US company introduces lights for site boots

A company that developed LED lights that attach to training shoes for night-time joggers has now developed an industrial version for nightshift construction workers.

Night Shift Shoe Lights are the latest addition to the Night Tech Gear product line, which also includes the Night Runner and the Night Trek.

Attached to bootlaces, Night Shift provides hands-free lighting in low-light work environments with 400 lumens of LED lights that, it is claimed, deliver 300 feet of forward beam and visibility from all sides. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 10 hours, the manufacturer says.

“After 35 years in the construction industry, I know safety is of paramount importance, and Night Shift Shoe Lights help protect those in the workplace from falls and collisions due to dark working conditions,” said Doug Storer, CEO and founder of Orlando-based Night Tech Gear.

The Night Shift Shoe Lights feature a patented, proprietary technology that includes two shoe lights illuminating the space ahead of the worker, while rear-facing lights keep the wearer visible to other workers or vehicles from all angles. The case is water and dust resistant and mounted on an adjustable shoelace-clip that is described as being ultra-secure.  Each light weighs 2.4 ounces and comes with a rechargeable battery pack that lasts up to 10 hours and can be replaced with an additional battery pack for longer use.
