Sixton Peak, some rules for the purchase and maintenance of shoe
Feet are an extremely delicate anatomical part, forced to support the body and to endure a considerable workload every day. Climbing stairs, making sudden movements on slippery surfaces, carrying weights, standing for long periods of time, are all activities that require physical effort and the use of an appropriate shoe that allows you to perform any movement safely, with minimum effort and maintaining a balanced posture. Before and after the purchase of the accident-prevention footwear as an Individual Protection Device (PPE), attention must be paid to many “responsible” details of the health and safety of the foot.
THE IDEAL FIT OF FOOTWEAR
HOW TO IDENTIFY FORM AND SIZE IN A CORRECT WAY
“The human foot is a work of art and an engineering masterpiece”! If what Michelangelo says is true, then there should also be a perfect shoe size for each of us. In reality none of us has both feet of the same size, shape or proportions. The first rule to follow when you want to buy a pair of safety shoes specific to a work environment, is to identify those more suited to the size and shape of your foot, perhaps with the help of Sixton Peak Feetview, a simple and practical tool which helps to quickly determine if the subject has a plantar arch of normal, low or high height.
In the Sixton Peak collection there are several lines that are distinguished to respect the criterion of comfort to the maximum and are classified according to work, fit and shape.
It is known that the best time to choose a pair of shoes is at the end of the day, when the feet are more tired, to avoid the risk of finding themselves with shoes that are difficult to wear.
Always try the shoes carefully before purchase and on both feet, also taking a few steps to test their comfort.
THE CORRECT MAINTENANCE OF SIXTON PEAK SHOES
Starting with the “right” shoe that is suitable for the size and shape of your foot is not everything! Attention must also be paid to adequate and precise maintenance, with regular and methodical cleaning and proper washing, to ensure a good level of safety, hygiene and health of the foot. For optimal performance, we recommend having two pairs of shoes available, to alternate them, allowing sufficient ventilation time after a day’s work. Here are some practical suggestions from Sixton Peak® to prolong the life of the shoe.
