The Gaston MILLE brands
GASTON MILLE, PREMIUM BRAND, SAFETY FOOTWEAR SPECIALIST
FRENCH MANUFACTURER OF SAFETY SHOES
Gaston MILLE has been thinking, designing, testing and manufacturing each model for more than 100 years in the family factory today in Courthézon in the Vaucluse. A unique place where all the divisions dedicated to the brand's products are located.
Thanks to the research and development centre, the brand benefits from all the innovations on the market, both on a technical and ergonomic level. It allows Gaston MILLE to propose always more innovative products.
The Research Department designs each model with the same quality of comfort and durability. In the background, the definition of the products is done according to the constraints specific to each activity universe.
The Quality department has a laboratory specifically equipped to ensure compliance with European safety standards. It intervenes upstream of the manufacturing process to validate the safest materials and the most efficient suppliers, and also downstream. Its role is to provide after-sales service and to carry out corrective analyses on the models in production in order to constantly improve the products.
The manufacturing team conscientiously checks each foot with the same high standards of quality and compliance.
This unique place of creation allows the optimal control of each stage of realization and the guarantee of the Gaston MILLE quality. In order to ensure the best reactivity and a perfect control of the production, Gaston MILLE has the capacity to manufacture each of its models entirely in France.
Gaston MILLE, it is the insurance of a French manufacturer.
GASTON MILLE, A FRENCH MANUFACTURER WITH CENTURY-OLD KNOW-HOW
GASTON MILLE SINCE 1912
1912® is the date that the Gaston MILLE company was founded, which now has more than a century’s worth of experience in the footwear business.

The brand's footwear is renowned for combining safety, comfort, quality and robustness with industry-specific requirements.
It is worn by workers in logistics, construction and industry as well as by workers in specific environments such as oil rigs or foundries.
1912® is committed to the craftsmanship of French industry and the values of Made in France.
OUR ADMIRATION FOR THE WOMAN
A WOMAN AT THE ORIGIN OF GASTON MILLE
Félicie MILLE is actually the co-founder of Gaston MILLE.
She embarked on her new venture and her manufacturing facility in Orange while her husband, Gaston, was away serving in the war.
Félicie is the first woman to have started manufacturing work shoes in France.
It seemed obvious to name our new range of exclusively female shoes after Félicie, a tribute to the committed activist that she was.
We created footwear that is adapted to the morphology of the female foot, with a distinct, elegant and sturdy style for women at work.
Women finally have a complete footwear range created specifically for them, made in France, that is intended for workers in industry, construction and logistics.
Félicie® guarantees French manufacturing, ensuring safety, quality, comfort and elegance for women at work.
HAPPY AT WORK!
THE 'SO FRENCHY' GASTON MILLE® LOOK
Smile® is a range that aims to bring employees around to wearing personal protective equipment.
It is the expression of a major break away from tradition and a modern take on footwear design, while continuing to meet industry requirements.
It has been designed primarily with comfort, aesthetics and high slip resistance on ceramic floors in mind, as well as for dynamic and intensive professions that involve constant movement, but also require standing and static postures.
This collection is intended for the general public which demands the basics of comfort, aesthetics, sturdiness, anti-slip, anti-static and shock absorption at the heel.
It is encouraging the next generation to wear safety shoes.
Employees in catering, agri-food, hygiene and healthcare settings wear the Smile® range.
Smile®, the footwear range that helps you find your “smile” at work.
The ‘so frenchy’ Gaston MILLE® style will appeal to catering, service industry, hygiene and health staff.

THE RESULT OF THE WORK OF 2 HISTORICAL MANUFACTURERS GASTON MILLE® AND MICHELIN®
THE EXPERTISE OF 2 FRENCH MANUFACTURERS
The French Connection® range is the result of a partnership between two historic French manufacturers, Gaston MILLE® and Michelin®.
The collaboration has produced some of the best PPE products on the market.
The thin, stylish sole made from expanded dual-material rubber and polyurethane is particularly non-slip with good grip.
Lightweight, comfortable and suitable for all types of terrain, the trainers in the range are equipped with the DonutSystem® 360° designed to absorb shock in the heel.
The upper is made from leather or technical textiles with thermal printing depending on the style.
These aesthetic and very-non-slip trainers would be ideal for indoor and outdoor work in construction, industry and logistics environments.
GM's by Gaston MILLE
THE GM'S BRAND IS A BIT LIKE THE LITTLE SISTER OF GASTON MILLE, ITS ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE
The GM’s brand could be seen as Gaston MILLE's little sister, its more economical alternative.
GM's can rely on Gaston MILLE's expertise regarding the design of safety boots, with identical expectations for the quality of the nished product.
GM's boots are designed by the same teams as the models of the Gaston MILLE brand itself, and are developed along the same lines, with the common aim of our clients' comfort and satisfaction. What is the difference then?
The GM's by Gaston MILLE products are manufactured in Asia, where Gaston MILLE has taken great pains to choose partners who have the capacity to manufacture quality products according to stringent specifications, thus fully satisfying the requirements of our customers on the European and world markets.
Just as in our French factory, a Gaston MILLE supervisor is in attendance at our partner's plant in Asia, directly checking the quality of the products all along the production line.
To ensure the quality that has made Gaston MILLE's reputation, our teams also take care of the GM's products after-sales.
GM's - a unique brand for fully functional products at an optimum quality-price ratio!
