Wayne Safety started manufacturing gumboots an incredible 80 years ago, with Wayne Rubber producing rubber gumboots in KZN. This began a long tradition of manufacturing superior quality gumboots and serving workers right at the heart of industry.

Our Egoli boots have been trusted by those working in various industries for decades. The new and improved Egoli 2 features PVC uppers for optimum flexibility and abrasion resistance, nitrile PVC soles for durability and protection, and a cleated sole design for SRA level slip resistance.

We were first to introduce a fully-integrated metatarsal PVC gumboot with EN20345 accreditation, offering superior protection for those working in heavy duty conditions.

Over the years, we have worked on reducing our carbon footprint in line with our objective of sustainability, and today we produce 35% of all our gumboots from recycled materials.
