Meet William Keeble, a YNCOTY 2020 Finalist

As a proud sponsor of Young National Chef of the Year, we wanted to do something to help the chefs on their journey. So... we decided to give all the semi-finalists a FREE pair of their WearerTech shoe of choice to help them through the hours of cooking and pressure...

We've caught up with one of the finalists, William Keeble about his thoughts about the competition as well as how he's finding his WearerTech shoes. William is a demi chef de partie at Whatley Manor. See what he has to say...

Feelings ahead of the final...

I am excited for the final, this will be my first time cooking in front of a large crowd but I know if I focus solely on what I need to do, I will be able to produce my best.

Top tips for managing the pressure...

For me, getting a lot of practice in before competing really helps, so when it comes to the final I'm able to visualise what I need to do and when.

Favourite WearerTech shoe...

At work, I'm currently wearing the Refresh shoe, they are considerably more comfy than my previous shoes and feel very light.

Feet are aching less...

Since wearing them, I have noticed my feet aching less after work which is such a bonus.

Thinking about getting a pair?

I would definitely recommend WearerTech shoes to anyone who finds their current shoes uncomfortable. Being able to customise the insole for arch height means they'll fit anyone's needs.
