A leading healthcare uniform company is going high style through a new partnership with one of the nation’s leading workplace shoe manufacturers. Barco Uniforms is pairing up with Skechers for a line of workplace uniforms focused on comfort.
The collection includes machine-washable pants, tops and warm-up jackets for men and women in 11 colors. Two of the new colors—cherry pie and sunny lime—are colors known to engage residents with dementia. The clothing is made from eco-friendly, stretchable fabrics that wick moisture and resist soiling.
While the partnership is the first between the two California companies, it isn’t the first foray into the healthcare market for Skechers, which recently released a line of slip-resistant footwear designed specifically for the healthcare industry.
"This modern apparel collection that we’ve developed with Barco Uniforms complements our ongoing mission to offer stylish, comfortable and technically innovative product for the healthcare industry," said Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS, in a press release. "Doctors, nurses and medical professionals have come to know and love Skechers for our workplace footwear, and we expect to leverage that familiarity in the apparel arena."
