I usually go with the high top Chuck Taylor style and have been through several pairs over the years. After deciding I couldn't make it through another shift with my worn out pair, I went and got some cheap athletic-style non-slpis from the shoe store. When I had saved a bit I decided to get some good looking, not too dressy comfortable shoes. I made the right choice. The boat style makes you feel like captain of the ship. My feet don't hurt after doubles.Super flexible like mocosins. The low tops breathe well and slipping them on and off makes it easy to clean the kitchen gunk out of the soles at the end of the night with the dish pit spray nozzle. Also haven't had too much spill in from 1 or 2 inches of water. They take a little longer to clean up for a banquet, but so does ironing your dress clothes. Worth the exta $50, for comfort alone.
I needed more of a dress shoe than I had been wearing, but the hard sole and steel shank of the Statesman killed my feet. The Edmund was perfect for me! Not too athletic, not too casual, but still a soft flexible sole.
This is by far the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn.I walk about 6 hrs a day 5 days a week & they are excellent.
