safety shoes

Started in 2009 as the brain child of our fearless leader. He saw a gap in the market for another serious supplier and distributor of well manufactured but affordably priced steel toe cap safety shoes and safety boots in South Africa. He began importing a core range of about 9 styles to suit specific industry needs. It quickly found homes with some of the most recognised construction, mining, agricultural and engineering firms in South Africa. In 2016, the range rapidly accelerated to 19 styles and a set of comfort adding accessories. Core focus on high efficiency and stock availability, firmly cemented ProFit as a niche brand offering all the bells and whistles for the entire industrial and agricultural sector. Today we have 33 styles available from Certified Distribution Partners in 9 countries across Southern Africa.

We have proudly sold 3 029 317 pairs of safety shoes to date!
