The ICE PRO Outsole

The success of our slip-resistant outsoles lies in our leading-edge anti-slip technology. We continue to innovate by listening to the millions of our loyal customers who are protected by our top-quality safety footwear on a daily basis.


Our clog-resistant outsoles are engineered to provide strong surface contact, while featuring wide-spaced traction lugs that minimize clogging. This makes your outsole easier to clean and prevents the tracking of contaminants, without sacrificing your slip resistance.


We're serious about safety. We offer a wide selection of composite toe, aluminum toe, steel toe and nano composite safety toe work shoes. All Shoes For Crews safety toe footwear meets or exceeds Industry standards, so you can rely on them for on-the-job protection.


Because bulky, squared-off lugs at the front of a shoe can cause a tripping hazard, we created TripGuard. The slight curve and tighter lug pattern of the TripGuard design promotes smoother transitions between floor surfaces, from smooth to slippery to carpet to tile. Available only from Shoes For Crews.


Who wants to work in wet shoes? No one. All our shoes are designed to be water-resistant. From external coatings to internal barriers, Shoes For Crews provides various degrees of water-resistant protection to fit your job needs.


Spills happen, and hot scalding liquids can burn. That's why we use SpillGuard, a protective coating internal barrier that reduces the risk of injury.


We believe comfort is just as important as safety in a work shoe. We know you work hard, so we are constantly developing innovative solutions to improve the comfort of your shoes.
