I take it you have not used them Martin?

They are a form of decontamination.

However 'footwear decontamination' also takes place in other places .. 
for example some clean rooms, chemical laboratories.

For that reason I would add a sub tag say footwear=hiking to state that 
it is intended for hikers shoes/boots.
There could also be sub tags for the decontamination, say pathogens, 
seeds, dirt etc. Depending on how detailed you want to be.

I'd certainly not use a tag that could in any way be used for shoe 
polishing ... not on. If you want to tag that use some other tag.
