Many hard working jobs in the healthcare, hospitality, maintenance and food service industries require long hours of being on your feet. A lot has been said about sitting at a desk all day, but standing five hours a day contributes to significant and prolonged lower-limb muscle fatigue, a small study concluded. This mean more then just foot pain, this also may raise your risk for long-term back pain, knee pain, and hip problems.
With these type of industry jobs safety is a big concern for both employer and employee. Slip-resistant shoes reduce the possibility of slips due to oil, grease, water, and other types of spills in work place. SAS’ slip-resistant shoes are specifically made to give you support, stability, and comfort throughout the work day. Features include water resistant leather, TRIPAD® technology, a removable CoolSTEP™ footbed, and most importantly, SAS X-Tra Grip™ sole.
The SAS X-tra Grip Sole® has outperformed industry standards using the Brungraber Mark II testing method for wet and oily conditions. The unique hexagon shape rubber outsole pattern helps to channel floor spills to maintain effective contact with floor surfaces and is non-marking. Our polyurethane midsole is a lightweight and flexible component that provides comfort without compromising support.
