    Lace ups? My Finns last me about a year before the stitching comes loose at the toe. I know the earlier ones were rumored to fall apart fast.

    I had two pairs of lace up about a year apart from each other. Both came apart pretty quick

    I had a canvas pair that fell apart pretty quick. Might’ve been the natural.
    I like the style and comfort of most of the stuff from the mozo brand. I’d gladly pay more if they would last longer.

    I'm on my 2nd pair of Mozo Forza, 1at was good for about 2 yr before they started looking like crap. Still structurally sound. Just got new ones.

    I've been using birkis for years now but these last couple of pairs are not holding up like they used to. I'm going to have to try something new out as well.

    Have had these for like 5 years. Best working shoes ever. And will probably last atleats few more years. Not the best looking ones, not the cheapest ones. But still, best ones.

    Edit. Jalas exalter, don't known if you can find these outside Finland

    For a cheap very comfortable option: STICO clogs
    Expensive long lasting option: Belleville hot weather gortex sided USMC boots, I get about 3 years from each pair.

    Bistro Clogs with the soft orange insole. Work great. Only down side is your feet tend to sweat but in a commercial kitchen you tend to sweat most of the time!
