Cooking shoes: the right choice

Chefs are known for their innovative approach to cooking. The culinary community’s attention has turned to a particular piece of equipment: non-slip chef shoes.

Shoes for cooking

First of all, comfort: excellent fit and comfort are the first two necessary requirements when working for many hours standing up, it is important to wear a pair of soft shoes. It’s better not to risk going home with swollen feet and a sore back! In short, comfort is definitely not a characteristic to underestimate.

Secondly, lightness: shoes should not be an unsustainable weight. Working for many hours standing up with a heavy shoe would become torture.

Then they need a reinforced toe: third, but not least important. The reinforced toe is essential for foot protection not only from any impacts and bumps, but also from boiling liquids and any falls of heavy or sharp objects.

Which shoes and soles for cooking?

Above all, perhaps one of the most important elements, the non-slip sole. When working among the stoves, it may happen that between a little oil on the floor or butter spilled on the ground, you often have to deal with slippery substances. This is how the non-slip sole will prevent you from nasty falls and, above all, dangerous slips.

Surfaces, weights, slipping: the risks of cooking

Their innovative technology has also allowed chefs to work faster and more agilely, saving them precious time during kitchen shifts.

All of this has made the use of non-slip shoes a real trend in the culinary world.
