The Best Safety Trainers for Warehouses and Kitchens

Slips, trips and falls are leading causes of accidents in the workplace. One of the biggest reasons for this is an inadequate slip-resistant outsole on footwear. That’s why it’s important to invest in a good pair of shoes to wear to work.


Safety footwear is an even better choice than regular work shoes, thanks to additional features such as a steel or composite toe cap to protect you from more hazards. Here are the best safety trainers for warehouse and kitchen roles.


Best Shoes for Warehouse Work

Working in a warehouse means you’re on your feet for hours, navigating across various tough surfaces like concrete and steel. There are also lots of potential hazards in this type of workplace, including: 


  • Slips, trips and falls as a result of slippery surfaces, poorly lit areas and unproductive layouts in the warehouse. 
  • Sharp objects, such as nails or broken glass can easily puncture your shoes and injure your feet if you aren’t wearing high-quality safety footwear. 
  • Falling heavy objects are common in the workplace. A lot of warehouses have items stacked up to the high ceiling so it’s easy for one to slip and fall to the ground. 

The Solution To Avoiding Slips, Trips and Falls

Look for a pair of safety shoes that offers the following features:


  • Slip and clog-resistant outsole.
  • Tapered outsole to minimise the risk of tripping when moving from different floor surfaces.
  • Steel or composite toes.
  • Water-resistant or waterproof exterior.

We recommend X1100N81 — this style enables you to cover more ground in the warehouse. Features include a superior clog-resistant outsole, steel toe caps and a waterproof material, helping you feel more confident on your shift.

Clyde offers safety and comfort. It’s a slip and puncture-resistant safety shoe with a microfibre upper and waterproof material. Plus, it’s vegan and easy to clean.

Best Shoes For Working in a Kitchen

Working in a kitchen involves lots of running around with potential hazards such as spilt liquids to be aware of. You’ll be handing heavy, hot and sharp objects which means you’ll need shoes that are durable and made to the highest standards.

Here are some common hazards in the kitchen: 


  • There’s the potential for liquids and oils to spill when preparing food in the kitchen, which can lead to slips, trips and falls. 
  • Kitchen staff work with sharp knives that can potentially fall and injure your feet. 
  • Long, hectic shifts can lead to foot aches and pains.

Look for a pair of safety shoes that offers the following features:


  • Slip-resistant outsoles.
  • Steel or composite toes.
  • Puncture-resistant footbed.
  • Waterproof or water-resistant exterior.

For a kitchen porter, we recommend our stylish Roma81 safety trainers. They feature a steel toe and are lightweight. With a tapered outsole that minimises the risk of tripping. It’s ideal for moving around different surfaces.


These safety trainers are durable too, which means you won’t have to replace them every couple of months.

For chefs, Zinc is a particular favourite. It’s comfortable, lightweight, water and slip-resistant — everything a chef needs. Not only is it vegan and easy to clean, but it’s also available in black.
