    I am looking for a pair of casual brown shoes that I can wear with jeans and khakis. Can anybody recommend some shoe companies to see? I am new to the shoe world and am pretty overwhelmed with selection out there (I have been digging through the Comprehensive List of Links to High-End Shoes thread). Most of what I have found seem to be dressy. I am hoping to find something a little on the casual side with comfort in mind, but still looks sharp.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Wait, you smell that?
    I own a pair of Bruno Magli shoes. These particular ones are super comfortable slip-ons that look great with jeans or khakis, especially if you're looking for a shoe without a heel. Plus they're on sale here at Zappos. I paid a little less at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale a couple of years ago, but this is a fair price. The picture makes the shoe look almost black (I think), but it's definitely browner in person - a dark, rich brown. http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/9314181/c/208.html

    The Grenson masterpeice loafers available at Bennies are very much like the brown ones you have shown.

    No offense teddie, but those Maglis are fugly. The Santonis are much more elegant. I still like the boots.
