    Footwear Poll

    I notice we don't have a poll function like I see in other forums. Bummer. Anyway, I'm thinking of switching footwear in the kitchen. What do you guys like? Clogs, black casuals, tennis shoes, motorcycle boots, what? Even better, if you strongly prefer something or despise a particular type of shoe for some reason, please share why.

    Thanks!

    Try the rubber Birkenstocks ONCE and you will be hooked. Not a great walking shoe, but terrific for standing all day and no dryrot.

    I wear Vibram Trek LS, I am a big believer in minimalist footwear, no foot or back pain since I switched to minimalist shoes. It does take some time to adapt to less shoe, allow the foot muscles to properly strengthen, but I will never go back to regular thick, squishy, soled shoes.

    +1 for profi birkis. I actually prefer the leather and cork clogs, but in my kitchen we scrub our own floors, so they tend to die too quickly.

    Shoes for crews here, usually 2 pair/year, but I bought the black label and so far I am a year strong and still going.

    Birkis have that weird bump by the toes. Have a pair and hate them. Current favs are actually the new Croc Bitalli Bistros in carbon....wouldn't be caught dead outside of work in them, though.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
