About Us

Welcome to our website!

SoleMate was founded by two very talented people in 2003 who identified the need to provide a better solution for reducing slips and falls in the workplace as well as to improve the personal comfort of hospitality, health care, and service industry workers who work for long hours on their feet -usually behind the scenes.

With backgrounds in ergonomics, work based rehabilitation, the health care industry and more than three successful companies under their belts there was no shortage of skills or expertise. The hardest part was finding a product that would not only make a real difference to reducing slips and falls, but was also backed by reputable research and wouldn’t overstretch our customers budget.

After extensive research there was only one solution….Shoes for Crews® (SFC); manufacturer of the WORLD’S top rated slip resistant footwear for men and women in the workplace. Shoes for Crews® focus is to deliver the ultimate in slip-resistant technology as well as classic and fashion styling, through a complete line of footwear designed to improve the "quality of life" of the working person by combining slip-resistance, comfort, exceptional pricing and durability into all their products.

Since we sold our first pair of SFC footwear in 2003 we haven’t looked back. Industries that have tried the SFC footwear have been totally blown away by the slip resistance and comfort, and as a result we continue to increase our market share especially in the hospitality, roofing and cleaning industries.

SoleMates aim is to provide you with innovative, cost effective products which you will love to use and which your body will love you for! The first rate reputation of our company is exceedingly important to us so we will only represent companies that equally have a great reputation for quality, performance and integrity.

We have expanded our range of products to include the BackFriend back support, Viscolas insoles / orthotic range, The MouseBean, PenAgain and anti vibration gloves.

We offer full technical support which includes visiting your workplace to assist with personal fitting, set up product trials and advise on product selection at no cost. Our technical staff all hold post graduate qualifications.

We all believe implicitly in our SoleMate products, the way that they have been made, and the people who have helped deliver them to you. And despite our continued growth we still know all our customers personally by their first name and can deliver 99% of product the same day as the order is received!

No matter which of our products you decide to try, let us know how you like it and what we can do to make you happier!
