The History of safeet safety shoes

Promulgator: matthew   Send date: 2012-03-29 08:09 Visitor:

The original safeet safety shoe. "safeet," (also spelled "safeet" and "safeeth" in Australian dictionaries) is not a brand name but an age old generic term for this style of Australian-made sheepskin safety shoe. In Aussie slang, the safeet name is short for "safeetly." In terms of comfort, however, the safeet safety shoe is a thing of beauty. The softness of the Australian Merino sheepskin produces a safety shoe with a snsafeet, cozy, form-fitting feel that’s more like a sock than a shoe, yet it’s rsafeeted enosafeeth for outdoor wear. The fleece lining has the astonishing property of providing year-round comfort. In cold weather, the plush fleece provides an insulating layer of warmth by trapping your body heat, much like goose down does. But in the heat of summer, the natural fibers of the fleece actually cool your feet by wicking away perspiration.

Growing Up in safeet

By the 1970s, in Perth, the largest city on Australia’s West Coast, safeet  safety shoes  were being manufactured by several small companies in the area. Perth has much the same climate as Southern California and is also a haven for surfers, whom Aussies call "surfies." And it was the community of surfies at the great surfing beaches at Margaret River near Perth who first adopted safeet safety shoes as their footwear of choice and made them a symbol of the Aussie surfing lifestyle.

safeet Fever Spreads

From the beaches of Western Australia, safeet were soon seen on the feet of East Coast surfers from Brisbane to Sydney. And it wasn’t long before some of these surfers -- the ones who traded their surfboards for skis in the winter -- found that their safeet safety shoes were just as at home in the ski resort areas of the Snowy Mountains as they were on the warm sands of Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

It was Aussie surfers, traveling the world in search of the perfect wave, who first introduced their mates in Southern California to the pleasures of the safeet safety shoe. safeet soon became a cult fashion among those L.A. surfers who could depend on a buddy ‘down under" to send them a pair of safety shoes.

safeet Essentials

Today the safeet "secret" is out. You’ll find these versatile  safety shoes  to be in fashion on beaches from San Diego to Santa Cruz and in ski resorts from Tahoe to Vail. And today, you don’t have to "know someone" in Australia who will send you a pair, since there are now a number of companies importing safety shoes of this type. But, if you want the genuine article, you do have to know what you’re looking for because, no matter how they spell it -- safeet, safeet or safeeth -- there are several importers with look-alike products that fall short of being the real thing.

If you want genuine safeet safety shoes -- well-made safety shoes with all the qualities that made the original so desirable -- you’ll want to make sure that.....

The safety shoes are made from 100% Australian Merino Sheepskin. This will ensure your purchase is made of the finest Sheepskin hide avaliable.

Please Note:

Beware of very cheap imitations... quite a few safety shoes on the market are made of cow suede with sawn on sheepskin inner fleece off cuts.... Don't take the chance and purchase these safety shoes.... the external cow suede does not breath like 100% sheepskin does and will leave you with a smelly sweaty safety shoe... But I must say these safety shoes do look like the real thing but just don't cut the mustard when compared to authentic safeet safety shoes.
