What are the best work shoes for concrete or the best shoes for working on concrete floors that help to reduce pain?
Did you know that 60% of the adult population suffers with pain in their feet, knees, legs, hips, back and/or neck when they're on their feet and many of these people walk or stand all day long on concrete floors?
If you walk or stand on concrete all day long weather at work or play, you're body and joints need protection from the ground forces.
The problem is that shoe options are limited when it comes to reducing force.
And this is why:
Metal coiled springs - are limited in their ability to transfer energy and any amount of force that is reduced, is only reduced within the circumference of the springs and only in the heel because the forefoot remains on the ground. Also, the reduction in force is not significant enough for the shoe manufacturers to publish any test results.
Gel and Foam - Neither have the physical properties to reduce force. They may reduce shock some, but not force. In other words, they don't work to protect the body and joints for those suffering in serious pain.
Now don't get me wrong, shoes made with metal coiled springs and gel and foam materials are just fine for people that need a bit of shock absorption,
What are the Force Reducer shoes?
The Force Reducers are the world's only shoes with a carbon fiber, heel-to-toe suspension system that suspends the entire foot off of the ground and reduces impact force to the joints and body by 55%.
My name is Timothy Chaffin and I'm a Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist by trade. I make custom prosthetic limbs and orthopedic braces and I work specifically with carbon fiber because it’s cutting-edge and provides for a naturally controlled motion.
About 8 years ago I started having debilitating pain in my hips, feet and back because I stand on concrete all day long. I’ve tried all the shoes that claim to be the best shoes for standing on concrete, but no matter what I tried, my pain never got better and often times certain shoes made my pain worse!
So, I decided to make a shoe suspension system that works with the same concept in mind as the suspension system in your car - to reduce the impact forces so your body and joints don't have to take it.
After 8 years of trial and error, I came up with the Force Reducer Technology. A carbon fiber, elliptical leaf spring suspension system for footwear.
I don't want to toot my own horn here, but thankfully I no longer deal with pain while on my feet all day on the concrete and to top the whole thing off, my corns and callouses disappeared.
I would say without a doubt these are the best work shoes for concrete. In fact, I won't wear any other shoe now, because the Force Reducers allow me to walk and stand all day long on the concrete in a pain free state.
Some people like to wear the Force Reducers because they make them feel so light and airy on their feet, but in general, the Force Reducers are for those that have tried everything and are still suffering with pain. For those that have reached their end and are just tired of living with pain like I was.
These are the best shoes for working on concrete floors because they reduce the impact force over 50%, which is shown to be below the level of tissue overload. No tissue overload means no pain.
