    What shoe (or pair of shoes, if we're being pedantic) is your favorite?


    Mine is the Patagonia Tawa http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/...?p=79333-0-602 an odd choice perhaps but hear me out. These shoes have been everywhere with me, hiking up volcanoes, miles and miles of trail and asphalt, and are even my weight lifting shoes. They're still in great shape and extremely comfortable. Plus they can clean up and become a very casual shoe.

    Dress for style, live for results.

    I have a pair of Antonio Maurizi desert boots in brown leather that I got off of Gilt probably two years ago. They are great, especially for Florida. If you wear them without socks its like not wearing shoes at all. The soles are entirely wood and are starting to wear down, I hope a cobbler can do something with them to resole them.

    My favorite pair currently are my Allen Edmonds Verona. They are the best made pair of shoes I have ever owned.

    Three months in, I'm still infatuated with my Allen Edmonds Player's shoe in Walnut.

    My pick is the Grey Canvas Tretorn Nylites that I picked up from J Crew recently on sale. Holy buckets are these comfortable without socks. I just slid in an odor eaters insole and they felt great straight from the get go.

    I don't know if they're still available, though.

    So far my dark brown strands.


    I picked up a pair of walnut McAllisters that look awesome, but haven't worn them out yet. I'm somewhat intimidated by how much attention they will draw to me.

    So hard to choose. I'm going to cheat. It's a tie between my walnut AE Daltons and my blue suede mocs from Oak Street Bootmakers.
