Abstract Detailed description of a safety shoe developed jointly by a rubber manufacturer and a research institute. The basic material of the shoe is polyvinyl chloride. The electrical resistance of the shoe is 106Ω, enabling it to earth static electric charges, but sufficiently high to provide protection against exposure to currents at 250V.
