The MACSOLE® rubber sole that leaves no tread marks

A true specialist in rubber soles, Heckel has been making its own advances in footwear technology for more than twenty years. Heckel’s products offer unparalleled slip resistance, resistance to extreme temperatures and durability.

Specifically designed for working with tarmac, the new MACSOLE® ASPHALT rubber sole has a smooth flat tread pattern to avoid marking the tarmac, all while providing excellent slip resistance. This also makes it suitable for a wide variety of other applications, including working with machinery.


Thermal insulation & comfort

The shoe’s multi-layer design has been specifically developed for use when working on extremely hot surfaces, providing thermal insulation and comfort for the wearer.

  1. hygienic insole layer with superior abrasion resistance | high moisture-absorption capacity | aluminised for improved thermal insulation
  2. durable non-woven insulating insole layer
  3. steel penetration-resistant insert provides penetration resistance
  4. insulating insert provides protection against heat over the entire surface of the foot
  5. PU layer for improved shock and vibration absorption over the entire surface of the foot | anti-fatigue effect
  6. MACSOLE® outsole with integrated heel support | resistant to contact heat up to 300°C (HRO)
