    Chukkas that are just a bit more refined than the classic Clarks DBs, in dark tan. They wont look too out of place in the office with slacks, they look good with jeans for walking around town, and they can work for strolling along the beach with chinos. You can wear them in desert/summery places and they are passable in cold/winter places as long as the sole has some traction and you're not walking in deep snow.

    If I had to have one pair of shoes for everything, I'd got with a simple medium brown boot with a reasonably narrow and tapered shape. Something dressier than a desert or hiking boot, but casual enough to not look silly with jeans. Something like one of these:

    I think they're the Thursday Scouts (chukka) and Captains (6" service boots).

    Correct. I'd been thinking about the Thursday boots because of another thread, so those were the photos that I linked to. But really, any good leather shoe in a similar color would be my "one-shoe" choice.

    Chocolate suede chukkas on a sleek last and a rubber sole. They're about as versatile as it gets.
