Steel toe boot premium chukka



Working from a small garage in Southern California in 2001, ChefTrapps®, the Slip Resistant and Safety Shoe Company was founded by Gary Trappler.
Born and also married into a three generations of family footwear companies and also a qualified lawyer, Gary Trappler was commissioned by a large US company to design and manufacture slip resistant footwear which would stand the test of scrutiny in United States courts for damages claims by employees who slipped and fell and injured themselves in the workplace.
After 18 months of research and laboratory testing, a final prototype was developed and samples were given to hospitality staff in Los Angeles and Las Vegas to test in the toughest and most slippery work environments.
The outcome was successful and ChefTrapps® started supplying US hospitality companies with their footwear requirements.
After relocating with his family back to South Africa in 2004 the product became of instant interest and very soon, all major food franchise stores made ChefTrapps® Slip Resistant Footwear compulsory wok wear.
The product then found favour amongst a variety of industries in particular the security industry where security guards found the traction provided by ChefTrapps® Slip Resistant Footwear useful when it came to pursuing suspects.
It found favour in all other industries particularly those which had floor surfaces that tended to be wet and slippery.

ChefTrapps® then found its footing with newly developed footwear which were found to be appropriate in the agricultural industry such as wine farms and generally with workers who toil the soil.
With the development of our steel toe range, ChefTrapps® Slip Resistant and Safety Footwear became popular across all sectors of industry.
We now proud ourselves in being the leading and foremost importer and supplier of Slip Resistant and Safety footwear.
