ESD SHOES AND SANDALS
Electrostatic discharge is important in situations involving danger of explosion (explosives, chemicals, gases, dust explosion), or if you work with sensitive electronics (microchips, hard drives, etc.). When you move, friction always causes an electrostatic charge in your body. Shoes and clothing that are not conductive (enough) can increase this charge.
Anti-static shoes have an electrical resistance between 0.1 and 1000 MegaOhm (MΩ), measured according to EN 20344: 2011 5 10. This value is a compromise between good protection from electrical shocks and sufficient dissipative capacity.
