Best Socks For Restaurant Workers
If you work in a restaurant as a waiter, waitress or hostess, you are constantly on your feet. When I was a waitress, I remember coming home at the end of the day with tired legs and super sore feet. I tried different shoes (that were acceptable with the dress code) and propped my feet up when I got home, but shift after shift, my legs would still ache. As it turns out, prevention is key. Whether you are a waiter, waitress, bartender or chef, you can prevent fatigue at the end of your shift by wearing compression socks. Here are a few options that are perfect for people who spend a lot of time on their feet. More often than not, when you work in a restaurant, you have to wear a uniform or have guidelines to follow.
If you're in need of a solid black sock, the Sigvaris Sea Island Cotton Socks are a great option. Cotton breathes really well so you can stay cool no matter how much you're running around. They are available for men and women. This sock provides 15-20mmHg compression to keep your legs energized, prevent swelling and relieve tired, achy legs. Another option is the Allegro Italian Cotton Knee High. This durable sock also provides 15-20mmHg compression and is designed with a super soft ribbed pattern and a reinforced heel and toe to prevent holes from your shoes rubbing. The Allegro Italian Cotton Sock is available in Grey, Black, Beige, Brown and Navy and is made for men and women.
If you wear long pants (and your socks don't matter), or if you work in a place with a more relaxed dress code, try Sockwell compression socks. They come in tons of great patterns and colors. These socks are really soft and comfortable and make a big difference at the end of the day. Sockwell compression socks provide arch support and are designed with a seamless toe closure to prevent irritation. If you need a sock with more padding, try the Sockwell Plantar Cush Sock, designed with extra compression across the arch of the foot to decrease pain.
