What are you wearing on your feets?

I have a lot of shoes. Not because I'm one of those divas, but because I can't seem to throw them away and that's coming back to bite me. A couple of days ago I wore my pair of medium brown SAS shoes to work. They look practically new on top, but looks are deceiving. I thought I was tracking around mud but couldn't figure where I stepped in it. Then I realized it wasn't mud but that the soles of my shoes were actually dry rotting off. Dang! Then I figured they were probably at least 20 years old.

Then yesterday I put on my pair of khaki colored sneakers to go with my tan knit pants. But I noticed before putting them on that the inside heel is practically wearing through because I put orthotics in them. I'd like to get a new pair but they're cheap Grasshoppers brand and that brand drives me nuts. Their sizing is SO inconsistent. Last time I ordered two pairs (ironically, to replace other Grasshoppers that were falling apart), I had to send both back because neither fit. But I ordered the same style and size as the pairs I had and unlike clothing, shoes shouldn't need THAT much "breaking in."

Anyone have recommendations for some classic tie sneakers? I was thinking Keds but then when I looked it up, Grasshoppers and Keds are the same company. I did order a pair of penny loafers on sale from Lands End last night in a "dark sand" color which I hope will work with both light brown and dark brown pants.

20 years old!! I admire your commitment lol!

For classic tie sneaks I HIGHLY recommend ASICS. So flipping comfortable!

I like comfort, but I need something that looks like this. Something slightly less noticeable as an "athletic" shoe

Ah yes, a little less conspicuous ;) I like my sneakers all black or NEON rainbow colours. There is no in-between!

I loooove multicolored shoes. I have these which fits the bill for looking "professional" but also fit my bill of being quirky.

I need to wear them soon. I've been looking BORING lately.
