Lifestyle Safety Shoes: Everything You Need to Know

| | Sumit Roy

Protective gear is imperative in hazardous work environments. Unsafe work environments can range from greasy, slippery, or wet floors to uneven gravel. Safety shoes that abide by safety regulations are a must for workers working in heavy-duty industries such as construction, mining, and metallurgy. Such shoes are adequately sturdy to withstand the wrath of biting conditions and sustain the everyday hustle.  

The Switch From Safety To Lifestyle Safety: Striking Safety Shoes 

For a while, insufficient attention was paid to the aesthetics of these safety shoes. The look of these shoes has always remained secondary to their damage-resistant capabilities. The prioritization of the latter is understandable since it’s a matter of health and safety. However, meeting industry norms with the changing consumer demands is paramount. Hence, these heavy-duty shoes are now being designed with added aesthetics which is a welcome bonus feature. Loaded with various textures, colours, and styles, these shoes are being labelled as ‘Lifestyle safety shoes’.  

Features of Lifestyle Safety Shoes 

Tailored to specific industries, such lifestyle safety shoes feature different types of protective resistance. Therefore, before buying them, you must know how the different types and their applications play out – 

Lightweight – Fit For Long Hours 

With knitted polyester uppers come better moisture-resistant capabilities. In addition, polyester reduces the overall weight of these shoes. The uppers are lined with air mesh fabric that provides ample breathability that supports long hours of usage.  

Alluring Aesthetics – Captures Everyone’s Attention 

Available in shades of green, orange, blue, and grey to name a few, these lifestyle safety shoes have stylishly designed uppers that up the aesthetic quotient by several notches. The look and flair of these shoes make the wearer stand out elegantly – both in and outside of the workplace. 

Supremely Comfortable –  Protective Footwear Relaxing to Wear 

PU soles have a lower density than other materials. This is why it has a softer texture and high elasticity. These characteristics make them extremely comfortable to wear. With polyester knitted uppers with breathable air mesh lining, these shoes facilitate adequate ventilation that prevents the interiors from overheating making them fit for extended hours of usage.  

Why The Need For Lifestyle Safety Shoes? 

The heavy-duty work environment presents significant pitfalls to the safety of the workers. After toiling for extended hours, there arises a need to participate in recreational activities. This is where lifestyle safety shoes offer the added advantage of aesthetics over your average safety shoes. Mallcom’s Lifestyle Safety shoes bring the best of both worlds – the value of safety and the significance of style.

The Importance Of Certification in Lifestyle Safety Shoes
