Are you looking for a comfortable and hygienic sanitary shoe as an alternative to the classic nursing clogs?
Reposa Smart – the ultra-lightweight shoe in light rubber – is the perfect solution for those looking for the same feeling of stability and snug fit as closed walking shoes, without sacrificing the level of protection and hygiene that only a professional product can guarantee.
When it comes to safety and comfort in the workplace, especially in the health sector, Reposa has always been in the vanguard, as demonstrated by the brand new and gritty Smart/Power eco-friendly line, ultra-lightweight, non-slip and ESD shoes and clogs.
But what are the main features that distinguish the ultralight shoes?
- Complete closure and adherence around the foot, for optimal protection at 360°;
- Ventilation thanks to the side holes that allow the foot to breathe during long shifts;
- Easy to wash, even in the washing machine;
- Resistance, given by the material and the shape of the liner which guarantees excellent durability despite wear and tear.
What makes the two Reposa models the most appropriate choice?
Reposa Smart and Reposa Power are PPE compliant with European standard EN ISO 20347;
It has an ESD certification, an additional requirement against the risk of electric shock to operators and/or machinery being used;
It is tested for maximum slip resistance;
It is ultra-comfortable and good for the wearer! It supports the posture and ensure its correctness thanks to the slightly anatomical sole and the full heel, which absorbs shocks generating a spring shock absorbing effect.
It also provides extra protection with regard to the essential requirements: a full heel against possible piercing objects and closed heel.
Who are closed-toe sanitary shoes designed for?
Thanks to their shape, which completely encircles the foot and prevents it from falling out, closed sanitary shoes are suitable PPE for various types of work.
Their primary use is in the healthcare sector, in particular for people working in wards, hospital aisle, nurses and other medical and socio-medical staff in hospices and clinics of various kinds.
They are also suitable for cleaning and other Ho.Re.Ca. sectors.
Ultralight closed shoe vs closed shoe in leather or microfiber
The use of closed footwear as an alternative to clogs is certainly not an absolute novelty in the world of PPE: lines of lace-up shoes or moccasins in leather/microfiber are already widespread and very successful in the working environment.
What also pushed Reposa to create a closed sanitary shoe in EVA is the possibility to offer operators a product that combines the needs of safety with those of lightness, comfort and design, fulfilling the aim of reducing the environmental impact.
How? Microfiber shoes usually have a polyurethane sole, which tends to yellow over time and after being subjected to UV rays, not to mention that, if not moulded, it can come off irreparably.
But what we never tire of highlighting is the extraordinary lightness of the material which resists abrasion and deformation more than cross-linked "rubbery" EVA, and it is 100% recyclable, in line with the global trend of eco-sustainability.
These are the advantages that can be appreciated in any job that requires standing or walking for many hours a day:
- Lightness , which obviously allows to feel less fatigue at the end of the day;
- A greater breathability, given by the presence of side holes that allow the constant passage of air inside the footwear;
- Water repellence, an advantage in every working environment;
- The practicality and ease of disinfection
- The innovative and colourful design
