Check Out Our Non-Slip School Shoes
If you wandered to this page, you must be in search of non-slip shoes. Are you working for hospitality, food, or aged care businesses?
People working in these places need non-slip shoes with enough support to ensure safety. It's not easy to be constantly exposed to fluids and slippery surfaces because the risk of accidental slips and trips is high.
Without the protection of non-slip shoes, this could result in a permanent injury.
Everflex understands the risks and has ensured that all their slip-resistant footwear adheres to your needs. So why risk losing mobility or spending much money when you can arm yourself with affordable non-slip shoes?
The team at Everflex would like to help acquaint you with the features of the non-slip shoes, so you'll better understand how the footwear keeps you safe. So, if you're ready, let's start!
1. Slip-resistant sole
Workers in the food industry have constant exposure to spillages as they deal with beverages like water, juice, soda, and alcohol daily. As such, there's a high risk of slipping when you're not wearing non-slip shoes from Everflex.
The footwear's slip-resistant sole protects you from falling when you come into contact with liquid.
This feature creates friction between the shoes and the ground they walk on. You avoid slipping because the sole lets liquid pass through instead of being collected underneath children's feet. How is this possible?
The Everflex school shoes have treads or grooves on the soles that work hard to keep you steady.
Flip the footwear over, and you'll likely find circles, hexagons, and squiggles underneath. To ensure increased friction from your slip-resistant school shoes, look for grooves with smaller spaces between them.
2. Oil-resistant outsole
Scalding oil is another health hazard that people in the food industry deal with daily. With the help of an oil-resistant outsole, the non-slip shoes ensure that you remain safe from any degree of burn.
Working in the kitchen makes you susceptible to oil splashes, or worse, oil spills from the pans, meaning they're hot.
The oil-resistant outsole feature of the Everflex slip-resistant school shoes works by preventing the oil from seeping through the material, saving your toes and feet from burning.
Getting hit by scalding oil is not a joke. The effect depends on the degree of the burn. For instance, first-degree burns affect the outer skin layer of the child's foot and cause swelling, redness, and pain.
Meanwhile, second-degree burns affect the outer and underlying layer of the skin, which cause pain, redness, swelling, and blistering. Who knows what kind of treatment you would require if they're not wearing slip-resistant school shoes?
3. Commercial-grade non-marking rubber outsole
This feature of slip-resistant school shoes is most useful when navigating slippery floors and busy hallways.
Workers in the hospitality industry usually deal with crowded rooms, whether in hotels or theme parks, which require them to move sideways and change directions quickly.
Players of indoor sports like badminton, volleyball, and basketball wear footwear equipped with this feature to protect them from slipping while they move across the court. This same protection is helpful for workers who wear Everflex non-slip shoes.
More importantly, your workplace's floors, entryways, and walkways will remain shiny and scratch-free as the rubber outsoles are non-marking.
4. Heel impact cushioning for shock absorption and support
Working in all the mentioned industries must constantly be moving for most of their shift – delivering food, carrying dishes, supporting patients, bringing medical records, lifting heavy luggage in hotels, etc.
With all the weight, strain, and movement they do, your child's feet will need enough support and comfort from slip-resistant school shoes.
Thankfully, the Everflex non-slip shoes have heel impact cushioning for shock absorption and support.
This feature is helpful for aged care workers who must lift patients twice their weight or bellhops transferring luggage inside rooms because it absorbs the extra pressure.
5. Flexible and padded innersole for all-day comfort
Since workers of the various industries mentioned need to be on their feet for most of their shift, they need slip-resistant supportive footwear with a flexible and padded innersole for all-day comfort.
It helps relieve the pressure from all the standing, walking, and rushing the workers need to do to accomplish their tasks promptly. Having enough toe room will also prevent foot aches. Suitable footwear will ensure this.
Additional Characteristics of Non-Slip Kids School Shoes
While there's a separate collection of men's non-slip shoes from the women's category, both have all the features we mentioned. So aside from the five characteristics we explained, here are additional ones to describe the slip-resistant footwear available.
Both collections include lace-up styles for adjustability. You can tighten or loosen the fit of your non-slip shoes as necessary.
Another benefit of laces is better ankle support, which you need as you move around at work. In addition, non-slip shoes can protect not just your child's toes but also the ankle from twisting as they hurry to finish their task.
Moreover, the Everflex slip-resistant footwear collection comes in black, which passes all dress code requirements, even those of schools.
As such, several students with part-time work choose non-slip shoes that work correctly with uniforms for both the classroom/school and work. That way, they get protection the entire day and do not need to bring extra footwear to work.
On top of all these, the Everflex range of non-slip shoes is vegan-friendly. In addition, the materials used in making the footwear did not come from animals.
Using vegan-friendly non-slip shoes is good for the environment because they don't harm animals, have a low carbon footprint, and require less energy to produce.
