I just graduated culinary school and am currently working for a catering company that get a GOOD amount of business. I have worn the chef slip-serve shoes that I bout from payless to get me through school. When I started my catering company job I bout insoles and I will not lie THEY DO NOT WORK. I have came to the realization that I do need to take care of my feet which has been told to me by many chefs but I do not know where to start. I am thinking about getting Birkenstock but I don't know if the comfort is going to be there. What I can say is that any shoes will be better then the ones i have now. Any suggestions?
