ChefTrapps has proved itself as one of the brands of choice when looking for excellent quality, stylish, durable, genuine outdoor shoes.

Nurses & Hospitals

While these styles are not limited to hospitals and clinics, they have a wide appeal to nurses and hospital staff as they are extremely comfortable and help staff to work to work those 12 hour and longer shifts without the added problems for burning feet or an aching lower back.

The recommended styles are made of a soft leather and have a leather lining and innersole with arch support.

The winners in this category are: the push in Sports Clog with its innovative swivel blackstrap for support and fashion, the Closed back European Clog, the twin gusset Chelsea Shoe on 30 mm wedge heel, the Comfort Court on a 30 mm wedge heel, the Comfort court featuring a 35 mm stacked heel. Also popular is the Bistro and New Classic Trainers.

All of these styles have the unique ChefTrapps Slip Resistant Rubber Outsole which gives comfort and reduces slips and falls.

ChefTrapps has all the basic styles as well as the more fashionable styles for management and executives. The top end styles are Good Year Welted, the leather is a full grain waxy pull up leather and extremely comfortable.

Very durable shoe. I wear them 9 hrs a day, 5 days a week and last for about a year each pair. I'm sure if one were to calculate the amount of hours I stand, walk, run, sprint in these shoes - they are well worth EVERY cent!! I don't think any other clothing item I own has ever been worn this much and lasted this long! Great shoes!!
