Health and Wellness

Health and wellness aren’t just about eating well and regularly visiting your doctor (but please do both of those things, too!). They also involve wearing the proper workwear and footwear, and finding what’s best for you isn’t always easy. That’s why we’re here to help you make informed decisions. Protecting yourself on the job site is important, and we want you to stay safe and healthy. Check out our posts about preventing injuries and keeping yourself out of harm’s way.

It's been a long day. You sit down and slowly take off your old work boots, and you dread what's next - peeling off those nice, wet socks. When your work footwear can't handle the rain, and it gets soaked all the way through, your feet take the hit as well. There are better options for you. Waterproof footwear is designed specifically to keep your feet and socks dry. It's as simple as that. You might think this only includes rain boots, and perhaps you're already imagining yourself jumping through puddles with a brightly-colored pair of them.

Perhaps you've heard of swamp ass. It's just about as unpleasant as it sounds, and coming down with a case of it can really ruin your day. Those tough hours at work can make you perspire, but that doesn't mean your work pants have to create an unpleasant environment for your behind. If moisture builds up, chaffing can occur. And we're pretty sure nobody wants to sweat until their skin is chafed.
