I usually spend many hours in the kitchen on weekends. I love my time in 'my office', but man do my feet get sore from standing for so long! I would love to get something that makes the hours of standing a bit more bearable. I've seen a lot of chefs wearing clog-like shoes (and not just Mario Batali). Have you tried them? Is there something else that works? Do you have 'kitchen shoes'?
You deserve a cookie.
