I have several pair of Ecco's that go back to the mid-90s still wearable and great for increasingly rare black shoe events. I shouldn't need to buy any new ones until I run through bucket no. 1.

I've taken a liking to Keen shoes, especially the closed toe sandals. The styling of the street shoes are a little unique, but they are comfortable. I buy mine at REI and Zappos.

Keen Shoes
Yes, I have achieved work / life balance.

Hmmm - of all the shoe types I've had since 1958(high school) to now my two favorites:

LA style white fishermans boots and penny loafers. I like the looks of L.L. Bean moccasins but never bought any.

DW swears by for buying. I agree that styles these days remind me of what we used to call orthopedic shoes back whe I was in jr. high school.

Personally, I've been living in Croc flip flops, incredibly comfortable. If I have to dress up I'll struggle into my blue suede Topsiders. I do like Rockport and Keen, at least back when I was a shoe-wearing member of society.
