What are the best vegan work shoes?

I need some good recommendations on vegan work shoes.

I'm a bartender and I'm on my feet for 8 hours a day, five days a week. I need something that is comfortable and won't fall apart after a few months. Recommendations from actually tried and true shoes would be best. Price isn't an issue. Thanks.

some chefs wear crocs or birki clogs - both vegan and washable.

Can you wear sneakers? Some of the tigers are vegan and they are insanely comfortable.

Not shoes, but I've found Superfeet insoles very helpful when I need to be on my feet for extended periods.

I have nothing to add but: Wow - Zappos has a vegan section. I am rather impressed.

I'm a big fan of Arcopedicos. Basically slippers with excellent arch support, and they clean up pretty easily.
You can't beat Crocs for comfort and price. They last forever if you keep them out of direct sunlight.

VeganEssentials provides Earth Shoes I've liked.

I used to wear Earth Shoes at work, and I found that after about 8 or 9 hours on my feet, my body started to object in many ways. I love those shoes, just not for work.

I'm a big fan of Terra Plana shoes, many are now vegan. They take some getting used to, but once you're switched over, foot bliss is achieved.
