how much will the Alden PTB on the copley last you? If I am right, those are flex welt with the tumbled leather that is super soft. those should be super comfortable.

$255, it says soft calfskin so I assume you are right on that. Not sure on sizing(never tried on alden), I would guess I'm a 10D from the general half size down rule, but that isn't available -but a 10.5C might work and is available in brown. So basically it might be a crap shoot, but it looks like alden has a decent return policy.

Can anyone recommend some A.N.S.I. rated steel toe boots that aren't ugly?

It's sad that these are the best I could find =/.

Considering these so far
alden:
Crepe Plain Toe Blucher from epaulet

Plain Toe Blucher Flex Welt on copley last (decent discount on this model from alden)

allen edmond: Leeds

Mark McNairy 3-Eyelet Derby Black Calf from epaulet (not sure on this one, toe is a bit square)

Loake 205B (really cheap)

Out of these 5, I probably would go with the crepe plain toe blucher if spending a lot of time on my feet. But I wouldn't get any of these for hospital work if I'm spending the entire day on my feet and would get something by Ecco or Taryn Rose or one of those other rubber space-age tech shoes. Comfort would be my only consideration.

If you're mostly sitting down, the Leeds is a decent shoe and the only one of the 5 that I own. But crepe is really nice and comfortable.

Just looking for opinions on which shoe I should buy...I'm looking for a more casual look that's not a sneaker...gonna be wearing these with jeans mostly but maybe with a pair of chinos once in a while.

Good advice, and I'll add Finn-Comfort to the list of shoes suitable for standing/walking all day.

thanks for the advice. For some reason I was thinking that a high quality shoe with a firm foundation, would be better for hours of standing than a cushy high tech shoe.

Liking those topsiders.. I've got a few pairs myself and find them fairly versatile as far as putting together different fits. Not to mention you don't often see ppl wearing them in unique colors. Just my opinion..
