First post and thread.. way! Anyway.. off to the point of this. I need help with choosing some shoes. I'm currently wanting to transition from tennis shoes to something more.. appropriate/suited to my current attire. I don't wear suites and the most I ever dress up is something most people would consider business casual. In fact.. that's all I ever wear for the most part. Slim fitting pants and a collared shirt. Occasionally I wear jeans and plain t-shirts as well.. but that is rare. Tennis shoes just don't look right to me anymore. I've been wearing chuck taylors my whole life (Seriously.. I was 10 when I first started wearing them).. and honestly.. I'm just sick of them. So I'm looking for some casual looking but yet dressy if needed dress shoes/boots. I'm pretty open to anything but flashy is not my thing. I really enjoy very plain yet stylish.. if that makes any sense. Now I'm new to this obviously.. so I need help finding a quality pair of shoes/boots. The main reason I'm sick of tennis shoes is they never last anymore than a year or so. I need something that will last. I have found some shoes online that I like the style of.. but I am not sure of the quality. I know these shoes aren't favorites around this place.. first one is Clarks burns easy.. and the second is J&M burchfield... but they are just examples of the style I like. I like the burnished.. worn in look.. but it's not necessary because I understand eventually new-looking shoes will get that worn in look anyway. Also not really into super shiny.. but.. maybe that's something that doesn't even matter. Money isn't so much of an issue if it's something that will last a while.. but the cheaper the better for sure! I need help.. is it obvious?
