Arbesko - the market leader on safety and occupational footwear on the Scandinavian market

Arbesko is a Swedish family business. We develop and manufacture our own safety and occupational footwear for professional users. Our products can be found with resellers across Europe. The history of Arbesko dates back to 1839, when we lay the foundations for Sweden’s first shoe factory. In 1952 we decided to focus on safety and occupational footwear and have been a trademark for quality, ergonomics and comfort ever since.

Arbesko is one of the first companies in Europe to use theXRD® Material as metatarsal protection. We use the XRD® Material in our Arbesko 651- an extraordinary heat resistant foundry boot.
