    Working as a chef!

    I have had a pair of vibrams for a while now, but when it comes to work I need to wear non slip shoes in the kitchen for safety or is there something else out there to wear.

    Yeah, mine seem pretty sturdy. Have you tried Vibram KSO Treks?

    i've got the kso trek so perhaps it's not a good comparison if he has one of the lighter-weight soles

    What about the safety issue, hot oil splashes, dropping of knives etc ?

    I think there are some leather KSOs that might do the trick, or there used to be

    There are also vibrams for watersports. Look at the flow.
    Quote from vibram site:
    "
    Whether ChiRunning in colder temperatures or crossing a stream with your kayak, the FiveFingers® Flow provides comfortable protection. A 1.2mm Neoprene lining and 2mm EVA footbed provide the thermal insulation and protection. And our new IdroGrip performance rubber (available only in black) is razor–siped for added slip resistance over a variety of surfaces."
