  • temporarily sponges away water as well as gripping the floor;

  • finally, lasts for years because
    • they're easy to clean so they don't cake up, and

Grippers for Strippers patented woven pad material

Competing stripping overshoes use the same vinyl loop material used for stripping pads. They do tend to cake up, making them ineffective quickly.

The Bottom Pads can't come loose or come off while you're stripping floors. Grippers for Strippers long-lasting Bottom Pads make replacement pads unnecessary.

PVC Is the Ideal Material for Stripping Overshoes

PVC is extremely durable, chemical-resistant, and waterproof . Therefore, your shoes and feet are completely protected. Protecting your crew's shoes and feet significantly helps to improve morale. Grippers for Strippers protect both their shoes and their feet from exposure to the harsh chemicals used to strip floors.
Note: Grippers for Strippers-ECON are a budget minded alternative. Both use the same effective slip-resistant material in the gripping pads. Both have an overshoe design that fully protects your shoes. The primary difference is that Grippers for Strippers-ECON uses a lower cost latex compound for the uppers that is less durable and less chemical resistant. Winter Walking estimates that the service life for regular Grippers for Strippers to be 3 to 4 years whereby the service life for Grippers for Strippers-ECON is 1 to 2 years. Latex is far more difficult to slide on your footwear.

Slippery Surfaces on Which Grippers for Strippers Are Effective

Versatile traction is critical because other slippery conditions often exist in the same area where floors are being stripped, mopped, or waxed.

Keep Feet Healthier Because Grippers for Strippers Don't Buckle

Lesser quality overshoes kink outward at the midpoint when your shoe flexes as you take a step. The kink creates a space between your shoe and the overshoe where water can enter. Instead of protecting your shoes and feet, the overshoe becomes a soaking tank for water and chemicals.

5.00 ...they work very well.
General Comments: Purchased for Professional Use. Project team said they work very well.
Kimberly R. Gardnerville, NV 01/22/20
5.00 The stripper shoes are great...
General Comments: I purchased a pair of shoes for stripping floor wax for my job. Shoes to put over my shoes. The wax continued to build up on my shoes, and to tare down my shoes in a very short time. With the stripper shoes to cover my shoes, I don't have to buy new shoes so often. The stripper shoes are great, I just rinse off the bottom of the shoes and there ready. The stripper shoes help a lot from falling on the floor. I recommend the Grippers.
