Frequently Asked Questions

  2. Are your shoe covers biodegradable? Currently, our shoe covers are 100% recyclable but not biodegradable. We are doing some R&D on biodegradable shoe covers to become a more eco-friendly PPE company. There are challenges in this but we believe that this is better for the world we live in for the long term.

  6. Where are the shoe covers made? We work with a global supply chain of partners throughout the world. Most of our shoe covers are manufactured in China. However, as we have seen with the current COVID-19 pandemic that we must be able to support ourselves here locally in America. We are working very hard to transition to Made in USA very soon. This of course comes with certain challenges and expectations but we believe that this will not only produce jobs in America but also reduce risk of dependency on the fragile global supply chain.
  7. What other testing is done on the shoe covers? We perform tensile strength testing on our shoe covers by using ASTM D5034-09 testing method. This is also known as the "Grab Test". This test basically tells us that are shoe covers are strong and durable which should last you for most normal uses. Learn More
