    Just 21 Pairs Of Cute, Slip-Resistant Shoes

    Footwear that'll help keep ya' on your toes instead of on the ground.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.

    1. A luxe Birkenstock "Super Grip" leather work shoe that truly gives its all when it comes to support and stability. Made of quality cork and leather, these Birks will mold to your feet and distribute weight evenly from a.m. to p.m.

    Promising review: "I liked the super grip rubber bottom part that was definitely a slip resistant shoe. I work in a restaurant so it can get pretty slippery back there in the kitchen and this Birkenstock really suprised me in comparison to the typical Birkenstock clog. The only bad part maybe is they run ridiculously big. So definitely size down and the price is a little steep but what is the price of a comfortable foot when you’re working on your feet for 12 hours? The answer is pricele$$."Jess

    Get them from Amazon for $99.90+ (available in sizes 4–13.5 with narrow options, five colors, and two styles).

    2. A pair of vegan Snibbs "Spacecloud" work sneakers featuring OrthoLite insoles, water-resistant outsoles, and a convenient slip-on design, all of which will have you humming, "I'm still standing" all day long.

    Promising review: "I work in the restaurant industry. I’m in my feet for hours at a time and all always moving. Snibbs has definitely surprised me! I walked in my kitchen that I normally slip and slide all over. I was able to walk confidently without being worried about falling. Being able to work pain free! No more knee or hip pain." —Tessa

    Get them from Snibbs for $149+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 13 colors).

    3. A pair of eco-friendly Gales "Frontline Nurse" shoes designed with healthcare professionals in mind. These kicks tick the boxes of being waterproof, slip-resistant, and antimicrobial. Safety is the top priority here!

    Promising review: "As a surgical resident, I get so much use out of these shoes. I was a little skeptical as they did squeak when I first put them on, but the squeaking has stopped and they are very comfortable for long shifts on my feet. I get so many compliments on these shoes and nurses/doctors asking where I got them. They also protect my feet and wipe clean really easily so I’m not afraid when I get blood/fluids on them. Have become my favorite shoes. Highly recommend!" —S

    Promising review: "I was recommended to buy this shoe for extra walking during lengthy vacations. My friend swore that her European vacation was a success because these shoes kept her going all day. I bought a pair and fell in love instantly.

I can go until 10 p.m. with these shoes on and not feel the heaviness, swollen, tired feet that most other shoes give me. The insoles are magical!" —Gaston & Dianna Isidron
