The inspiration behind creating this blog on Shoe Covers, stemmed from a recent emergency service call from a plumber. It was the night before a holiday party when our sewer and drains started to backup. Figures! Anyhow, the first thing the plumber did before walking into our house was slip on a pair of shoe covers, much like the ones pictured to the left. My first reaction was, “Hey, We Sell Those!” Previously, the topic of shoe covers would stir up images of a biomedical laboratory or operating room. Since then, I couldn’t help but notice other uses, including mandatory use when wearing street shoes around the pool at my health club and even thinking how handy it would be to have a pair of covers when having to run back into the house after realizing that I left my coffee sitting on the kitchen counter.
With all that being said, here are some of the other advantages I’ve come up with for using shoe and boot covers:
- Non-Skid Sole Provides Maximum Traction on Wet and Smooth Surfaces
- Superior Coefficient of Friction
- Impervious Material Construction
- Clean, Low-Linting Fabric
Most shoe covers are rigorously tested and manufactured in an ISO Certified facility and have a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency of 99%. Where serious attention needs to be addressed for effective contamination control and protection from liquid-splash and dry-particulate clean-room hazards, Boot Covers add all of the same features including Nonskid PVC Soles, plus elastic tops and ankles.
On a lighter note, my research has not uncovered any offerings of fashion colors or styles, unless you want to consider Shoes Crocs. Choices typically being white or blue. But then again, the intentions are not going out for nightclubbing. Stephen G
