Electrostatic shoes, also known as anti-static shoes, anti-static work shoes, is a kind of work shoes that are used to reduce or eliminate static electricity hazards in the production of dust-free workshops and advanced laboratories in industries such as electronic semiconductor devices, electronic computers, and integrated circuits. Electrostatic shoes can lead the body's static electricity to the earth, eliminating static electricity from the human body and effectively suppressing the dust that the worker walks into the clean room.

Electrostatic shoes generally use loose material PVC or PU foam material to produce soles, which are integrally formed with the upper, and are then reinforced on the line to effectively discharge static electricity.
