So I've been looking online to find the best deal on the type of shoes we need--black, non-slip, closed-toed kitchen shoes. 
The school recommended Danskos, which I'm really not a fan of. I don't want to spend $115+ on a pair of shoes that I think are hideous (no offense if you like them....not my style).

I emailed the school to see what all the options were, and was kind of surprised to find out Payless Shoes has a line of restaurant shoes...and they're less than half the price! (yes I realize Payless doesn't always make the best shoes...but with no income right now, they fit my budget).

The safeTstep shoes come in a ton of styles, and I woke up to a 25% off my entire purchase coupon in my email this morning, so I went to take a look.

I narrowed it down to these....

In the end I went with the ones on the left, they seemed to have more padding to stand on them for hours at a time. With my coupon and the lack of sales tax (I drove to Jantzen Beach) they ended up costing about $26. And, once I figure out what's up with my Financial Aid on Thursday, I may end up getting the pair on the right as well :)

For the record, I'm not sure Danskos come in my size anyway....I wear a kids size 4


  1. Did you get a size 4 of the Payless ones? Were there any really cute ones for people who only need non-slip and not "kitchen shoes"?

    1. I had to get a size 5, so they're a little roomy. And they have a ton of non-slip shoes, if you click the safeTstep link it will show you.
