    Agree with the whole statement.. Hate the burkis cause of the bump.. Either crocs or shoes for crews.

    +1 on crocs, but you won't be winning any style points, but hey you will be comfortable.

    +1000

    I have the shoes for crews clogs and I have been going over 2 years with them, and I've worn them tons more than just in the kitchen. I recently got a new pair since I've almost worn out the tread on the heels of the first ones, but I can't bring myself to retire the old ones they are just too comfortable in them. The first pair I got were the white ones (to just be different) second pair are black and I love them both. For under 25/30 bucks for 2 years hard hard use I can't see myself getting anything else anytime soon.

    Dusty, Shankster, and Hax, I've looked over the Birkenstock website and don't see any rubber ones nor any that match up with "Profi". I have never worn Birkenstocks and know nothing about them. Any help?

    Thanks,

    Kalaeb,

    What kind of show from there? Clogs, a work boot, black athletic shoe?

    Thanks,

    Sorry guys,

    Thanks for the references but except for the crocs and Birkenstocks I can't tell if you are referring to clogs or work shoes or something else?

    I had crocs bistro, and they were fantastic when I worked a small line and didn't walk much. But then I left them outside in the sun when wet and they shrank....I wore them anyways, they were too tight for a few months. One of the dumbest things I've ever done--ruined my life for a few years, lost some bone and a tonenail, and they almost had to amputate my foot(not kidding at all). All I'm saying is, get good shoes.

    The shoes for crews is what I'm wearing now because I am running around all day at my current job and they wear out so bloody fast. I can see the plastic poking through the heel in about 3 weeks. I lose the soles at about 4-5 months. I need to check for this "Black Label" thing from them.

    I wear the birki's closed back clog. Had my first pair for 3 yrs. the second now for a year. Hate shoes for crew's the gave my feet up to my legs bad cramps, and pain with over a hour of standing or walking in them. I do a ton of turning and am bad on the soles of the shoes.

    I first fell in love with a clog style from a pair of free pair of "Klogs". Never could find more.

    +1. I'm not a cook but I've spent long hours on my feet. I've tried a lot of footwear and the $200 insole thing. I love Vibrams. I also use Merrill's minimalist shoes when I want to wear some socks.
