"I recently purchased a couple of pairs of Sketchers Alley Cats from Sears on sale.  VERY affordable, lots of good traction/semi-lug sole, pretty rugged and nice looking (I think).  They are just a good practical shoe for the north east,…"

"Ive got these in black and love them. Slip on so they're easy and look great with jeans. Extremely comfortable too. http://www.clarksusa.com/eng/product/escalade/70846 ; Your post reminded me to grab the brown ones too. "

"For the money, I would have to weigh in with a couple of guys who suggested nice, but comfortable loafers. Loafers work year round. Nice looking ones can be matched up with a pair of slacks and a tie for a dress up occassion."

"Haha I definitely would never want to look like that. I was thinking more along the lines of this: This is the look I was kinda going for. That's probably very similar to how I would look"

"Boots with shorts are...iffy.  Some people can pull off the look successfully, and some can't.   Desert boots are, basically, a dressier-looking version of a hiking boot, so with the right attitude you'll probably look…"
