How do you keep a standard foot strap from riding up on the top of your foot when wearing dress shoes ?

The stretchy part rides up past your shoe laces and ends up contacting the top of your foot which becomes uncomfortable quickly.....

I know there are different types of foot straps etc, but I was wondering if there's and kind of trick with the standard ones.

Stop wearing dress shoes on the factory floor? What are you a salesman? :D :D :D

If your budget allows, there are dress shoes made that are ESD safe. This would preclude the need for the straps, and the hassle of having to keep track of wearing them.

Leather is not very insulative. AFAIK a lot of good quality dress shoes are naturally ESD safe. (or maybe test too low.)

Check the dress shoes with a tester.

And I'm guessing that stapling the straps is out of the question.
