MoL I am trying to find casual shoes that I can wear to the office and am unable to find the type I want. Do you have suggestions?
Let me first provide some context.
Despite working in a corporate environment, I wear jeans and chinos to office about 3 out of five days. So my Lobbs, C&J and Vass come out only half the time..
I am mostly the 'MC type' so SW&D shoes are not what I am looking for. I want 'smart and comfortable' casual shoes but not something that came out of SW&D. At the same time I would avoid suede, bluchers if it is an option (if not then it is what it is).
Let me show you what I don't want to wear: Something that looks like this:
Or, at the other end of the spectrum, something that looks like this:
I am also not really keen on tasseled shoes, and the Yukenet/ Oak Street tyoe of boat shoes.
I will consider the Mark McNary suedes if that's all there is (see below):
But here's what I would really consider buying (based on pics, not actually seen in real life). This was in the Oak Street Bootmakers thread and could be something those guys may have in the future. See the captoe on the left
I could also do the John Lobb 'Winner' range of shoes, but they're much more expensive than what I am prepared to spend ($1k and up). My price range is more $400 and down.
So my questions: Generally, where should I look for the type of casual shoes I want? In specific, do you know where I can presently buy something similar to that captoe above?
