About Anvil Traction

Anvil Traction is based in Northamptonshire in the UK, at the very heart of the traditional shoe-making industry, where for many generations some of the world’s finest shoes were designed, crafted and manufactured by some of the most talented craftsmen of the time.

Anvil Traction is part of the TRIPAL GROUP which has over 20 years of experience in the footwear industry. The brand was launched in 2011 after the directors of the TRIPAL GROUP identified an increasing demand in the market for a high quality safety shoe that offered increased protection against slips and falls. With an in-house technical team with membership to the EN/TC161 European Safety Standards Committee for foot and leg protection, and in house designers, the TRIPAL GROUP was in an ideal position to embark upon an extensive research and development project and as a result the Anvil Traction brand was launched. The range of slip resistant footwear that the brand offered was an instant success and the quality and high safety standards that it represented was quickly recognised in the market place. Anvil Traction has since gone from strength to strength and is now the UK Market leader within the performance slip resistant footwear category.

Offering a comprehensive range of footwear to a wide variety of market sectors, Anvil Traction continues to develop its products in order to deliver pioneering and innovative solutions to real working day issues. The technical team work continuously to develop sole unit compounds and tread patterns that will provide the wearer with the best possible protection against slips and ensure that the Anvil Traction range of products not only meets certified safety standards but easily surpasses them.

The Anvil Traction range is stocked and shipped from our own warehouse in Northamptonshire ensuring that once you have placed your order, your new boots will be with you as quickly as possible.
