Our range of superior-quality PVC gumboots is manufactured from locally produced PVC compounds. With years of expertise in advanced technology, we’re committed to delivering innovations with our safety footwear products.
1992 was the year that we decided to expand our offering – rather than just manufacturing general-purpose PVC gumboots, we ventured into our new chapter of producing high-quality, innovative safety gumboots.
The first of this range was the Original Black Toffee Commodore Gumboot by Neptun Boot. Known as the “trekker” boot, this safety gumboot with a steel toe cap paved the way for the now-iconic Shosholoza Gumboot brand.
Influenced by the mining industry requirements and feedback from the market, the Shosholoza gumboot made its debut in 2005 to popular reception. The two products carry very similar characteristics, but it was the Shosholoza gumboot that allowed us to produce the superior and advanced safety features in mining footwear that we are well-known for today.
The Shosholoza Gumboot from Neptun Boot is a benchmark for mining gumboots in Southern Africa and is well-recognised around the world for its patented metatarsal protection. Available with international certifications under the brand Stimela, the Shosholoza gumboot was the 2007 winner of the prestigious DISA AWARD (Design Institute South Africa) in the Mining and Industrial Category.
Tested under severe South African mining conditions to deliver a world-class mining safety gumboot, the Shosholoza gumboot boasts several advanced comfort and safety features such as its unique metatarsal protector, steel toe cap, and steel midsole. Due to international demand, we launched the Shosholoza gumboot with a grey sole.
We’ve decided that it’s time for the toffee sole to be reintroduced to our range. Without discontinuing our grey soled safety gumboots, the previously named Commodore, now known as the Black Toffee Shosholoza Gumboot by Neptun Boot will be relaunched this year in specific industries within the mining sector.
We’re proud to welcome back an original favourite to our safety footwear product offering the Black Toffee Shosholoza Gumboot.
Whatever your safety footwear requirements, Neptun Boot’s range of safety gumboots will help you get the job done.
