Barefoot shoe that's also slip resistant?

My new job working as a food runner at a restaurant is ruining my efforts toward ankle flexibility. I bought the recommended clunky platform clogs with a non-slip outsole (very very important to avoid a concussion walking on the grease-misted kitchen floor), but I can feel my heel cord tightening a little more after each shift.

Is this shoe anywhere on the market? -Womens, black color -Doesn't look too athletic -Minimal heel to toe drop -Slip resistant outsole for restaurant work -Covered upper (avoid burning the tops of my feet if something hot is dropped)

My research so far has only led me to flat "looking" shoes with no specifications about heel-to-toe drop. Should I call the companies? Should I buy them and return them if they don't feel flat enough? I need a solution soon. Thanks so much!

Try Vivo barefoot, should have what you're looking for

I've got a pair from leguano and love them but the uppers are generally very thin (mine have wool uppers)

My sister and many of her friends are all servers and they are very happy with Dansko shoes, they are very popular with waitresses.
