Clove shoes are well-known for helping nurses and healthcare workers stay comfortable while working long shifts. But many other professions also stand on their feet for long periods of time, and could benefit from a comfortable shoe that is slip-resistant and easy to clean. Before we explore those professions, let’s dive into the basics of what a slip-resistant shoe actually is.
What are Slip-Resistant Work Shoes?
Slip-resistant shoes are shoes that are highly resistant to slipping on wet surfaces due to the dynamics of the shoe sole. Clove shoes are made of a specially formulated rubber that is stickier and grippier than normal shoes, meaning that they can be utilized in a variety of different fields other than just medical.
Who Can Benefit From Slip-Resistant Shoes?
Veterinarians & Vet Techs
Geriatric Patients w/ Foot Issues
Slip-Resistant Shoes for Restaurant Workers
Behind the kitchen door of a restaurant can be quite a hectic place. Spills and accidents happen, and it can be quite slippery during busy hours with the floor being tended to at the end of the night. Chefs, waiters/waitresses, and table runners stand for long periods of time and need to be careful when walking around food and drinks. Clove shoes are perfect for helping restaurant workers stay comfortable on their feet, and at the end of the night they can wash away the special of the day.
What are the Best Shoes for Vet Techs?
Veterinarians are also in the medical field, but tend to animals rather than people (although we may treat our furry friends as one of our own). Whether you are a veterinarian standing during surgery or a vet tech desperately trying to not get bitten or scratched, Clove shoes will keep you comfortable and are resistant to all the liquids caused by non-human patients.
Stylish Geriatric Shoes
Most geriatric shoes are clunky and not very attractive. Clove is here to change that. Comfortable and slip-resistant shoes to help with plantar fasciitis and other foot issues are here! With a wide range of colors to choose from for men and women, these geriatric shoes are extremely easy to get on and off.
Slip-Resistant Shoes for Delivery Drivers
When we think about who would benefit from slip-resistant shoes, delivery drivers are not usually the first thought. However, they can benefit greatly from a comfortable and safe shoe while completing their route during any weather conditions.
US postal workers have extremely strict uniform regulations, but Amazon Prime and other private delivery companies are not as strict with uniform regulations. Clove shoes are great for resisting slippery surfaces caused by inclement weather when making deliveries. Plus, they are super comfortable and help to fight odor.
Are Clove Shoes Slip-Resistant?
We designed our shoes to have a full rubber sole for extra grip from toe to heel, as well as channels that allow liquid (and other things!) to flow away from each step. The rubber is a special formulation that is tackier and stickier than most rubber shoes. As such, Clove shoes are designed to be grippier than the average shoe, in recognition of the working environment of medical professionals and other professions.
