We can think of many ways to present the benefits of wearing men's shoe covers over the tops of your dress shoes. With every explanation, we try to tie into a related example that drives home the point. For example, consider the idea of contamination. Some professionals wear specialized shoe covers on the job to prevent contamination.
In many cases, workers do not want to contaminate the surrounding environment. In other cases, they do not want to contaminate their own shoes. Whether you call our products men's galoshes or shoe covers, they are intended to prevent contamination of your shoes and socks.
For the record, the Cambridge dictionary defines contamination as, "the process of making something dirty or poisonous, or the state of containing unwanted or dangerous substances." We understand contamination mostly as dirt, pollution, etc.
Shoe Covers for Forensic Experts
A great example of avoiding contamination by wearing shoe covers is observed when forensic experts examine a crime scene. They sometimes wear disposable cloth shoe covers on scene, especially when they are attempting to collect DNA evidence. The shoe covers are utilized to prevent them from contaminating potential DNA evidence with their shoes.
We could carry this example to its logical conclusion by talking about the hair nets, body suits, face masks, and rubber gloves technicians wear during forensic investigations. But the point should be simple enough to understand: the protective gear worn by the technicians is to prevent them from contaminating their environment. Our men's shoe covers are designed to do just the opposite.
Protect You from the Environment
Shoe covers worn over your dress shoes are designed to protect you from the environment. You know as well as anybody how many contaminants are on the streets and sidewalks. The last thing you want is for those contaminants to get on your shoes.
Here are just some of the things our shoe covers are intended to keep away from your shoes:
- Rainwater – Rain may be clean and pure out in the middle of a forest, but not so much in the city. Rainwater picks up contaminants from the air as it falls. When it bounces on the sidewalk or street, it collects contaminants from the ground. That rainwater hoping to soak your shoes carries all sorts of dirt and grime.
- Snow – Snow is not any better during the winter months. It picks up all sorts of contaminants, especially from plows and daily traffic. There is a reason snow turns black at the side of the road. You do not want all the garbage in that black snow on your dress shoes.
- Road Salt – Perhaps the worst contaminant of all, at least where your dress shoes are concerned, is road salt. Salt does a particularly good job keeping the roads free of snow and ice. But the same properties that make it ideal for that purpose also make road salt bad for your shoes.
The thing to remember is that the many contaminants your shoes can pick up on the street are not just aesthetically unappealing. Sure, they make your shoes look dirty and unkempt. But those contaminants also affect the shoe material as well. They damage the material, thereby shortening the life of your shoes.
Many different professionals where shoe covers to prevent contamination. Some shoe covers prevent wearers from contaminating the environment in which they find themselves at the time. Our shoe covers prevent the environment from contaminating your shoes. If you do not have at least one pair, it is time for you to invest in state-of-the-art men's shoe covers from GC Tech.
