If you use safety shoes every day for your work for many hours a day and these cause you problems or pain, this article on safety shoes and accessories for foot problems will probably help you understand how to solve them!

Yes, because compared to the shoes you wear in your free time, safety shoes have characteristics that sometimes create real foot problems, and therefore the worker starts a continuous search for the best shoe to solve these problems, but the question is : is there a safety shoe that solves them all?

In our opinion there is no safety shoe that solves all foot problems, but certainly choosing your next shoe well based on your problem could be a really good idea.

Is it worth investing in a better safety shoe?

Let’s not forget that you use safety shoes about 8/10 hours a day, 5 days a week, we are talking about 40/50 hours a week, a healthy foot is worth money in your case, because working with a foot that hurts wants say to work badly, work less, and in some cases do not work at all .. if on average a safety shoe would last a year and cost even 80 pounds, is it worth investing 40 cents a day for your health, efficiency, productivity? I would say yes, and in fact it is more and more (and you can see it walking on the street) that the workers have decided to choose their own safety shoes, also spending from their own pockets in order to have a performing shoe on their feet!

Safety shoes and accessories for foot problems

The title of this paragraph serves to explain you that not only the solution to your problem may consist of a new and better shoe, but it could simply be the use of an accessory for the foot, in this case you will not even have to bear the investment of a new safety shoe and you can safely use the one you already use. That’s why we’ll talk about safety shoes and accessories.

Robert Frog
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.
