There seems to be a good deal of fitting problems with clogs be it Dansko or Shoes for Crews or Birkenstock. Clogs to me seem easy to clean for a nice appearance, but their practical value diminishes with the fact that it is a clog and cannot be laced up tighter if they are too loose. Or if too tight, can be unlaced a little.
My work shoes are disgusting looking, they're 40 dollar Nikes, they're caked in flower from slapping dough, and have who knows what else on them. I imagine if they were clogs they would be clean.
However, going with the logic that your feet are one of the most important things in a kitchen, I would overlook mere aesthetics for comfort and usefullness.
For instance, take the Excursions from Shoes for Crews. They're suede, witch means softness. Let's face it, leather isn't soft. They are Water Resistant too, which means your feet won't get soaked! The Excursions have a non-slip sole, and a non-slip sole on a sneaker is the ****!
Although, the Excursions can't be wiped down so easily like the leather clogs. Which means your Excursions will look like *** most of the time. As I said, usefullness over looks.
To be quite honest, at 40 dollars a pair, you could buy another set of them every few months if you're worried about looks.
I fear the clogs would simply slip off my feet if I had to run in the kitchen. I work with a large kitchen staff and we have to acrobat ourselves around one another while moving throughout the kitchen. Clogs seems like they would interfere in some way, like they are awkard to some degree.
Despite the fact that the clogs can be easily cleaned, can anyone say that their clogs are better than sneakers with slip resistant soles?
