Can a pair of safety shoes help you burn calories, tone and strengthen your body and ease joint pain? Slimming safety shoes?Slimming safety shoes: do they really exist safetyshoestoday

The answer mostly depends from what your job is.

Let’s start from something general: casual shoes for losing weight were born as special footwear for people with diabetes or weight problems, but nowadays these products are widely marketed as sport shoes for toning up and losing weight, to the point that more and more manufacturers are adopting this marketing strategy.

Just to name one: the famous MBT shoes ( Actually, though, there are some differences in terms of technical properties and design between safety and toning shoes, but the basic principles remain the same. Let’s go through it.

Casual, slimming shoes have outsoles with an unstable supporting surface and a very curved profile. Walking wearing such shoes is a bit like training to balance, or like moving bare-footed on a sandy beach. The producers say that this instability forces you to use muscles that normally you “wouldn’t even consider”, such as some of the many muscles of the feet, legs, gluteus and stomach, which could really lead to a weight loss. Moreover, these shoes could also improve your gait and posture, and put less pressure in your joints.

It almost looks like these toning shoes offer an easy solution to stay fit, and this is most certainly true, at least to some extent. However, do not expect to get the same benefits of an hour in the gym: this effect helps to tone up the muscles, but it’s not enough alone. This sounds already like a good start, though, don’t you think?

Further studies are being carried out, on the way slimming shoes can influence body balance over time.

Normally what makes you lose weight is the physical activity your perform when working, if you also maintain a healthy diet, just like for slimming shoes. The most flexible safety– and work shoes improve blood circulation, so reducing legs swelling and allowing the draining of liquids.

To be more precise, there is no safety footwear specifically conceived for losing weight, but there are shoes with curved soles that set certain muscles in motion, as well as comfortable shoes that guarantee freedom of movement, so allowing to keep active at work; there also are comfortable shoes that keep muscles more relaxed and make you feel less tired at the end of the day, so allowing you to exercise after work, which will make you lose weight. Finally, there is uncomfortable footwear which causes physical stress (and, therefore also psychological), which characterize a wrong lifestyle which can affect physical health negatively. Comfortable shoes tend to do the exact opposite.

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.
