Probuy is now carrying a new line of clothing and safety footwear developed to provide women who work in traditionally male professions the comfort, protection and ergonomic support their feet need.
Research has demonstrated that female legs and feet are not simply scaled-down versions of male legs and feet, but rather, differ in a number of shape characteristics, particularly at the lateral side of the foot, the arch, the ball of the foot and the first toe . These differences have been taken into account by Pilote&Filles in the design and manufacture of their footwear.The Pilote&Filles line is designed exclusively for women and encourages them to show their true colours.
Having spent years working in a male dominated field wearing men’s boots, my arches collapsed and I still have scars from the areas that were repeatedly blistered. Wearing smaller sizes of men’s footwear causes many health issues for women because that boot or shoe simply does not fit our differently shaped feet. What I love about this line, besides the comfort and safety, is the way they incorporate subtle little touches of femininity in their footwear. For example, one style has flowers on the sole and tiny star cutouts on the side. Those of us who do not wish to be as bold with our colour choices have great options such as the boots below.
