Cleanroom Shoe Crocs

As a continuation from my previous blog on Shoe Covers, I made mention in my blog about the covers having a “lack of fashion”.  Naturally, I was being facetious, but I did want to touch upon Shoe Crocs as an alternative to shoe covers.  Features of Crocs, like the ones pictured to the left are specifically designed to meet stringent cleanroom compliance standards and significantly reduce fatigue during use.  They feature shock absorbing properties that minimize stress on the feet, lower legs, knees, hips, and lower back. The foam-based material is bacteria and odor-resistant.  They are also proven to resist mildew and varied fungi.  Equipped with a wide base and an anatomically designed heel and medical arch support, they ensure a secure and stable fit. Ventilation ports reduce temperature within the shoe for added comfort. 

The black conductive semi Crocs® are static-dissipative and provide long-term surface resistivity of 1×105–1×108. Sterilizable in water and bleach.They  are suitable for use in ISO Class 7 (FED-STD-209E Class 10,000/M5.5) cleanroom environments. They also offer a low particle generation of >0.5µm. The soles are slip-resistant and conform to ASTM F1677 slip-resistance standards.

I suppose they will also save from filling our landfills with disposable shoe covers.  On top of that, they’re not bad looking.  StephenG
