Comfortable shoe to wear for long hours of standing

I am looking to buy my dad a pair of comfortable shoe to wear while standing for long periods of time.

I heard dr.scholl is good?

I don't think Dr. Scholls makes shoes.. :confused:

What style are you looking for - a dress, running shoe, or sneaker?

Like, for work in a kitchen? For insurance purposes, you'll need non-slip soled (little squares) shoes that "don't slip" on grease, oil, etc. So, your options are pretty limited. I'd look at insoles rather than shoes.

Depending how much you're looking to spend, Birkenstock makes a chef clog that is pretty popular among chefs, and very comfortable.

Whatever shoes you buy make sure they have oil resistant soles.

There should be a marking on the sole that tells you they're safe to be worn on oily surfaces.

Hey, do a search for what chefs and cooks like to wear. There are many discussions on the net.

I like profi-birkis, and so do many cooks. Check out also dansko and sanita clogs, crocs bistro.
