KEEN Utility 1006981 Men's PTC Restaurant Shoes

Working in a restaurant kitchen can be extremely hazardous and physically gruelling. 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 men's KEEN Utility 1006981 PTC water-resistant restaurant 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, this footwear helps 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 Utility 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 this workwear. 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 this men's footwear. 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 Utility 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 workers, 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 Utility PTC 1006981 restaurant shoes.

Have worn these for last 3yrs...
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.

running on cloudsI...
I just purchased the KEEN PTC DRESS OXFORDS. I have extremely bad feet, even after major surgery. These shoes are absolutely the must comfortable I have ever worn!! They are completely skid resistant! I actually tried to slide on the slipperiest spot at work and failed. It was nice not to fall on my butt (again)! Even though the shoes are heavy, compared to sports shoes there was no problem making it through the day, I walk no less than 6 miles at work through the day, the less I hurt the more everyone appreciates it!! The toes are soft but built up,so if you stub toe or drop something on toe does not hurt (near as much) I f you purchase these shoes buy your real shoe size they do not run small. I never compliment things on a computer, but anyone with bad feet and working fast paced on slippery floor this is a must!!!

walking on clouds...
I have extremely messed up feet, even after major foot surgery. The keen pts oxfords is most definitely the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn! It really does NOT slip, I tried it on the mmost dangerous spot at work! I never complimennt anything on compuuter, like this, but anyone whose feet hurt like mine thiis is a must!!! The shoes are soft toed, but firmly built up so when stub toe or drop weight on toe does not hurt,THANK GOD!!! P.S. if you order , you should get your real shoe size...they do not run small,as many shoes do.They are rather heavy,compared, to sports shoes,but hopefully that means they will last longer then 3 months (my average time for sports shoes)

Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!

I can not tell you how thrilled I am. I came home from work tonight and guess what was on my doorstep... yep, my new Danners. I have no idea how you and Danner pulled it off, but the box had stamped right on it, "MUST SHIP TODAY." I laced them up and I couldn't be more excited. Now, my hunting trip will work out. If your job is anything like mine, I'm sure you get tons of emails and try not to read more than you have to, but I would like to take a second and tell you what happened. I fell in love with Danner boots about seven years ago and have been attached to my Danner Canadians ever since. They're waterproof, warm, comfortable, and more than anything, indestructible. I had to move this summer with my job. I thought until this week that I knew exactly where my boots were, but when I started preparing for my trip I found out that they weren't where I thought. I searched high and low, but no boots. So, I decided that if I had to buy new boots, I was going to upgrade to the Trophy. I tried at LEAST 20 places before I spoke to you (the nature of the Internet), and no one had them, nor could they guarantee me that I would have them by the end of the week. I work for the second largest retailer in the US and I hope day in and day out that my folks take care of customers the way you took care of me. You didn't even know this story, but you went way beyond "website service" and made sure I had solutions. I was stressing to say the least, and I admit that I was concerned that you were making me a promise that you really couldn't control. Since you didn't have them in stock, Danner was on the hook and you were several states away. In the end, your promise of Friday delivery was exceeded by two days and, by my reckoning, from the time I spoke with you I received my boots from Portland to Charlotte in roughly 20 hours. That's CRAZY customer service. If you give me the email address of your boss, I would be happy to send this to him or her on your behalf. Otherwise, please have a great weekend. I'll send anyone I know to your website.
