Washable, Waterproof, Slip Resistant
Wearing work appropriate footwear is important in any role, particularly in health care and hospitality industries where waterproof, washable and non-slip styles are king.
Birkenstock Profi Birki
Waterproof and washable footwear has always been a popular choice for work environments like hospitals and kitchens, though COVID-19 has seen workplaces across the board double down on cleaning and hygiene measures to minimise the transfer of fomites and nasty bacteria.
Now, more than ever, footwear that is easily washed down and sanitised after each wear can make life a lot easier (and cleaner).
The Birkenstock Profi Birki is a popular choice for health care and hospitality professionals. The removable PU footbed and PU upper provides the ultimate wash-down solution while still providing the comfort and support that Birkenstock are known for.
If grip trumps waterproofing, and you are happy to go with a leather or Birko-Flor upper rather than PU, Birkenstock styles with Supergrip deliver non-slip soles combined with the classic Birkenstock footbed and leather or Birko-Flor upper. A selection of Birkenstock styles are available with Supergrip, including the Boston, Kay and Tokio.
Birkenstock are the only ones in the work shoe game when it comes to hospitality and health care. BOGS also cater for these industries with their Stewart collection.
The BOGS Stewart is 100% waterproof and washable, created with a 100% Rebound rubber with DuraFresh technology to fight odour, and a BioGrip anti-slip and chemical resistant sole.
