About us

Our story

Our mission since 1978 is to reduce pain for people who are on their feet all day at work. We’ve developed footwear that takes the pressure off hardworking feet and improves the lives of hardworking chefs and kitchen workers – people just like you. We’ve helped over six million people breeze through long working days on their feet. Our shoes help our customers become more productive, and to experience less pain and discomfort in their back, knees, legs and feet.

WearerTech shoes are put through their paces in real-life kitchens – with all the heat, hygiene and hazards you’re used to. The feedback we get from chefs helps us under- stand the pressures you’re under from being on your feet day in, day out – and make our shoes better as a result.

WearerTech: Shoes with added science 

These clever shoes come with added science – literally!

We work closely with the experts at the University of Salford to combine biomechanics (the way your body works) with material science (the way stuff works). Since 2015, scientists at the university’s health sciences faculty and the knee, ankle and foot biomechanics research department have been helping us to create shoes with a difference. The knowledge, biomechanical data and advanced ergonomics we gain from working with them helps us understand how the shoes you wear make a difference to your working day.

But we don’t stop there. Every feature of every WearerTech shoe goes through a cycle of design, refinement, testing and improvement. This five-stage process enables us to manufacture shoes that provide comfort and support for our hardworking customers. We call this process the Wearer Innovation Loop

87% of people who have tried our shoes will recommend it to a friend.
