I’ve worn about 6 different types of shoes in the kitchen over the last 11 years. Most recently I had Birkenstock’s for 3 years that did pretty well, but I would come home every day with sore knees, ankles and feet. After 2 weeks in the Bragards, I must say I’m impressed. They felt broken in from day 1, no leg fatigue or soreness at the end of the day. They’re adjustable, which makes finding the perfect fit a breeze. I ordered size 12, I traditionally wear an 11. I had always cheaper out on shoes, but I will continue to repurchase these as long as they are available. Well worth the money, and the quality is apparent. I’ve already talked 2 chef friends into switching over, and I recommend you do the same!
