Whether you’re working part time to earn some extra cash or you’re a seasoned veteran to the serving game, you know that being a server can very rough on your body.
From carrying food to rushing in and out of a hot and busy kitchen, after your shift you can’t wait to kick off your shoes and prop your feet up. Because of this, having the right waiter shoes is even more important.
As a server, you want to keep a few things in mind when investing in a new pair of work shoes:
- Cushion: Working a long shift is not only exhausting, but with improper shoes, it can also be painful. You want to make sure that the shoes you are wearing have the proper cushion in order to support and keep your feet comfortable through your whole entire shift.
- Style: Now, this will depend on your restaurant’s environment. From upscale dining to a more causal and laid back setting, there are safe and comfortable shoes perfect for either atmosphere. You chose the one best for your work environment.
- Arch Support: Arch support is crucial! Having a good shoe that supports the health of your foot will ultimately be more beneficial for you and your body.
- Quality: Price may be your first concern, but buying better quality shoes actually saves money in the long run. Shoes that are constructed using the best materials and proper construction should serve you for well over 6 months, which means you don’t have to buy shoes as often.
