Mephisto shoes.

I had heard that video super-stud Steve Fowler recommended these, so I asked 'what model,' and this was his response:

------------
They will be best pair of shoes you will ever own… and don’t toss them with the soles ware out. You can send them back and get them redone for about $80.00 bucks. I have two pair… Spencer and Gaetan. I just had my Spencers done. They’re four years old and they look great! I got them at Nordstrom and at the Walking Company. Although the Gaetan is a little more stylish I prefer the comfort of the Spencer. I would recommend that you go try them on before you buy them…

They cost about $400.

I used to wear all black tennis style shoes, but decided that they didn't go with my tux. I switched to formal black shoes for a while, but they weren't comfortable enough. My wife went to the local Rack Room and found me a pair of black Borelli loafers. They're leather (looking) and shiny enough to look good with a tux. I wore out one pair (it took a year's worth of weddings) and went back last month for another pair! Besides being extra comfortable, I like the shoe's soles. They have a rubber feel, and a good tread design. (I found that I slipped quite a bit with the formal shoes.) My feet used to hurt most of the day following a wedding, but after losing 45 pounds AND switching to these shoes, I'm on my feet 12 hours at a time with no complaints!

I swear by these http://tinyurl.com/6gr6rq from Big5. I got them about 5 years ago for about $25 & they've held up remarkably well. Very cushy & comfortable.

Anyone who spends $400 on shoes either has too much $$$ and couldn't give two hoots or is out of their mind :)

Many, many thanks to all who contributed suggestions. To the ladies shooting in heels, you have my utmost respect.

Looks like I've got a lot of shoes to try on.

Thanks again,

Kevin
