I have been wearing defender II low top lace up steel toe work boots from shoes for crews for a couple of years, and they work well for about 6-8 months before the interior lining around the toes starts to deteriorate, causing my big toe nails to grind against the steel plate, and about the same time as the sole starts to peel away from the bottom of the shoe at the front. Also they stink after 6-8 months, so much so that I can smell my shoes from a standing position. I have to take my shoes off and leave them outside before coming in the house after work. Granted I am hell on wheels, so to speak, I wear these shoes 6 days a week, 12-14 hours a day, constantly moving, pivoting, and sweating in them. However I feel like there must be a great shoe made for chefs or the same day to day demands that I could invest in. Any suggestions?
