I'm a college student studying finance and accounting and am starting to build my professional wardrobe, and have a question regarding shoes. All the dress shoes up until now have been hand-me-downs from my dad, which were sufficient for the handful of times each year I had to attend a banquet or other trivial event. However, now I would like to purchase a new, decent quality pair that can last me a few years and double as both an interview shoe and a shoe that I can wear to my internship/work a few days a week. I know that proper care dictates letting the shoes rest at least one day between wearings. Fortunately my dad just gave me a nice pair of black slip-ons that will suffice to wear to work, but they are not nice enough for wearing to interviews.
So I'm looking to purchase another pair that I can alternate with that pair and can wear to interviews. I'm mostly looking for advice on what "style" of shoe I should be looking for, ie. square vs. rounded toe, shiny vs. not, etc. Although if anyone has a particular shoe in mind feel free to list the name and I'll look it up. I had picked out this pair http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/product.aspx?pid=38229&search=melton, but my dad said they are too formal to wear to work on an almost daily basis. I trust his judgement, because he's been successful and dresses very well, however he's not as knowledgeable as people on this site and I'm looking for further advice.
I appreciate any help!
