Going from an office setting to an industrial site or warehouse is the norm for many people. You dress for your office in clean, crisp business wear but what do you do when you make an in-person visit to sites that may feature workplace hazards like forklifts, uneven terrain and heavy machinery? The answer is safety footwear that works with office attire. Below you’ll find different styles for men and women that will take you from your desk to the warehouse without losing a step.
Safety shoes designed to look similar to athletic sneakers are the perfect solution for both the office and work site. Additionally, if you’ll be walking long distances, this work boot style will do the trick. Opt for a black shoe with a composite plate, aluminum toe and shock resistant technology. A shoe with a rubber heel and forefoot pads will allow you to achieve maximum comfort – and keep you steady when you’re on uneven ground. If you want to keep sweat away, choose a shoe with moisture wicking technology, breathable microfiber and micro-mesh construction.

They may look casual, but in fact these safety shoes are often complete with anti-slip technology, steel toe reinforcement and static dissipation. Wear these with a suit and no one will know that they’re more than just a fancy shoe.
Slip-ons may prove to be exactly what you need when going from the office to the warehouse. With this work boot style, you’re getting a comfort and style.
