should always check the electrical properties of the footwear before entering a hazard area.


When anti-static footwear is in use, the resistance of the flooring should be such that it does not invalidate the protection provided by the footwear. 

In the use, no insulating elements should be introduced between the innersole of the footwear and the foot of the wearer. If any insert is put between the innersole and the foot, the combination footwear/insert should be checked for its electrical properties.
