    Been looking for a new pair of casual shoes but the selection is really piss poor on the high street, at least I think so.

    A pair of Fly London shoes was the closest to buying but didn't have my size.

    What are you gents sporting ?

    I like New Balance. Hand-made in the UK and individually numbered. Ecco aren't bad either.

    I sport some lovely Ravel leather ankle boots for posh occasions and my black Wrangler ankle boots for work and general mooching around.
    I much prefer boots to shoes.

    I loved my New Balance suede mules? i think they're called.
    New Balance and Acupuncture have been the most comfortable footwear i've owned but they were trainers rather than shoes.

    Do NB or Acupuncture do shoes?

    DVS Rikers for me.

    Comfortable, and they look good. Fairly smart for white shoes.

    I don't tend to wear shoes as much now that its not required for my job. My smarter shoes are by Patrick Cox and they are very comfortable.

    Casual shoes? Are there such a thing? Trainers or boots imo. Shoes are for the office.

    Absolutely can't stand trainers/sneakers/etc. Unless I am doing sports.

    Always wearing leather shoes.

    Shoe is a shoe to me. I don't mean shoes for office or suits.

    I currently have Vans but might get something a bit different, casual sort of leather shoes.

    I like these fly london ones

    Ah, so more like a casual trainer than a work shoe?

    DO you happen to own a lot of black t-shirts with metal bands on them?

    Maybe the people in this thread do not know where this thread is. Should they follow you on your way out of this thread?

    In all Clarks shops. They are the most comfortable shoes ever, they really are. Get suede. Although the leather ones are very comfy too

    I tend to wear DC or Etnies. Can't beat skate shoes for comfy wearing.
    For the office I wear Clarks active air. They are airport friendly, what ever that means. Also very comfy.

    I usually end up buying Clark's desert boots. Mostly because I can get them in my size, since most other shoes are made for midgets.

    I'd like a pair of these, but they are prohibitly expensive.

    It's just my feet that lean left. The rest of me fight them at every turn.

    46+, depending on the make of the shoe. Normal mens shoes usually work just fine, like Clarks and Crocket & Jones, but there are several brands that don't go past 45, which usually is too small.

    Camper are pretty good. Should also get Warlock excited!

    Those big rubber soles look a bit daft.
