Any goodyear welted shoe that you see recommended on here will easily last 'several' years, properly cared for.

My suggestion is the Loake Pimlico. I own the Loake Kempton, and they're wearing very well. I'll pick up a pair of Loake Pimlico when my cheap chukkas finally give out.

Two thumbs up for the Alden unlined chukkas - just get 'em in tobacco or tan.

Check Bluefly for Church's, with sales and coupons you can get them sub $350, or on stp you can find Trickers for sub $300 on sale. I prefer the Church's, but both are very well made and should last for years.

It's pretty sleek last.
It's a bologna stitch construction which in reality wouldn't differ greatly I don't think from the (gemming) goodwear welt standard in terms of re-soling.

"Sleek?" It looks frikkin elven. Not a good choice for a casual shoe, IMO.
