Dancing shoes with a difference
Statistics show that there are over 2,000 toe injuries every year in Canada. Safetytoes International Inc., manufacturer of the 'Slipp-R', has produced a video of Irish musicians and dancers wearing its steel toe overshoes. The video was filmed in Toronto using professional Celtic musicians and dancers from the Brogue Celtic Music and Dance Company. Two of the dancers are wearing flat-soled runners while the third dancer is wearing traditional Irish dance shoes with a full heel. The Slipp-R is a purpose-designed safety overshoe with an all-flat sole. Unlike other overshoe styles with a moulded heel, the Slipp-R has no excess material underfoot when worn with flat-soled outer shoes. The Slipp-R safetytoe overshoe costs many times less than regular safety footwear. It provides for the same legal toe protection as any 'CSA Approved' safety shoe.
