Wolverine: Workwear and Work Footwear You Can Count On!

WolverineLogo WPS Blog

Established in Rockford, Michigan in 1883, Wolverine made the original boots that helped build the railroads, the skyscrapers, and the highways, that laid the foundations of the USA we know today. And their patented 1000 mile boot set the standard for long-lasting work gear, all the way back in 1914.

In 1991 came the revolutionary Wolverine DuraShocks that changed the game for the working person, with compression pads in the heel and the forefoot, absorbing shock and returning it to the foot as useable energy. And that is technology they still use today, updated and reworked based on the feet out there on the working sites around the world. Continue Reading…

Do you have Moxie?

Women with Moxie

You’ve heard the phrase. We all have. “She’s got moxie.” But what does that mean? Is moxie some illusive personality trait? Is it a skill you acquire? If you look up the official definition in the dictionary, it will tell you that moxie is a “force of character, determination, or nerve.” In other words, it’s a tough woman who knows how to take control and get things done. She cannot be deterred. That’s something that working women who wear Moxie Trades work boots know well.

When you say “she’s got Moxie,” well, that’s got more than one meaning. It all goes back to the beginning. Moxie Trades was started by a working mom named Marissa McTasney who quit her job at a computer company to learn more hands-on skills. She also learned something else — that working women were often forced to choose to wear unattractive, poorly-fitting men’s work clothing and work boots. So she did something about it. She had moxie. And she could not be deterred. Continue Reading…

Taking Care of your FR Wear

FR Care Blog

Flame resistant (FR) clothing saves lives because it significantly reduces burn injury, gives the wearer escape time, and increases chances of survival. Providing FR clothing demonstrates management’s commitment to safety and employee well-being. It can improve morale, as well as increase safety.

FR clothing can only provide protection if the wearer follows garment manufacturers’ recommendations for proper use:

  • Wear garments properly – collars closed, sleeves and cuffs down and secured, shirt tails tucked, closures secured, and other manufacturer recommendations.
  • Wear looser-fitting garments that provide adequate mobility.
  • Do not wear non-FR clothing over FR garments. The outermost layer must be FR
  • Wear only FR or non-melting undergarments (e.g. cotton, silk, wool.)
  • Wash garments thoroughly after each wearing to remove contaminants.
  • Do not put on or take off the garment in proximity of flammable gasses, vapors, dusts, or in other potentially explosive environments.
  • In potentially explosive atmospheres, proper grounding procedures must be used.
  • Wear garments with the appropriate arc rating as dictated by an electric arc hazard analysis. Consult employer if unsure.

Proper Care and Prevention of Corns

WPS Corn Care

It’s amazing how a tiny little bump of skin on your foot can cause so much pain and discomfort. If you’ve ever had a corn on your foot, you know how unpleasant it can be. Corns are preventable, but if you do have the unfortunate occurrence of getting one, they are also treatable.

Corns are thick, hardened pieces of dead skin, and they usually occur on the tops and sides of toes. They can make walking very painful. They develop because of rubbing and friction and pressure on the skin. Some corns are caused by an improper walking motion, but most corns are caused by wearing shoes that don’t fit properly. Some corns also occur on the bottom of the feet and some doctors believe this is caused by blocked sweat ducts.

So in order to prevent corns from occurring in the first place, the best course of action is to make sure your shoes or boots fit properly. Make sure you have the proper size and that they are not too wide or too narrow, or fit too tightly. If you can’t wiggle your toes in your shoes or boots, they are too tight. Also, keep in mind that your feet might not be exactly the same size. You might need two different sized shoes or boots. Continue Reading…
