Thankfully, popular shoe manufacturers that once directed all of their attention to athletic shoes have finally acknowledged the nursing shoe market. Today there are alternatives that offer modern, athletic, slip resistant and light weight features. No matter what your particular preference is, there are finally flattering and attractive alternatives.

Slip resistant soles are a welcome addition especially for nurses and medical personnel that are walking around hospitals and medical clinics all day. Avia offers 2 walking shoes styles for with slip resistant soles for under $35.00. First, Avia offers a walking shoe in both black and white for $29.99 that offers a synthetic upper and rubber outsole that are both oil resistant. They’ve added Canitlever technology to cushion the foot for extra comfort. Wide and regular widths are available. In addition, Avia added an Archrocker option this year for $34.99 which is available in regular and wide widths. The Archrocker technology helps promote a comfortable gait. The outsole still has Cantilever technology for comfort.

Skechers also offers several tried and true nursing shoe options modeled after walking shoes. The D’Lites shoe, the slip on Premix and the Marathon-slip resistant are all popular styles. The D’Lites are available in wide and combine leather and synthetic in the upper with a lighter weight outsole for better comfort on long days. The Premix has been very popular because it has an elastic closure rather than shoe laces which allow a quick slip on. The Marathon offers a slip resistant outsole and a leather/synthetic upper. It’s an excellent value at $39.49.

Skechers also recognized that nursing shoes don’t always have to be white. The Skechers Work line offers a Clara slip resistant clog in 4 different colors. Lightweight, strapless and certified slip resistant, it adds a little style and color to any nursing scrubs ensemble. It’s available in blue, light blue, pink and turquoise for $17.99.

Taking the nursing shoe market by storm are Natural Uniforms’ light weight clogs. For those who appreciate value, these ultra light weight clogs are $9.99. At that price, you can have a pair in every color. They are available in a variety of styles, with an adjustable strap, strapless, and closed heel. Customers love the light weight. Even for those who don’t wear their Natural Uniforms clogs to work, they provide welcome relieve at the end of a long shift, a great gardening shoe or beach shoe and a nice change for the weekend.

What is most important is that you find a pair of shoes that offer you the best comfort for your long days. Hopefully all of the new options available will make that task a lot easier.

Chef Apparel—Putting it all together

With the increase in food channels, cooking shows, cooking competitions and online access to cooking demonstrations, more and more people are developing the courage to strive for cooking like a professional chef. Many also want to look like a professional chef. Whether you’re a professional chef, an amateur cook or just whipping up fine cuisine for a family gathering, appropriate chefwear is a must. Though you may not need every element of a proper chef uniform, selecting the right components can make your culinary experience more comfortable, more functional and more fun.

A complete chef wear uniform can consist of any combination of the following: a chef jacket, chef hat, chef pants, bandanna, neckerchief, scarf, bow tie, apron and comfortable slip resistant shoes. Of course, each chef has his or her own preference, but the concept behind a chef’s uniform is that it should aid the chef in preparing food comfortably and hygienically especially under busy and often hot kitchen environments. For chef’s that are exposed to their diners, chef wear should offer some element of style as well.

Every part of the chef uniform plays an important role. The chef hat, for example, holds hair in place for obvious reasons. It can be personalized with the chef’s name, even if the chef is dad, or a restaurant logo. Aprons aid chefs of all skill levels to keep clothes clean, for wiping hands and for keeping kitchen implements close at hand. Like the chef hat, aprons can be personalized with embroidery to add more professional touch. Chef jackets are available with short or long sleeves and in a variety of styles. They are generally made of soil resistant twill for easy washing. A pocket on the sleeve for a thermometer is a helpful feature as is a chest pocket and underarm vents. The jacket can be embroidered with the chef’s name or the restaurant logo as well. Chef pants are available in many styles from solids to chalkstripe to houndstooth to caliente! They are generally baggy and darker in color so that inevitable spills go unnoticed. In the darker colors, they contrast well against white chef jackets, providing a professional chef appearance.

Not every chef wears every piece of a chef uniform. Each restaurant or kitchen has its own dress code, but cleanliness, professionalism and presentation often lead the chef wear decisions. Though originally designed for function, chef wear components also make statement about style, especially because many restaurants expose the kitchen to diners. In many dining establishments, the chef is not hidden behind the swinging kitchen door. They often circulate through the restaurant checking in with diners or even prepare certain dishes at the table. In those instances, stylish, easy to clean and comfortable chef wear is critical.

Whether you are a member of the culinary profession, an accomplished caterer, a home chef or a beginner, chef wear can make a huge impact in your kitchen experience. It can change the entire look of your restaurant team or just make you feel like a kitchen professional in your own home.
