safeTstep® is both a brand of shoe and a business-to-business team at Payless
- If you walk into any of our North American Payless stores, you can’t miss the bright orange boxes sitting on the shelves.
- Since the safeTstep brand was launched in 2002 with 8 styles, it has now grown to offer more than 50 styles to tackle the various conditions in diverse, tough work environments.
- safeTstep’s patented slip-resistant tread is the hallmark feature of the shoe created as a specific answer to the growing need for individuals searching for affordable and functional work shoes.
A Team of People:
- safeTstep quickly evolved from being just a great work shoe for consumers, into a department of people inside of Payless partnering with business of all sizes to proactively create solutions to mitigate workers’ compensation claims due to slips, trips and falls.
- Our friendly team shares office space with “the rest of Payless” in the Topeka, KS headquarters.
- That means we get to enjoy the benefits of low-cost sourcing, global distribution, and fashion-conscious talent.
- Since we’re part of Payless, we benefit from a full team behind the shoe – a product team, a buying & planning team, and those who deliver final product to the stores and online!
- Given that 80% of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a Payless store, along with the capabilities of purchasing online, it’s very easy to get your crew into the right work shoes on day one!
