Rebel is excited to add a New Rebel brand "Sheba" to our already versatile and comprehensive collection of quality Rebel Safety footwear.

..(Sheba - Zulu Princess Warrior)

The NEW Sheba brand has been designed to appeal to women who would be required to wear safety footwear at work and who are looking for something a bit more feminine and comfortable than the traditional, ugly safety shoe.

The Rebel SHEBA range is made up of the following quality and comfortable safety boots and safety shoes:

  • Amina Shoe (GL0910)
  • Nandi Brown Shoe (GL0909)
  • Nandi Black Shoe (GL0909)
  • Thazo Boot (GL0911)

Maximum Comfort, Protection and Quality are the underlying principles that run through every aspect of Rebel Safetygear Workboots, the new Sheba range will further strengthen Rebel’s commitment to this approach.

The reality of the economic situation is that while the costs of products are going through the roof, employers still need to try make their PPE spend go further.

Because buying "Affordable Workboots"
does not mean you need to compromise on
Quality, Safety or Comfort!

The FX2 Workboots are geared to compete with and take the current "cheap & nasty" imports market head on, by offering affordable, real value for money safety footwear alternative, without compromising on comfort, safety and quality.

Aurora Primary School is a registered Independent School that was started in 1999 by Veronica Walker, with the sole purpose of providing education and accommodation for disadvantaged children specifically from Ivory Park.

Veronica started the school with just 6 children, and it has grown to almost 110 children in 2009. Along with the growth of the school, there have been major developments in staffing of the school and boarding hostel, volunteer teams, food provision, accommodation and educational needs.

Aurora Primary School and students have been able to grow from strength to strength with the help of the generous donations from sponsors who have supported various building projects, borehole drilling, and the provision of educational equipment and furniture.

Rebel Safety Gear supply Puma® Safety Shoes and Safety Boots through our specialist distributors across South Africa. Please contact us for a Rebel Puma® Distributor in your area!

Rebel's principle safety shoe and safety boot manufacturer, which is a major supplier to the top end of the European industrial market, has received sufficient demand to do just that.

The range offers fibre or composite material toecaps and mid-soles, as well as non-metallic eyelets.

The aim of metal-free safety footwear is to pass through security surveillance equipment without setting off alarms, and to allow easier scanning of workers for stolen goods (on the way out) or weapons (on the way in), without compromising its fundamental intention of protecting the foot.

"But there are other benefits, which are actually byproducts," Cooke says. "Metal-free boots don't interfere with electromagnetic equipment in any way, and they don't transmit heat or coldness." Also, unlike metal, they recover their shape after an impact, which means it's easier to get the foot out of the boot after an accident.

The boots were originally designed for use in mines, or other businesses where theft of small, high value items is a problem, but they are also ideal for high security areas where metal detectors are standard, such as at airports.

Customers can now also be kept up-date with the new product releases, industry news and events by using the "News & Promotions" section of the website or by subscribing to our Rebel Newsletter.
