    I bought the leather Birki's wt. cork insert,only lasted 6 months before leather split at seam.Got the plastic(polyurethane) & inserted the cork fr. my wasted leathers.These have lasted 2 yrs. & are the most comfortable for long standing.I agree they are not that great for alot of walking.They are super easy to clean,I can see how they have become so popular.

    One thing about clogs you have to be super careful emptying H2O fr. steam kettle or handling oil etc.Not much protection wt. clogs.

    Birki all day. I like to use to pairs with different soles. Works really well on my feet. Rotate them every couple days, this is really good for your feet.

    Shoes are the most important part of your daily clothing, don't go cheap on your feet.

    I got a pair of Birki clogs and couldn't walk after a couple of weeks. I'm guessing after reading through this thread and all of the people that love them that it's just me and my crappy weak ankles that were destroyed from years of soccer as a kid.

    I picked up a pair of Timberland 5 Star Pro lace up boots and LOVE them. http://www.amazon.com/Timberland-Men...rland+pro+star. Super comfortable and plenty of support. The only issue is they don't breath all that well so they can get a little warm

    I was going to ask about these. www.crocs.com is offering my company 20% off their "work" line. I'm not a fan of Crocs in general -- though I do have a pair for around the house, and my old Crocs flip-flops were the best I've ever owned (until the new dog got to them). The Bistros (or Batali Bistros) don't interest me, but I'm curious about the Barista loafers and the Work Hover lace-ups.

    My biz partner just got me a pair of Mozo's...I was a little off put by the trendy bacon and eggs, and other various odd designs, but I gotta say they are super comfortable, come with three different inserts and have a ton of fun designs....

    Mine are black with a red sole, and a red stitched skull motif...pretty cool.

    I have used Timberline as well they are good shoes,for long standing I like the cork insert Birki's the best,however for me the Timberlines were also comfortable & in a busy kitchen give more protection than a clog.

    Been looking at these for a while. Did a weekend course with a Japanese sword maker, thats what he wore. He swore by them. Also was a 6 dan in Aikido
    I ordered a pair, like the idea of them...
