Safety always first for Holeys Japan

Apr '08
Some of Holeys other safety features in footwear include:
• Fit: Holeys has designed their footwear with a narrower fit. By contrast, some of the clogs on the market are more floppy and loose fitting.

• Round edges on the side and base of footwear: the sleek designs of the Critters Clog, XP2 and Getaway models are less prone to be pinched or caught by the edges of escalators.

• Closed Toe Ends: openings are removed from the forefoot to protect toes from debris such as rocks, broken glass or sticks. This also prevents toe exposure on escalators & protects the toes when footwear is stubbed against rocks or ledges.

Holeys has developed an entire children's product line, Critters by Holeys. This fun line embodies positive social values, community involvement and safety. The Critters line will include marketing campaigns related to Kids Safety and key messages will be seen at point of sale as well as advertising.

While Holeys is constantly innovating to create safe products, they also caution parents to take extra care with their younger children on any escalator, regardless of what they are wearing.

A number of things can get caught in escalators such as shoelaces, long jeans, and long hair. It is recommended to pick children up when going onto an escalator or getting off.
