They have a line of dress shoes with slip resistant bottoms for around $60 I think. You can google them and they'll pop up. My first pair lasted about 9 months, although they were looking pretty bad by the end of that time and should have been replaced a month or two before, but they took some beatings and I never took care of them so they are good quality for what is sounds like you need.
Yeah, they offer Shoes For Crews at my job too. I wonder if we're talking about the same place. Either way, I've heard some pretty bad things about their dress type shoes, though never anything bad about the sneakers. I figure if I'm going to spend 60 bucks, I may as well put down another 40 and get shoes I could wear somewhere other than work at least once in a while.
