    Just 25 Pairs Of Slip-Resistant Shoes You Won't Slide Around In

    1. A best-selling pair of Shoes for Crews "Vitality II" sneakers designed with plenty of ventilation and water-resistant outsoles that personally helped me get through many (slippery) years of being a server and barista.

    I learned two things while working in the restaurant industry: how to kind of make a Manhattan and the importance of *actually* comfortable shoes. Seriously, you don't know what blisters are until you have to walk in uncomfortable shoes from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. That said, these have probably saved my life a time or two, especially during bartending and barista shifts when the soda hose went rogue or someone accidentally brewed another batch of coffee into an already-full urn. These are truly slip resistant and won't leave you with aching feet by the end of your shift. You'll forget you're wearing them until one of your coworkers compliments you. They're also cute and not "clunky" looking, which is a huge plus. Overall, totally recommend these kicks!

    Get them from Amazon for $64.98+ (available in sizes 5–11 with wide options).

    2. A slip-resistant pair of Crocs "On the Clock" clogs for anyone tired of machine washing their sneakers every time something spills on them. Just wipe these off with some soap and water, and you're good to go!

    FYI, these shoes are included in Prime Try Before You Buy, so you can give them a trial run if you’re a member!

    Promising review: "Everyone I work with said these were the most comfortable shoes to work in, so I jumped on the bandwagon. Let me tell you, these things feel like you're on a cloud at times. They breathe, the insoles are very comfortable, and they take a lot of the stress off my back. They are extremely slip resistant. It’s been two weeks now, and the insoles don't feel like they are completely compressed. And Amazon Prime's Try Before You Buy makes these a no brainer." —Patrick Balfour

    Get them from Amazon for $30+ (available in sizes 6–15 and five colors).

    3. 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: "The leather on these shoes is nice and naturally breathable, which means I can get through an entire 12-hour shift without changing socks or being uncomfortable. My feet aren't sore or wet when I get home. This pair has a non-skid sole on them, which is different from previous pairs of work Birkenstocks I've owned, and I appreciate it. It has already saved me from slipping on something rather unpleasant on the floor at work."Heather

    Get them from Amazon for $140+ (available in sizes 6–13.5 with narrow options and six colors).

    4. A sporty pair of memory foam sneakers touting moisture-wicking foam insoles and flexible non-slip outsoles that'll seamlessly move with you as you walk.

From the first minute I put these on and the few weeks I have had them, my feet are in heaven. I am on my feet at least 10+ hours for my job, and these shoes have been amazing. I hope they hold up because if they do, I have found my holy grail of sneakers. On top of all of that, these are super cute." —Kelley P.

    Get them from Snibbs for $135 (available in sizes 5–11 and eight colors).

    Promising review: "These shoes have been a blessing! I work at a restaurant, and sometimes, I am on my feet for almost nine hours a day, and when I get home, these shoes make it so I don’t feel the pain in my feet.

Highly recommend these if you have a job where you are constantly on your feet." —Sadie Wisehart

    Promising review: "I'm a mechanic; these are the absolute best non-slips I've had in my life. There is no break in period; they come out of the box comfortable. The anti-skid outsole is absurdly grippy compared to other brands I've owned, and they look just like Chucks at a glance, which fits my style perfectly. I have the canvas, and I just ordered the all-leather flavor so I can switch them out for longevity. I mean, they're Chucks. If you like Chucks and wished they were non-skid, just buy these. Great shoes." —DanO

    Get them from Amazon for $54.98+ (available in sizes 5.5–14.5).

    20. A pair of slip-on Laforst flats created with a Sunbrella fabric upper (which means they're water-resistant and super durable) plus memory foam cushioned insoles that tick the boxes of being stylish and slip resistant in one go.

    Promising review: "These have saved my long-night server life. I can work 10 hours in these, and they are just as comfortable at the end of the night as when I first put them on. I wear the ped socks with them, and they're perfect. And not to mention, cute with my jeans, which is my uniform. Would recommend to all restaurateurs." —C. Max

    Get them from Amazon for $39.98+ (available in sizes 6–12 and two colors).

    21. A trusty leather New Balance industrial shoe created with a non-marking and oil-resistant outsole that'll easily become your new go-to work shoes.

    Promising review: "I've been getting this specific shoe for a long time now. I work in a kitchen, so I needed slip resistant, but also something that was comfy as I have high arched feet. I pair these shoes with the Pinnacle Powerstep insert for plantar fasciitis, and my feet are never sore after a long day of 12K+ steps! I def recommend this shoe for comfort, support, and durability." —Kat

    Get them from Amazon for $53.99+ (available in sizes 5–13 with wide and extra wide options, plus three colors).
