Even if you’re not making a fashion statement with your clothes, people might think you are. That’s just the world we live in nowadays – everything has a subtext and everyone’s got an opinion about it. When you lace up your safety shoes before heading to work, do you ever wonder kind of statement you’re making? What does that cute guy or girl sitting across from you on the train think of your kicks?

Here are what your shoes could be communicating to others:

The Marathon
SFC’s Marathon shoe is at once athletic and trendy. It’s a great fit for foodservice professionals, nurses and school workers. When you put it on, it tells the world that you’re about to get to work and you won’t be taking a break anytime soon. With extreme cushioning, it’s comfortable and lightweight, so you can wear it through the morning and be ready to take over the evening shift as well. The Marathon shoe says, “Yeah, I’ve been working since 5 a.m., but I’m still going for an evening stroll with my girl when I get home.”

Even if the elements don’t cooperate with your trip, the Verona’s slip-resistant sole will help stop you from falling on the slippery paving stones.
