    Samba's.

    And to disagree a bit with the guys who say these aren't good for workouts: I played indoor soccer for a few years and always wore samba's. They didnt' seem too bad at all - grippy and fair levels of support. Maybe my arch is a bit lower than most, but I had no problem using them for athletics.

    I like Puma Hesselburgs. Nice leather, and pretty comfortable for a thin soled flat shoe.

    pf Flyers

    They're styled similar to Chuck Taylors, but they have much more support

    Adidas Italia, in white. They're my go-to shoes for most days when I don't have time to think.

    Perforated leather Vans slip-on. No exterior branding. Nice....

    I heard PF Flyers were nice. My most comfortable shoe would be the Puma Cabana Racer.

    from someone who owns 40 pairs of sneakers at the moment and has owned over 100 others, i think the most comfortable shoe I have is New Balance 577. Next is Air Max 90. Also Air Stabs are really comfortable but not as common.

    But for just walking around, I find a perfect fitting leather dress shoe to be just as comfortable.

    Jack Purcell? All Stars? Vans?

    Out of those three I would say Purcells. I hear the CPs are pretty comfortable. I love my vans, but I recently picked up my first pair of Purcells and I have to say they're softer on my feet (although they're a little tight on the sides due to my wide feet).

    Are you guys serious about Sambas?

    The arch in my is about an 1/2" to an inch to far forward, and they're on the narrow side.

    Sambas are comfy if they fit you right. I mean, they're not New Balances, but yeah, they are pretty good. Any shoes that don't fit your foot right are going to suck.

    I have a pair of adidas darogas that are very comfortable.

    Those shoes fit beautifully, and are very comfortable. Its like wearing a sock, a sock with super good arch support.

    I wouldn't use sambas for workouts involving running, but they're excellent for weight lifting - squats and deadlifts in particular.

    I would agree with that. I do wear mine to the gym but one time I walked a mile on the track and I could have definitely worn a better choice of shoes.
