Playing chef this Thanksgiving and cooking up a storm? Make sure you have all the right equipment — pots and pans as well as a pair of slip-resistant shoes.
Don’t think you have to pass on fashion just because you’re wearing kitchen-friendly footwear. The industry has come a long way from the basic black clog. Today, there are lots of trend-driven ways to play it safe when prepping a meal: classic closed-back clogs from Sanita, Dansko, Crocs and Abeo in fun, colorful prints, athletic styles from Klogs and Shoes for Crews and even ankle boots from Mozo. And since these looks mirror current fashion trends, you won’t have to kick them off when sitting down to dinner.
These professional kitchen styles are not out of reach due to their prices. While there are styles that hit the $100-plus mark, there are more affordable options that can be had for less than $50, so there is no excuse not to play it safe.
These slip-resistant styles don’t need to be tucked away in the closet after the holiday is over. Keep them on hand anytime you’re on kitchen duty. Slips and falls can easily happen when simply making a pot of coffee.
