I need new work shoes.
Whats ozbargains preffered shoe brand?
I was thinking something leather that will last a while.
hush puppies - comfortable, cheaper when on sale. Long Lasting is subjective, just ask your partner ;)
Another vote for Hush Puppies. They don't look awesome but they are so comfortable.
I see you are in ACT; surely the home of RM Williams as the default footwear
home of RMW is Adelaide?
The home of the RMW wearer is Canberra
funny you say that because that is definately true but ive never owned a pair. They look too white private school boy for me to take seriously…
I've been buying Ecco - They seem to last alright. All work shoes you're probably only going to get a year out of it. You can certainly wear them longer, but my ankles start to hurt after the heel wears on one side from my pronation….i think its pronation.
I've been wearing Ecco for a few years now but I don't think it's a model they have in Australia. They're actually a hiking shoe but all black and all leather so they don't look like a hiking shoe, they look just look like a chunky, matte, dress shoe. May not get away with it for all situations but for a general office they're not at all out of place but extremely comfortable. I've got two pair and am easily going to get 10 years out of them.
+1 for Ecco. Tried Dr Martens, R. M. Williams, but once I started wearing Ecco's, didn't look back.
Quick tips. Leave office shoes under your desk, and wear sports shoe while travelling to and from home and office. Lasts longer…
Will last 10-20 years and can be resoled, don't let the $400-$500 price tag fool you. They're good shoes.
Dr Martens for me
New Balance Walking shoes….
although I only buy them when on the clearance bench, knickers to paying 150-200 for a pair of shoes to keep dog turds off my socks.
As above… Doc's, New Balance, Eccos, Fitflops (no longer in Au, I think)…
Depends on what work you actually do… Are you standing all day ?
I can't wear formal work shoes. Brooks addiction walker or beast has worked out to be the best for me
Doc Martin's. Comfy rubber soles. Not so great in summer as full leather, but mine last for ages.
A few previous posts like this had recommendations for Florsheim. I have had them for my last few pairs of work shoes and have found them to be good - decent prices on sale, and longer lasting than other brands like Julius Marlow, etc.
buy 2 pairs and rotate usage
