Elegant safety shoes: jobs where they are required

Elegant safety shoes

Almost all manufacturers have a line of elegant footwear, because there are many jobs where it is inappropriate to wear shoes that look like they can only be used in a factory. Such lines of work often require formal behavior and look. In particular, we are talking about:

  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • Instructors
  • Head of security
  • Physicians working in industry
  • Construction site and yard inspectors
  • Health inspector

In such jobs you can meet several different environments, and sometimes you will have to face the elements: winter, summer, cold, hot, rain. Any weather condition can occur, so the right kind of elegant safety footwear for your needs should protect your feet, but at the same time it should let them breathe and give you a classy look, so a good article of safety shoes suited for uniforms and office work will be of great help.

But a job in this sector doesn’t involve a single task. Therefore, the risks are different according to the activity you perform, and so do the type of elegant safety footwear you should wear.


Elegant safety shoes: types of protection

Elegant safety shoes

Almost every shoe type has versions that offer long-lasting protection. In this case, a valid article of classic-looking safety footwear must have the following characteristics:

The sole can be of any type, although in this case single-density PU is the best material. On the other hand, it is preferable to choose a metallic toecap, because it is thinner and makes the footwear look better.

Elegant safety shoes: distinctive characteristics

Normally a pair of shoes is called elegant if they are black and made of leather, with not too many visible seams. Moreover, the shape of the outsole should follow a straight line, and its design doesn’t have to look too “industrial” (like, for instance, with many cleats). Finally, the protective toecap should be as thin as possible, made of materials like aluminum or steel.

Often elegant safety footwear tends to have a “classic walking shoes” look, with thin laces, internal leather lining (rather than fabric) and generally the padding is not too evident.

Elegant ladies’ safety shoes

Even though some think that nice-looking safety shoes are products mostly designed for female workers, the truth is very different. I firmly believe that women are as important as men in a work environment, which is why the shoe industry keeps offering its customers increasingly complete collections of elegant and comfortable safety footwear that also provides high levels of protection. Regardless of your profession or your wardrobe a big variety of elegant safety shoes for every occasion exists on the market, specially made to give you the look you are looking for and at the same time provide you reliable protection.

I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems. Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort. During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes. Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
