The work shoes are tested daily to check that there are no manufacturing defects, so that they can serve throughout their useful life, maintaining their properties. The service life of safety shoes depends not only on their quality, but also on their correct functioning. Here are some key rules you should follow when using safety shoes so that your shoes last a lifetime.
First, it is necessary to observe the correct daily wearing time of special footwear. Ideally, it shouldn't exceed nine hours a day.
Secondly, in order not to feel discomfort and discomfort while wearing shoes at work, it is necessary to choose the right size of safety shoes. It is important to pay attention to the fact that safety shoes should not be excessively narrow and have protective toe caps which can cause discomfort in the toe if the number is too low compared to the size of the foot. Although our shoes fit well and reflect the sizes of usual shoes, it is advisable as a yardstick to buy one size larger than your size, so that the foot can be well protected and rest comfortably inside the shoe.
Thirdly, for safety footwear to last as long as possible and be used throughout its entire life cycle, it must be put on and taken off correctly. To put on your shoes, you must first unfasten them, open the zippers and closures, straighten the insoles, as well as check for foreign objects, damage of any kind and make sure that the humidity is not excessive inside the shoes. Shoes can only be worn if the inside surface is in good condition and relatively dry.

It is dangerous to use shoes if they are not fastened properly, as it can lead to injuries such as a dislocated foot while walking and other injuries.

After using the shoes, it is necessary to visually assess the presence of damage: if present, these must be repaired immediately and, if impossible, the shoes can only be replaced and a new pair purchased.
After use, safety shoes must be cleaned of visible dirt and dried well, also removing moisture from the outside of the shoe; however, this type of shoes should not be dried at high temperatures, otherwise the footwear may become deformed. You can use special means for drying safety shoes - this not only simplifies the drying process, but also allows you to additionally disinfect the shoes.
