Revolutionising the mining gumboot

The translation of the isiZulu word, Stimela, means 'steam engine or locomotive'. And at Neptun Boot, (the manufacturers of Stimela) we are 'steaming ahead' with new innovation in the mining boot industry with the creation of the Stimela gumboot.

In 2005, Neptun Boot set out to revolutionise the footwear industry. The Stimela gumboot, with its unique features, was tested under severe South African conditions, to deliver a world class mining boot. Stimela boasts a number of advanced comfort and safety features that reduce fatigue and ultimately improve productivity.
