Minimal and durable footwear for work

I work in a warehouse environment and am looking for a good shoe to wear daily. I have previously purchased a pair or Lems/Stems and the sole began to come apart from the shoe only after two weeks of wearing them for normal daily activities. They were kind enough to send me a replacement pair, but they did the same thing.

Looking for info on a wide shoe that offers a decent casual look but won't fall apart while standing still. I've never owned any Vivo shoes, are they pretty durable?

Vivo's are quite durable, but it really depends on the shoe and what you are doing with them. Have you looked at any of Merrell's options? They are known to be quite durable too.

I hadn't looked into much else after having two pair of the previous fall apart. Wanted to get opinions first. For now I'm looking specifically for an everyday shoe but able to withstand walking and standing 12 hours a day easy. I really enjoy going barefoot or only sock liners when possible. Thanks for the reply, I'll look into the new Merrell stuff while I'm out today.

Hey Daniel,

I bought myself a pair of splitzs some time ago. They look very fashionable and they fit like a sock. It's so comfortable, and i can combine them with a lot of outfits. I think they are one of the more attractive versions of barefoot shoes. I allready even washed them twice at 30°, and they still look new. So i think i can enjoy them for a long time. Good luck with your search!
