Your All-Day Ally

We’re not your average shoe company, and we like it that way. For us, safety is number one. We’re a team of athletes, gamers, coaches, gardeners, musicians and artists who’ve worked in many of the industries we now serve. Our diversity and first-hand experience help us better understand your specific challenges and bring creative solutions to the table.

And the one thing we ALL agree on is that safety solutions should be simple and help you pursue your passions on the job. That’s why at SR Max®, we provide corporate programs that are fit to empower.

Our Story Begins

Even though we’ve been making waves in the slip-resistant arena for more than 15 years, our safety footwear expertise goes back more than 40. Husband and wife team Bob and Ann Kubis founded our parent company, Saf-Gard® Safety Shoe Company in 1980, and after many acquisitions and tremendous growth, the owners saw a huge gap in the safety footwear industry: slip-resistant shoe programs.

SR Max® Comes On the Scene

Safety managers in the restaurant, healthcare, warehousing and transportation industries were looking for a real slip-resistant shoe partner. They needed an ally who could offer easy-to-use, customizable corporate shoe programs. So, in 2007 we leveraged our experience in the safety shoe business to fill that gap with SR Max®.

By maintaining employee safety, simplicity and service as our top priorities, we continually see injury rates drop, which ultimately helps reduce workers’ comp claims and keeps team members feeling safer and happier on the job.


Introducing Our Patented MaxTRAX® Slip-Resistant Outsole

After seeing an insane number of subpar “slip-resistant” shoes on the market, we decided enough was enough. In 2008 we designed and patented our own slip-resistant outsole (that’s the tread on the bottom of your shoes). We call it MaxTRAX®, and it performs phenomenally in dry, wet, oily and oily/wet environments. In fact, it not only excels in independent testing, but our favorite brands love it too, like Timberland PRO®, Wolverine®, SKECHERS Work, Reebok Work and more.
