No slip shoes?

Hey

So currently have two jobs, one at a specialty foods store, the other a diner. and the person I talked to about the job brought up no slip shoes...I honestly have never heard of them. I guess the sole will not slip on the group. I am pretty sure this is a big chefware type thing but I just wanted to check out if anyone knew of any specific shoes and whether they are widely available. She does want me to get them pretty soon.

Thanks

huh? does she mean just shoes with a sole that has pattern on the buttom? it's like your wheel on your bike, some have more patterns then others to avoid slipping, same thing... what it is over here ( and Im an the food industry) is just running shoes with some sort of slipping resistant pattern on the sole.

I guess there is such thing as a no slip sole...I mean I am wearing sneakers for the time being.

Yeah I would think tennis shoes or the like would work. Something comfortable though!

Even workboots offer it.

I think you can get no slip doc martens if those are your thing.
