Difference Between Work Shoes and Regular Shoes

NewsID:135    Datetime:2010-12-20

 

Often when you start a new job they tell you to purchase work boots. Work boots are often believed to be any shoe that looks appropriate for work, but in reality there are a number of work boots that are created specifically to ensure your safety in your workplace, even if you work at a job that does not appear to be unsafe.
Cashier
One example of work boots that most people do not realize are a safety concern is that of the cashier – a cashier stands in once place for a long period of time as they ring people up. That standing is not good for your back, legs or feet. In addition, some cashiering jobs put you at risk for dropping heavy objects.
They make work boots for being a cashier, despite the belief that you cannot injure yourself as a cashier. These boots are made to stand comfortably and have protection on the toes in case an item drops.
Construction et al.
There are also the more well known work boots for more physical jobs like construction, logging and freight. At these jobs, safety is a more easily recognizable concern, as a single brick falling on one's toe can shatter it in several places, and the amount of walking with heavy objects can put a great deal of strain on the legs and back. Here, work boots are designed with a great deal of safety in mind, but also durability, as a shoe that falls apart after only moderate use is a shoe that is not going to protect someone at work.

Regular Boots
Regular boots have none of this protection, and even if you buy a cushioning sole for your shoe, it is highly unlikely that the cushion will be enough to withstand regular use. Most cushions are made for walking comfort and odor absorption only. Beyond that, they do not keep your feet comfortable or your back and legs straight, and they do not have added protection like work boots do for any falling objects.
Summary
As you can see, there are work boots for almost every job you can find. Whether you are constantly working with heavy objects or you are simply standing in once place, your feet not the only things that can get injured – they are also vitally important for the health of your back and legs (as well as walking in general), and work boots are the best way to make sure you do not injure yourself.
