Truth be told, I am very anti-sneaker. Most are the generic overly-designed running shoes that everyone wears purely for comfort. Then you get lot's of sneakerheads, skater shoes, and overplayed retro-sneakers that every hipster wears. Though I cannot simply deny how comfortable they are. The only pair I had were Adidas Sambas and I wore them running (long distance, about 30ish minutes of constant running) and my feet were sore for days. However when I used my old running shoes that I used to wear casually, I noticed that they were extremely comfortable. My question is, is there a middle ground between comfort and style? I have a very limited pool of shoes, mostly Clarks and a pair of MJ boots. For the most part the Clarks are alright, but truth be told after a day of constant walking I could do better. The MJ leather boots I wear are extremely comfortable after a few minutes of walking. However when sitting still for several hours I find that they are a little hard and tight so much that once I ended up taking them off. While many dress shoes and boots are "comfortable" to be honest, they are not even close to the comfort of nice running shoes after a long day. So what exactly are the most comfortable "SF-approved" shoes? I ask mainly because I intend to travel later and I wonder is there really a stylish shoe that I can wear all day, every day, is fairly simple/understated, and goes well with tapered jeans? Something I can just wear on road trips or through moderate conditions (some rain, some shine) without worrying about the soles falling off. Something that also won't hurt my feet after I walk around in them all day up and down hills. EDIT: This is also a "What are your most comfortable shoes/Anecdote" thread.
