In the energy industry, workers are often subject to long hours on their feet in the harshest conditions. Built from the ground up, both the PetroKing XT and LT lines are constructed by bonding the upper directly to the sole for an agile boot that offers stability on uneven surfaces. The high-quality foot bed and outsole system offers shock absorption, breathability, sole puncture resistance and four layers of cushioning. Utilizing premium, fiberglass-composite toe caps along with a primarily metal-free package makes PetroKing rugged and comfortable without the weight and bulk.

“We strategically built PetroKing by listening to our customers in the energy sector and designing a boot line to not only meet but exceed their expectations,” said Glenn Bingen, international product line manager at Red Wing Shoe Company. “Our product development and customer support teams know these workers operate in the most extreme and demanding conditions, and it was our goal to enable their productivity, comfort and most of all safety with a stand-out footwear solution.”

PetroKing features 16 styles to meet the needs of almost every job in the energy industry. For example, the PetroKing XT includes an oxford style, 8-inch side zip boot and an 8-inch boot incorporating Boa® lacing for getting in and out fast and easy. In addition, the 11-inch pull-on boot has a FLEXGRIP™ panel that grips around the ankle, expanding to allow the heel to easily enter and exit and contracting for a tight, comfortable fit with superior ankle support for the stability needed in more challenging work settings.

Additional features include:

  • Patented D3O® impact protection technology for exceptional defense from harmful drops. Incorporated around the ankle and metatarsal, D3O® material instantly absorbs and dissipates forces that come in contact with the boot to retain flexibility. Incorporated in all PetroKing XT styles, the soft, lightweight material is waterproof and temperature-stable for on-the-job comfort.
  • TredMax rubber outsole for best slip-resistant technology for wet and oily environments, including perimeter lugs for traction on angled surfaces. PetroKing XT and LT styles offer electrical hazard (EH) and static-dissipative (SD) options to meet job-specific needs.

All Red Wing products undergo in-house laboratory testing, in addition to third-party testing and field testing in extreme work environments to ensure they pass or surpass global safety standards including EN ISO and ASTM. Red Wing offers complete head-to-toe protection for energy companies worldwide through its assortment of personal protective equipment (PPE) offerings. That not only incudes its renowned work boots like PetroKing, but flame-resistant workwear, gloves, safety glasses and other high-performance gear.
