Large selection.
Wear very well.
Extremely comfortable.
Can be refurbished.
I love mine.
You will hate the $300+ price.

I would try something from Ecco. When I found them on sale at Nordstrom, went back and bought 2 pair in every color available. We had one of those “superior products” threads on this forum and several posters chimed in on Ecco shoes. You’re gonna have to spend more than $65. Another one I really like that’s hard to find is French Shriner but it’s a loafer.

Soo, shoes are a blow that dough category for me on occasion. I believe that a man must have the proper footwear for the task at hand. So I have boots, flip flops, sneakers, and LOTS of dress shoes.

This is not for my personal comfort, but mearly a means to an end. With that said, I do buy for comfort, and not durability...hard for me to know if it will be durable really.

So, I spend over $100 on each pair of dress shoes I wear. I only wear dress shoes at work or for a formal they last forever. I switch from sneakers to dress shoes once in the office. I've found this method works the best for the 5 seasons I live in (that fifth season is one y'all don't want to experience).
AA (Stock/Bond/Cash ): 96.5/0/3.5% MIX (Small/Mid/Large): 25/25/50% BLEND(US/Foreign): 100/0%, REIT (Real Estate Equity): ~50% of Assets

FIRE in 2031 @ 50yrs old (+/- 2yrs) w/ a hypothetical $2.5mil portfolio, 3 appreciated homes worth $1.0mil and rental income to fund my gap years until RMD. Assets will go to an inherited IRA where I plan on watching the investments grow until I die or the trust gets executed.
