Go to shoes?

Curious as to what everyone's go to shoes are. For example, you're headed out to the movies (or any casual social environment), what type of shoe do you wear? I usually wear plimsoll type shoes.

Casual social/work: Allan Edmonds Normandy Boots.

LOVE them. Been wearing them everyday and all my other boots like red wings and 1ks have been collecting dust

Looks like they’re currently on sale for $330 CAD from $460 on AE. Damn that’s a good deal.

For sports wear/taking the dog on a walk, Nike lunarepics, midnight pack

Image

My current lunarepics are starting to get a bit long in the tooth so I have a couple backup pairs. I’ll be sad when my midnight pack pair is dead though. Can’t get those shits anymore.

What I want to wear but can’t ever find an appropriate situation. My rick cargobaskets

Image

They’re too outrageous for most events. Gotta get some use out of them. They sure as hell cost me enough.

Shouldn't you rotate your boots and not wear them everyday (and use wooden shoe trees) to improve longevity?

I use wooden shoe trees when not in use. Ideally you should rotate and I do in winter (use my 1ks and red wings indoors and some heavy duty red wings outdoors). But when it's nice out I just rock these every day. If they get worn out I'll just either resole them or get a new pair.

I have several colours of Hush Puppies brogues that I rotate out. Great for Jeans, Chinos or dress pants...and very comfy.

Used to wear go walk too but they wear out too quickly and the styles are usually a bit old school. Now I wear Adidas Ultra Boost, just as comfort, longer lasting sole and trendy sytling.

New Balance 574.
At first, I thought this was a reference to that scene in Crazy, Stupid, Love. But, watching the clip on youtube, those shoes were New Balance 407's.

Yea, for the comfort alone I love Skechers Go. I'm not a big fan of its style but to me if you're interested in going out for casual work like groceries or whatever, then for comfort needs I find them to be great.

How do the lunarepics compare to ultraboost in terms of comfort?
