BIRKENSTOCK’s QS500 safety shoe with a removable footbed offers firm grip and takes the strain off your feet, allowing you to stand and move around comfortably at work for many hours, even in demanding environments. The QS500 is presented as a simple, modern sneaker with 6-hole lacing.
This ESD version was developed specifically for people working in microelectronics or with high-frequency technology. ESD stands for “electrostatic discharge.” These shoe models continuously discharge their wearers gently. The antistatic elements in the sole balance out potential differences between the electrical charge of the wearer and their work environment by permanently “grounding” the feet and can be identified by a round, yellow emblem. Warning: The ESD range goes up to values of 35 Mohm and is therefore non-insulating!
The nonslip, metal-free, and oil- and petrol-resistant outsole additionally provides for energy absorption around the heel and is penetration-resistant. A 200-joule steel toe with a scratch-resistant toe cap protects the forefoot. The upper is made from water-resistant smooth leather (WRU) and offers antistatic protection.
The shoe is certified in accordance with EN ISO 20345:2011 and meets the requirements of protection category S3.
