FMO – Editors Product Review – Blaklader Workwear Products

Despite quite a challenging time within the workwear market, one manufacturer Blaklader; has still been successful in identifying the demanding needs of the professional tradesman.

We were pleased to take delivery last week of a selection of workboots and trousers from Blaklader’s latest workwear range.

Product Overview:

Safety Boot

The 2315 Safety Boot has a cow leather upper and aluminium or steel toecaps. There is a lower cut at the back of the ankle for greater comfort when driving and a TPU outer sole that’s anti slip, water repellent and oil resistant. They also feature a stability board for increased stability and correct flex point and reinforcement inside the heel area.

We really put the boot through its paces within a demanding build environment and found that the boot performed excellently for comfort, support, breathability and most importantly for safety. We found it performed very well against the usual scuffing associated when especially working with concrete and hardcore.

We were particularly impressed with the steel toed workboots. The workboots offer the worker a robust, supportive and impact resistant boot which is also very comfortable to wear.

We feel the boot is also able to be used in less demanding environments, so this boot could also be well suited for plumbing and carpentry etc.

FMO Product Recommendation – HIGH - FMO is therefore happy to highly recommend this boot to be used by any professional tradesman.

Additional Points:

We were highly impressed by the superior quality of the product which clearly demonstrated to us Blaklader’s attention for detail for a practical, stylish and hardwearing workwear boot.

Urban Trouser

The second product we reviewed was a 1959 X1900 Urban Trouser which combines a modern look with workplace functionality. They’re comfortable, hardwearing and with clever pocket solutions including invisible kneepad pockets. There was also a really handy ruler, pen and telephone pockets.

The stylish trousers showed that their construction was of the highest quality when we attempted to pull aggressively at their seams. The trousers knees were reinforced against repelling wear caused by standard kneeling wear situations. These trousers can easily stand up to prolonged kneeling on hard and abrasive concrete surfaces.

The materials used were strong and resilient enough to easily deal with most of the abuse we hurled at them during the week.

FMO Product Recommendation – HIGH - FMO recommends this product.

James Brunson stated "We were very impressed with the overall quality of the above submitted Blacklader workwear trousers and we were therefore pleased to award the trousers our highest FMO rating and recommendation. We commend the product for combining seamlessly durability and style.
