Now, I have a pear of Johnston Murphys. I love them.

Nice, had a few pairs that I liked back in the day, but I find them to be a bit clunky and it's hard to find 'em for less than $100.

Got a pear of them a couple years ago on the cheap, had them since ;)

i have had a really hard time finding comfortable dress shoes. I have only found one company that i like for shoes- Keen, they don't make anything to dressy though. Anyone have any other ideas. Must be relatively inexpensive- max $85ish. Don't care if they are slightly nerdy, but not too bad.
I found ferragamo and Tods to be very stylish as well as very comfortable , prices have bin going up lately to retail $600 ish however on Nordstrom yearly sales and blue fly u can usually get 40% off,
And u can always bring it back to get repaired usually free , and look like new

That's kind of expensive in my world. Anything above $100, now a days I don't look out.

What do you mean by repaired I bought 2 pairs of ferragamos last year and they were great about returning one that became really uncomfortable but I'm finding the second pair is fading badly after a year which upsets me for a $500 pair of shoes.

It depends on the structure of the shoe. Cole Haans loafer literally in a month and half. Some better than others.

I had a pair of cole haan loafers, the fronts got torn thru in about a month. now i have a pair of cole haan / nike air for shabbos (not loafers) they look good and i have had them for a couple months and they are holding up nice. for walking they are very comfortable but for standing the whole "nike air" thing doesnt help, although they do feel a bit better than regular shoes.

+1 for their shoes with Nike Air soles (they have dress shoes with that sole as well), though it's hard to find a nice pair in your size for <$85.
yea I had a pair and they lasted me a while. I am not so hard on my shoes. I have Ted baker shoes for shabbos that are very comfortable and got them for $100 on gilt.

I've tried many different companies including Cole Haan, Ecco etc. I bought a pair of Magnanni shoes from Nordstrom. The most comfortable pair I ever had.

I have a pair of those. Not bad but the fur got all gross, and they're as wide as Mickey Mouse shoes:P

Coke Haans are pure junk. Comfortable, maybe for ten minutes. My pairs ripped up so fast. The last pair was my first pair of shoes that had a hole right through the sole, and this is after only 2 months.
