    Is the OP Steven Tyler? There's a man with ugly feet.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Work shoes Shoezone. I scuff and bash my clumsy feet multiple times a day so see no point spending over £15-20.

    I just wrap a couple of Greggs wrappers around my feet with elastic bands, usually get a good few years out of those babies.

    I'm after work shoes to be more specific. Work in a plush office so they need to be smart to keep up with the other smart asses around here.

    The ones i have got now cost me 70 a pair from m and s.

    They are burgundy colour but the the top layer has just scuffed off revealing a light brown colour underneath.

    Makes them look like some crazy clown shoes, ill post a pic when i get home :D

    Well, I'd still say Churchs if you don't mind shelling out and you like the idea of a pair that'll last a lifetime.

    Sounds like you need to keep them polished and cared for rather than buy a different pair IMO.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    These seem like remarkably good value for handmade. Alas I don't have any first hand/friends experience to speak on whether they are of good quality.

    I do have a pair of these:

    Smart, very comfortable, and of good quality. (I have quite a wide foot and these accommodate very well).

    Used to be Clarks when still living in the UK.

    But now I can't really find a nice formal, good quality office shoe without going upmarket.

    My last pair cost about 250 Euros and I figure the next one will set me back even more.

    Also having an 11 1/2 size foot doesn't help in terms of shoe availability

    Still have a decent pair from M&S that are holding up but had to have lots of new shoelaces along the way

    Bought a pair in Rome a few years back. Lasted 2 years without polishing before one of the heels disintegrated. (280 Euros)

    Most of the previous pairs were from M&S. (Generally last a year without polish around £50).

    Current pair is from River Island. Only expect 6 months though as leather is quite thin. (£70)

    Once had a pair from China which only lasted 3 months. Leather was so thin they felt like slippers. (Only £12 though)

    Shoes is what I do, so I make my own. If I were in the market for something of the peg though, I'd probably look at Edward Green or Gaziano & Girling, Hermés John Lobb are a little pricey but well made. I'm not too keen on the direction Church's are headed since the Prada takeover, diamanté filled broguing isn't my bag, but they still do some decent standard styles.

    I think we can lock the thread there.

    I was recently shopping around for some boots and had looked everywhere I could think of on the high street and online coming up with nothing I liked. Then I went to Clarks as a last resort. Horror of horrors, do you know what? Their boots were REALLY NICE. Ended up with these : http://www.clarks.co.uk/p/20346751

    Bought 2 pairs of red Herring shoes about 5 months ago. Absolute shite. Both are now falling apart.

    I am a lazy git so I only wear slip on shoes. (As does almost everyone I work with. So it might be an Engineer thing.)

    I cannot understand not doing up the laces provided. If you do not want the hassle just buy shoes that are designed to not need laces. Guess I am probably just old?

    Maybe they never learnt to tie laces
