Certainly, wearing shoes made for folks who are on their feet a lot helps a 
lot. Not sure why restaurants don't do that - or maybe some do. Best would be 
to talk to some professional cooks.

Does it make sense to use the durable easy to clean concrete floor and
then pad the feet?

That way it would give you a flooring that is easy to clean, always
looks good, but the feet are fully protected?
