It's that time again. I've crushed another pair of shoes into an unrecognizable mass of plastic and rubber. Does anyone have a favorite brand? Every time I buy new shoes I ask others about The Pair, but despite following such advice nothing I've bought has been both sufficiently durable and comfortable.

I made the mistake of spending 100+ on a pair of red wing "non slip" shoes and have vowed never to let anyone wear these rollerskates in a kitchen if I can. Shoes for crews and sketchers non slips last 6 months to less than a year, and for the $50ish are the best bet I've found. Dr scholls, although comfortable, haven't been able to last more than a month for me. I hope more people chime in cause I'm very interested in what people have to offer.

I have some Ecco boots that are amazing. Waterproof (huge for catering outside), comfy and super durable. They're pricey but will last forever and can be re soled for a reasonable price.

I have always liked Sanitas clogs. Did wonders for my back.

Mozo makes some cool kitchen shoes I find the sharks one that most comfortable shoes, the only problem is those slits of the side when cleaning the floors water gets in them pretty easily

, Keen makes a comfortable kitchen shoe clog like.

I've always preferred Merrells. The insoles wear out quickly but the shoes are very comfortable overall to me. I have, I think, 12 different pair now. I stick the gel work boot insoles in mine with a little double sided tape. When I was working behind a bar I used the same pair of solid black Mocs for about 2.5 years with new insoles every 4-6 months if I remember correctly. The leather wax is important to keep them water resistant.

+1 Merrel Realm Mocs. I dont have much arch in my feet, and my feet aren't wide either. I find these most comfortable. Insoles do wear quickly, but I've mostly used aftermarket insoles. Use to rock Sketchers, never going back to those.

I might have to try the Merrells. I actually have tried Mozo shoes and initially liked then a great deal, but they fell to pieces in less than two months.

I bought a pair of Danskos when I first got into the field, and that pair lasted 4 hard years. Bought a second pair that fell apart in 6 months. After that, I switched to Crocs, which also wear out every 6 months or so, but they only cost $40. I'm finding that I need a bit more support than the Crocs offer, so I just ordered a pair of Klogs, as recommended by a friend. Tried on the Merrells and liked the fit, so that's probably what I'll go to if the Klogs don't work out. Several of my coworkers swear by the Birkenstocks as well.
