Loding is a solid shoe; bought a few pairs when I was in France, but that's like a $200 shoe, so not necessarily what the OP is looking for. Were it me, I'd go for C&J, particularly if it's possible to take advantage of the depressed euro. I know, they're English, but still great shoes. The men's shoe section at Bon Marche is also worth a look. Not super extensive selection, but pretty wide range of brands.
