WACO, Texas (PRWEB) September 27, 2016 -- A nurse will walk an average of four to five miles during a 12-hour shift. A waiter will typically take 23,000 steps a day. These are just two examples of careers that demand comfortable and supportive shoes, and now those who spend all day on their feet can turn to a breakthrough line of professional footwear.
Spenco has introduced its new Professional Collection, attractive footwear ideal for people whose professions require long hours of standing or walking.
The new shoes and slides for men and women come with a nearly 50-year history of proven technology behind them. Built on Spenco’s trusted Total Support® Contour and orthotic-grade arch support, the professional-grade footwear offers additional benefits:
• Stain-resistant polyurethane leather
• Breathable spacer mesh linings
• A comfort-padded collar
• Slip-resistant rubber outsoles
Medical professionals in particular may already be familiar with Spenco’s advanced 2nd Skin® first aid products, including burn pads, dressing kits and Silicore® bed pads. But the company’s roots are in podiatry, too.
“Many working professionals provide an unmatched level of comfort and support to their patients or customers, and we believe their feet deserve that same level of care,” said Jeff Antonioli, vice president of sales and marketing.
The Florence & Pierce slide for women and the Quincy slip-on for men are available in black, bone and white. The names are inspired by real and fictitious medical professionals – the nurse Florence Nightingale, Dr. Hawkeye Pierce from “M*A*S*H,” and the medical examiner in the television series “Quincy, M.E.”
“This line may have been conceived for medical professionals like doctors, nurses, physical therapists and chiropractors, but security guards, hospitality staff and many others have just as much to gain from taking care of their feet,” Antonioli said.
The Professional Collection was designed with uniform requirements in mind. Footwear is available in whole sizes and retails for $104.99 – $109.99. The collection can be found in many shoe stores and on the Spenco website.
