Hi guys,

Any advice for a pair of comfortable yet stylish walking shoes?

I used to wear these Ecco's when on vacation that were very comfortable but they are getting a bit broken down. Even my very cool adidas aren't doing me so good anymore.

Ideally, I could find something in a brown wingtip that was well under $100 and that I could walk in for 3 out of a 6 day holiday. And then another pair for the other three.

Any suggestions? Brands to look at, sites to check? Here are a couple from STP

How about these?
What do you think of these?

thanks,
bob

Rockports will be comfortable for walking, certainly.

Mephisto makes the top walking shoe. Their City line is Goodyear welted, using high quality aniline leather.

Seconded. Rockports were very kind to my feet when on-call in the hospital. Even after 30+ hours without rest, my feet were the last thing to hurt.

I don't really care for the style of the pairs you posted, but I have two pair of Rockports - a lace-up blucher and a cap-toe that are very comfortable when I have to walk a lot.
