Shoes made for walking

I work in IT so it's generally a casual environment. But, I prefer to stick more on the formal side of business casual. My biggest problem are shoes. I walk 2-6 miles a day and sometimes more, usually carrying a 10-20 pound bag. I've been tempted to grab some hiking shoes from REI that are made for support and backpacking. But I can't handle thinking about how this would look with my business wear. Any ideas for shoes or boots that look good while meeting heavy demands?

As an IT worker myself I have to ask - where does the 2-6 miles per day come in? Is that somehow part of your job? Most people at my office that walk before work, after work or at lunch simply have tennis shoes and then change into their work shoes. I don't see hiking shoes as a solution for the dressier side of business casual. So, if your walking is not part of the job, the best solution IMO is to switch shoes when switching between work and exercise.
