Regardless whether you are a professional builder or a fan of DIY alterations and repairs in your home, safety should always be your utmost concern. ELTEN is a family-owned company that has been a manufacturer of high-quality safety shoes since 1910. Back then, Johann van Elten, the founder, invented safety shoes made from leather.  However, like others in his line of business, he did not pay much attention to comfort or style. Today, the basic principles of safety shoes have undergone considerable changes and ELTEN’s impressive product range is remarkable proof of this fact. ELTEN shoes are not only stylish (some of them look like snazzy trainers), they are also manufactured from the most up-to-date materials.
