Germ Free – Kizik

Fighting COVID-19 With Hands-Free Footwear

With a new study published by the Centers for Disease Control concluding that COVID-19 may travel on shoes and that the footwear of medical staff in particular could be carriers, we've decided to donate 1,000 pairs of emergency, hands-free shoes to doctors and nurses in support of the fight against COVID-19.

What is hands-free footwear?

Shoes are a part of everyday life. They reflect on our personal style and take us to all the places we want to go. At Kizik we believe that footwear can be better. We create the best hands-free shoes to make life more convenient and germ free..

Hands-free is germ free.

Footwear is dirty. The rest of your life doesn't have to be.

Why hands free?

Function meets fashion

Kizik is on a mission to bring fashion and convenience to everyone that has a desire to look and feel their best. We believe that fashion, comfort, and convenience shouldn’t be mutually exclusive.

Everyone deserves convenience

We make shoes that are easy-on and on-trend. With Kizik shoes there’s no need for hands, horns, or help. Anyone with feet can get in and out of our shoes quickly—and look good doing it.

Innovation in every step

Shoe companies don’t innovate, they simply change materials and colors. Kizik brings an inventor mindset to footwear. We have patented numerous ways to get into your shoes much easier.

How they work.

Easy on easy off

Laces are a thing of the past. Kizik shoes allow you to slide on and stay in your shoes with one simple motion. Our F.A.S.T.® technology releases the back of the shoe to allow easy entry and locks your heel back into place. No bending over or crouching down so you can say goodbye to sore backs and throbbing knees. .

Find your perfect fit

Your foot is unique. Your shoes should be too. Each shoe comes with a micro adjustment feature to allow you to set the correct size once and forget it. Each time you slide on your Kizik shoes it will fit as perfect as a custom tailored suit

Germy Shoes in The Press

In 2016, a study by researchers at the University of Arizona set the germophobic world on fire with a report that said the average shoe sole is covered with 421,000 bacteria and that 90 percent of those bacteria transfer directly to a clean tile floor on first contact. A 2017 study on shoe bacteria by the University of Houston showed that more than 26 percent of shoes examined test positive for C. diff, a bacteria that causes a potentially deadly super diarrhea. That’s more than triple the amount typically found in kitchens and bathrooms.

From Feb. 19 through March 2, swab samples were collected from the floors, computer mice, trash cans, sickbed handrails, patient masks, personal protective equipment, and air outlets. The positivity rate was relatively high for floor swab samples “perhaps because of gravity and air flow causing most virus droplets to float to the ground. In addition, as medical staff walk around the ward, the virus can be tracked all over the floor, as indicated by the 100% rate of positivity from the floor in the pharmacy, where there were no patients," the study said.

Research published in the federal agency’s Emerging Infectious Diseases journal shows the contagion spreading much farther than previous official suggestions — and also getting spread on people’s shoes. “The aerosol distribution characteristics … indicate that the transmission distance of [COVID-19] might be 4 m,” the report says, translating as more than 13 feet.
