There are plenty of industries where it makes perfect sense to buy footwear wholesale, from the building site to the health spa. Sometimes the footwear is for your own team. Other times it is for customers or visitors. And you might choose to give them away as a complimentary gesture, sell them at not-for-profit prices, or even earn a little extra revenue through them.
The wholesale commercial footwear model suits all these scenarios. So where would you turn to find great deals on such items? Well, Screen Textiles has a great collection of essential footwear for a large range of commercial uses. Let’s have a look at what we have got, and how it can help you delight your clients and protect your employees.
First up, there are the hardy boots and shoes that are a requirement to entry for most building sites and many factories, warehouses and other such locations. You might need boots with steel toecaps, for example, or oil and slip resistance for when your employees and visitors are working exposed to the elements or in amongst machinery. That’s when industrial quality footwear like our chukka boots or comfort grip slip-on shoes are an absolute must. They will offer all the protection and safety features you could ever want from a shoe that will be treading the hazardous areas where heavy work is going on.
They give you peace of mind that you’re helping maintain health and safety for all your valued personnel on site, while also ensuring you stay on the right side of the law and keep those all-important insurance premiums lower. Buying a range of sizes in wholesale is perfect for industries where you have a relatively high staff turnover and are expected to supply protective footwear to staff – keep a selection in your store room, and whether you’re onboarding agency staff or taking on new employees, you’ll always have something in their size so they can get their work and training under way the day they start.
Another field of work is where staff spend a lot of time outdoors in all elements, but need good quality footwear to protect them from slips and twists, as well as keeping their feet snug and warm. We’re thinking of jobs like surveying, maintenance, deliveries, agriculture, outdoor pursuits and fitness training, where safety and comfort are important but the need for toe protection and chemical resistance would probably be surplus to requirement, and could cause excessive fatigue if employees are trekking for several hours a day.
We think in situations like this, you can’t do better than choose a heavy duty hiking boot such as the Warrior S3, a hiking boot that comes with a host of comfort features but is rugged enough to see any worker through the toughest of days in the rain, mud and snow. For a cool stylish makeover, you might prefer the Warrior Nubuck Hiker Boot, a great quality alternative to some of the other mainstream work boots that have transitioned to high street fashion (and have adopted high fashion prices along the way). Ours are just as functional and rugged but at a fraction of the price – and in our opinion, they look every bit as good, too.
Our final range of footwear is definitely not for the great outdoors, and is all about pampering, comfort and an excellent experience for your customers. If you run a spa, health retreat, hotel, gym or other such wellness establishment, wouldn’t it be nice to offer complimentary Terry slippers or waffle slippers to your guests and customers? They are absolutely perfect for anyone stepping out of the shower, wandering around a health resort or walking from facial to massage in complete comfort.
The price you’ll pay is a drop in the ocean, too. For just a couple of pounds per pair when you buy in bulk, you can create an impression that more than pays for itself in customer satisfaction and repeat visits. Of course, you can charge for them or even make a profit, but as a value added feature of your business and its mindset, they are invaluable as a free gift. Although they tend to be in white, we do stock slider-style towelling slippers in blue, too.
So whether you’re looking for high quality protective footwear, boots to tackle any terrain, or just something to put a smile on your customers’ faces, you can find it all at Screen Textiles. When you see the prices and the super-swift delivery options, as well as the fact that you can get mixed size orders and treat them as a single wholesale footwear order, it will put a smile on your face too.
