Hi, I know this isn't Honestforum, but bear with me.

I'm a college student who has for the most part worn Dr. Martens shoes for casual use for the past six years. I still love my Docs, but I'm getting sort of tired of the same look.

I find some Diesel shoes I really liked, and lo and behold, Diesel sucks at shoe sizes.

So... anyone have any suggestions for good dark brown/black casual shoes? I liked the Remy and Lani styles from Diesel. I also have seen some Lacoste shoes I would wear, but again, no size 14s.

So I'm looking for some comfortable casual shoes in a dark brown/black in a size 14. I'd like to stay under $100.00 as well, with 130-ish as the absolute maximum. I am also not a fan of Converses.

Help? :p

. I don't even want to know how big they would look at size 14. I know your choices are limited man, and I feel your pain. I'll see if I can find you other things to consider. EDIT: Onitsuka Tigers come in size 14, in a wide variety of colors. While I personally feel the shoe is somewhat juvenile, they seem to be somewhat popular. EDIT2: PF Flyers and Adidas Rod Laver would be two other good choices. EDIT3: Vans sk8 hi EDIT4: I normally don't really think of Macbeth as cool, but out of all the brown or black shoes that come in size 14, I think these look good.

Provided you are in the US, Camper Pelotas may fit the bill???
These and many other variations are available in size 14 at ZAPPOS. A very tired look in EU, but you should be safe in the US. I've been wearing the pair pictured below for... uh... almost 3 years????!!!
A good value, in other words... Good luck.

Jean: No such luck with Lacoste or Diesel in 14.
