Nobody likes the feeling of losing their footing, especially while on the job. When working on your feet for hours, you really should have a good pair of shoes that are ultra-comfortable and provide good traction to prevent slippage. With this in mind, we did some research and rounded up a few of our favorite slip-resistant men’s work shoes on the market. We pulled styles for chefs, nurses, construction workers and more from popular brands like Crocs, Timberland Pro and Skechers.

These slip-ons deliver a relaxed fit that's slightly tapered at the heel for security and Crocs Lock slip-resistant treads.
Pros: Enhanced arch support adds comfort. Deeply cushioned footbeds paired with supportive Croslite foam outsoles deliver exceptional comfort.
