After being in the restaurant industry for over 20 years and using Rockport's, I bought a pair of Shoes for Crews on recommendation from a fellow employee This shoe is simply amazing. They are the most slip-proof shoe I've ever worn. When I'm in the kitchen and someone asks me if it's slippery in there, because water is everywhere, I have to say honestly, "I don't know." These shoes don't slip even when walking through a tiled floor that's three inches in water. The Shoes For Crews sole is truly designed to be slip-proof. At this point, I've purchased a pair of Shoes for Crews froggies (similar to crocs) in the same brand and another pair for at home casual wear. It's become a standard in our family. When we are doing anything that has even the slightest chance of slipping, it's time to put on our Shoes for Crews. When we go up on the roof of our home, we put on Shoes For Crews. When we go to the pool to swim, we use our Shoes For Crews. Many a time, I've watched people slip around the wet, concreted pool as they walked from one point to another. We don't slip at all. Plus, they wear really well. The shoe lasts under hard wear for a couple of years--and their comfortable.
