Is Your Workwear Ready For The Cold?

Winterize your Workwear

So you went out and bought a great pair of work boots this year. They’ve been reliable all year long, getting you through more mud and rain than you’ve ever seen in your life. Once the temperatures drop, your work footwear could use a boost. Just as you need to dig out the winter box and start wearing a hat and gloves, your work shoes need some extra attention, too. They have to face snow, sleet, and even salt in the upcoming months. Sure, they’ll keep you protected like they always have, but taking the time to ensure their exteriors are maintained with proper conditioning and waxing can be the difference between soggy and dry socks.

Shanks: Everything You Need To Know

WPS Shank Blog

Just take a glance at your work boots, and you’ll probably immediately notice their tough leather exteriors and durable rubber soles. When it comes to work shoes, you need both sturdiness and comfort. Some of that comes from what you can’t see – hidden within the men’s and women’s footwear. What is it that gives your work shoes their structure?

Shanks are what keep your work boots in shape, as they stiffen the outsoles to give you a stable platform. They’re tucked into the interiors, located above the outer soles at the waist (or center part) of your work shoes. These trusty metal or non-metal shanks are situated right between your heels and the ball areas of your feet. Don’t let the stiffness fool you – they’re shaped to contour your feet for comfort and reinforcement. If you’re wearing your work footwear right now, these flat, rigid pieces of material are just below your arches. Continue Reading…

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…
