The MACSOLE® rubber sole that leaves no marks

A true specialist in rubber soles, Heckel has been developing its own 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 slight ribbing 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.
