8 Slip Resistant Sneakers For Every Lifestyle

Slip resistant sneakers are footwear essentials for those who are always on the go. They make every step as easy and stable as can be. Having functional, slip resistant sneakers doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style though. We’ll walk you through the benefits of slip resistant sneakers, why you need them, and how they can help you navigate the world a little more steadily.



There’s nothing worse than feeling off balance. Slip resistant sneakers are designed to have more grip than regular sneakers and help you feel more stable.

Depending on the slip resistant sneakers you opt for, each may have slightly different slip-resistance technology. It all comes down to the sole of the individual slip resistant sneaker. At Giesswein, we use  EVA soles. Made from plastic, EVA soles are lighter and more durable than other soles, meaning your shoes can last much longer. Our  men’s sneakers and  women’s sneakers that feature EVA soles all benefit from these qualities. EVA soles are an alternative to classic rubber soles.  Each sole has particular grooves and shapes that give it its unique anti-slip properties.

Some anti-slip soles are designed for tough terrain. This kind of shoe will handle rocky terrain, wet weather, and even snow easily.  Everyday sneakers with anti-slip soles may be designed to offer optimal stability and slip-free grip on everyday surfaces. 


Slip resistant sneakers can reassure you with every step, while you’re doing the essentials like shopping for groceries or picking the kids up from school. Slip resistant sneakers aren’t just reserved for hiking or backpacking across the country.
