Home > Maximus and Spartacus

With the introduction of the Maximus boot and the Spartacus shoe, Lemaitre sets a new standard in general purpose safety footwear by bringing customers more of the things that matter to them.

More comfort. More innovation. More durability. More quality

With product design guided and inspired by Lemaitre’s top-selling Maxeco safety boot and Robust safety shoe, Maximus and Spartacus sport the features that made Maxeco a house-hold name in general purpose safety footwear—as well as various product enhancements and innovations.


COMFORT: Maximus and Spartacus feature several improvements on wearer comfort. These include: a lighter sole unit, a padded leather collar that provides ankle support and a heel grip counter lining to prevent the shoe slipping off.
DURABILITY: Full leather uppers allow the wearer’s feet to breathe and increases the durability and longevity of the product. This enables the employer to extract maximum value from his workplace safety footwear investment.
SAFETY: A sole unit 3mm wider than the Maxeco not only provides increased wearer comfort, but provides improved slip-resistance, better stability and reduced shock impact. The inclusion of a bellows tongue prevents dirt and debris from entering the shoe and the D-rings allow for quick and easy lacing and unlacing. The inclusion of a reflective insert further enhances the wearer’s visibility in evening conditions.
QUALITY: Maximus and Spartacus are locally manufactured in an ISO 9001 accredited factory and bear the SANS 20345 quality mark.


Maximus and Spartacus are available to order from leading PPE distributors throughout South
Africa and the SADEC region from July 2017.
