Yes, we recommend wearing spike shoes when install epoxy on floors. They come in handy when you want to expedite the application of coating and the optional steps of the application of decorative paint chips/fleck or the Non-Slip Aluminum Oxide Broadcast. Applying epoxy with Spiked Shoes on allows you to walk over the entire surface while you squeegee, back roll, and apply the decorative chips/fleck, and aluminum oxide.
Without the use of spiked shoes you’ll have to mix products at a different ratio. To ensure enough work time mixing smaller batches of epoxy is recommended so that you can reach across sections of floor with an extension pole to squeegee, back roll, and etc. smaller areas while standing on concrete substrate and coating one section at a time. Please see the Epoxy Application Instructions for your chosen Epoxy Kit under the resources tab.
