I have been in the restaurant business for over 25 years and have been looking for a shoe that has support and comfort that is slip resistant. When you spend 10-12hrs a day on your feet and doing a lot of walking, Dansko shoes have been remarkable. I used to buy 3-4 pairs of shoes a year. The last pair of these lasted me 16 months. I would recommend these to anyone who spends time on thier feet for long hours. It's nice to come home and not have aching feet and legs because you have the right supportive and comfortable shoes. HIgly recomended!!
