Working in a restaurant kitchen can be extremely hazardous and physically grueling. You spend most of the day on your feet and in addition to working around sharp knives and dangerously hot surfaces, you can take a nasty fall on a slick floor. Without the proper work shoes, you run the risk of going home at the end of the night with painfully sore feet, a sore bum, or much, much worse. Comfort and protect your feet and the rest of your body with a pair of Keen Men’s 1006981 PTC Dress Oxford Water-Resistant Non-Slip Restaurant Work Shoes.
In addition to having excellent cooking skills, as a successful chef you need to look great, too. Depending on what restaurant you work in, sometimes you’ll be making an appearance in the dining room to meet customers. Made of water- and stain-resistant leather uppers, these black shoes help you look neat and professional. With the easy-to-wipe leather, you can quickly wipe away any splashes of food and liquid that land on your Keen shoes. Inside, plush KEEN.CUSH footbeds made from PU and memory foam cradle your feet in all-day comfort. KEEN.CUSH contours to your feet and adjusts to give you the cushioning you need throughout your day. Compression molded EVA midsoles help provide extra support for your hardworking feet.
Avoid the dreaded slips and falls (that many chefs experience) with the KEEN.Grip rubber outsoles on these slip-resistant shoes. These hardworking outsoles meet or exceed ASTM F1677-96 Mark II non-slip testing standards. The traction is so great on these dress shoes, it’s like they have hundreds of tiny suction cups on the bottom that grip the ground. They’re oil-resistant, too, preventing premature breakdown of the rubber.
Moving back and forth to different prepping stations can make you work up quite a sweat. While the rest of your body might be soaking wet, somehow your feet are so much drier when they're inside these men's shoes. The secret is the moisture-wicking lining that helps to draw out uncomfortable wetness to keep the inside of your water-resistant shoes more comfortable.
Whether you prefer your Keen footwear to have a snug or looser fit, you’ll like the lace-up design. Unlike slip-on shoes, laces allow you to adjust the tightness of your non-slip shoes, helping you stay firmly on your feet.
In addition to kitchen staff, these water- and stain-resistant shoes are also great for hospital work, grocery work, and really any job that requires you to be on your feet for extended periods of time.
With so many hazards in the kitchen you need a pair of slip-resistant shoes that help keep you on your toes - literally. Keep your feet and your entire body safer with a pair of Keen Men’s PTC Dress 1006981 Water-Resistant Non-Slip Restaurant Oxford Shoes.

Have worn these for last 3yrs...
By: 35 yrs Restaurant Mgr
As a restaurant mgr that has been working on hard floors for over 35 yrs, my review on this shoe is described as follows: wonderful! I will admit that they don't last more than 9 months at a time, but the result of my feet not hurting by the end of the day is worth it.
I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, after spending too much money and not much results...I started wearing this shoe with a name brand insert from REI & haven't had anymore problems. I keep a supply so I always have a spare pair. Try them, you'll be glad you did.
