thing is too, i have very small feet. i need size 4 for ladies, size 2 for kids.

They specialize in shoes for restaurant and health care workers. My kids both work in restaurant and I buy these for them. They come in a variety of styles, slip resistant, leather, athletic, arch support, etc.


To keep socks from getting wet, have you considered high-tops? I believe SFC carries high-tops.


Both my kids say the SFC provide great traction.

Look for non-slip shoes. Payless sells some. Shoes for Crews makes only non-slip work shoes.
