    super birkis, ugly as sin but very slip resistant and durable. Walk into any kitchen in Toronto and at least 30-40% of people are wearing them.

    3 yrs of usage so far, I've replaced the cork insole once. No noticeable damage to the rubber, very easy to clean. They've been the most durable shoe I've ever owned.

    I'm tempted to go for Brikenstock London if these ever croak. Based on this thread, people that've owned both suggest the London is even more comfy. Plus they're actually decent looking enough to be seen in the real world with (ie outside kitchen).

    Which brings up a pet peeve of mine. Don't wear your kitchen shoes outside the kitchen! That's just gross to me.

    Labor of love, I've been wearing Mozos for over a year. They are very durable. The soles last forever and have unmatched traction in a kitchen. They are also comfortable, and come with several interchangeable insoles. Worth the money.

    i remember. the mozos right? all the ones i saw had weird patterns. do they make solid black? my concern with those were the slots on the sides. but i think you mentioned that water doesnt get into your clogs, correct?

    +1 for Merrills - I got the encore gust after reading this thread a while back. Super comfy and look like an actual shoe. Birkis had better non slip though.

    I like Dansko but not the clogs. The
    Actual shoe. I don't care for any clogs.

    (As noted in an earlier post) I've been wearing the Dansko Pro (Wide) for at least the past 5 years. I've been encountering some toe crunching lately and decided a switcheroo was prudent. I went with the Birkenstock Alton.
    Even (almost $100 more) pricier than the Dansko, but a really nice shoe. I've been told they should/could last me about 5 years which is cool, because I go through about 1 pair of Dansko a year.
    They are taking some getting used to. I think they're comfy once I've broken them in a little, but feel a little more pain in my lower legs in the morning. I guess it's just the difference of how the shoes make you stand/walk. The Birkenstock is a flat-footed type, while the 'Sko points your toes down and forces you to bend your knees a little while standing.
    I alternate the 2 during a work week and am enjoying it. I can't really say one is better than the other though.
    I'll let you know if the Birks last 5 years.
