Swedish Nurses Have Helped Develop Your Next Shoes

by Andy on May 13, 2013

Nurses in a Swedish hospital a while back discovered what many of us know already — crocs™ are extremely comfortable to wear at work. Soon more and more were wearing them, but little did they know the rubberized soles could lead to a build-up of static.  When critical medical equipment suddenly failed 3 separate times, hospital administrators went looking for a reason.  They eventually traced the problem to the shoes and banned them from the facility.

The good news in all of this is it spurred crocs to develop the new ESD-safe version now stocked and available through All-Spec.  Now everyone in a cleanroom or static sensitive environment can enjoy all-day, on-the-job comfort.   Designed with a wide base, anatomically correct heel and medical arch support, you get a secure, stable fit.  The foam-based material absorbs shocks to your feet, knees, hips and lower back, significantly reducing fatigue.


  • Surface resistivity: 1×105 – 1×108
  • Cleanroom class 10,000 (ISO 4)
  • Material: Proprietary foam-based material
  • Colors: White or black
  • Men’s sizes: 3-13
  • Women’s sizes: 5-12


You’ll find the complete line of ESD-safe crocs in your choice of black or white at www.All-Spec.com.  Have any questions or comments?  Leave a message below or call Customer Service at (800) 537-0351.
