Did you know that Skechers offers an entire collection of utility and safety footwear designed to protect on the job?  In fact, Skechers has the #1 WORK brand in the United States. We designed the Skechers WORK collection for men and women working in kitchens, hospitals, warehouses, janitorial, construction and more. Every style includes features that protect against one or more dangers including slippery surfaces, impact, water and electrical hazards—each independently tested and certified to rigorous industry standards.

Our slip-resistant outsoles follow the ASTM F1677-2005 Mark II testing standard on clean Red Quarry tile and meet or exceed a result of 0.40 under wet or oily conditions. Styles that offer Electrical Hazard protection meet ASTM F2413-20011 EH requirements and are constructed to resist disruptive discharge to the ground under 18 kV 60Hz AC for one minute with no current flow in excess of one milliampere under dry conditions. Electro-static Dissipative styles are designed to reduce the accumulation of excess static electricity by conducting body charge to the ground following the ASTM F2892 standard.

Skechers WORK Safety Toe footwear offers a variety of impact protection options in the toe cap all meeting or exceeding the ASTM F2413-2011, I/75 C/75 standards for impact and compression.  Steel Safety Toe styles feature a more traditional hard steel protective cap over the toe area.  Lightweight Safety Toe styles feature a toe cap protected by an alloy material created with ultra-lightweight, durable and high-grade materials for superior strength and comfort. Lastly Composite Safety Toe series footwear delivers the same level of protection and comfort using a non-metallic composite material. Select styles also include Waterproof protection designed to keep feet dry for at least eight hours in water or wet conditions tested with the SATRA TM77 method utilizing membrane and seam-sealed construction.

And best of all many styles in the collection are special versions of trendy Skechers profiles designed with a Relaxed Fit to give extra space in the toe area plus a soft Skechers Memory Foam insole for enhanced comfort when you must be on your feet all day. These shoes and boots look great, feel amazing, and help keep you safe throughout your shift.

Take a look at a few styles from the collection above—all three protect against slippery surfaces and electrical dangers. For women who want a traditional low profile sneaker the Relaxed Fit: Eldred SR on the left is a perfect option. Or for those who prefer an easy-on, easy-off design there’s the Relaxed Fit: Cozard SR seen center. And for men, the Relaxed Fit: Flex Advantage SR to the right is a popular traditional sneaker that that gets the job done. Or browse the entire collection at to see more options including rugged safety toe boots.

    I’m in the market for new safety/steel/composite toe shoes, and was wondering which Shoe is best for standing on concrete all day. The sketchers I have right now are nice and lightweight, alloy tip ones, but my feet ache after I take them off at night. I find it hard to walk after work, my heels are in lots of pain. So any suggestion on a safety toe shoe that’s lightweight and meant to be on concrete all day would be appreciated.

    I’m very disappointed that Skechers has decided to no longer sell Skechers for Work Shape Ups Exeter Men Work Shoe, This work shoe was a great knee saver for a large frame guy who stands 10 to 14 hours per day in the kitchen. I’m sure that i’m not the only person that feels this way.

      Hi Orlando! We are looking into bringing them back, and your comment will be used for that purpose as we will bring it to upper management :). However, in the meantime- of the currently available men’s Work shoes I recommend the Burst SR for lots of standing and walking – it’s got very good cushioning and support! Have a great day!

    I just took delivery of my Sketchers Surren, Steel toe, waterproof, relaxed fit work boots. Just like my other Sketchers shoes they are very comfortable. However, they seem too stiff around the ankle. I’m hoping once they are broken in this problem will lessen. I did wear them around the house before going outdoors with the hope of breaking them in. I work in a MI lumber yard & they’ve already been exposed to all the cold weather elements.It’s been 2 weeks but they still seem a little stiff around the ankle.
