Jacqueline Griffin Xena Oceania Owner & CEO

"Having worked for some of the largest organisations in NZ and Australia, and in my role as a Senior HR Professional, I understand the importance of safety in the workplace. There was a real lack of diversity in the safety footwear available to women. Women were expected to wear uncomfortable, bulky safety footwear designed for men and this simply did not sit right with me. 

I saw the need for functional and stylish safety footwear designed by women, for women.“

What We Do

Safety Footwear

I believe that women are both beautiful and strong. We deserve footwear with the same qualities. Shoes handcrafted with high quality materials that you would be excited to wear. Boots that look stunning, not bulky masculine-looking clown shoes. 

We push the boundaries of design to create beautiful styles that don’t compromise on function. Xena safety boots are both beauty and beast. They address real pain points of women across industries. Each style is ASTM certified, handcrafted to help you feel safe and confident.
