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…

When you’re out on the job, your personal safety starts from the ground up. And footwear safety is vitally important: one wrong step can lead to injury, meaning lost time and an uncertain future. So finding the right protective footwear that’s not only comfortable, but also protects your well-being, is key to starting out your work day on the right foot.

You already know you need the right tool for the right job – and the same is true for your work boots. So when you’re working in a specific trade – in this case, working with and around electricity – extra special precautions need to be taken.

Crocs @ Work Now at WorkingPerson.com

Crocs @ Work @ WorkingPersonOriginally developed as a spa shoe, it’s no surprise that Crocs have built their reputation on out-and-out comfort. Founded in 2002, they took their first design (‘The Beach’) to a Florida boat show and sold out all 200 shoes in a matter of hours. But it wasn’t until 2006 that they really caught the public’s imagination.

Since then the Crocs brand has gone from strength to strength, and divided public opinion equally, every comfortable step of the way. So while the fashionista’s turned their noses up, the public kept on buying. Partly because they were so easy to wear, but also being seen regularly on the feet of famous faces like Michelle Obama did the brand no harm either.

But far from ever courting the affections of the rich and famous, at the core of Crocs’ more recent marketing has Continue Reading…
