I know this is a relatively common thread but I need footwear advice.

I'm in my late 20s now and I need to stop wearing trainers so often, but I'm a bit lost about the vast spectrum between Adidas Superstars and my work shoes so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

You just can't get away with what the yoot are wearing. A pair of these look smart in jeans and wont have anyone thinking you are mutton.

Shoes wise I recommend these. They go with absolutely anything.

Also, I'd say fuck what ever age you are just wear what feels comfortable. If trainers are it, find trendier/more formal examples to wear outside of events where shoes are a neccessity.

Anything other than trainers will be so fucking uncomfortable.

A nice pair of brown suede loafers.

I'm in a similar situation (except in my early 20s). If I spend between £50-£100 on 'smart-casual' leather shoes how long can I reasonably expect them to last?

Years, mate. Assuming you don't wear them every day and look after them properly, keep them water tight, etc.

Hate to give such a vague answer but it really does depend on the manufacturer. Some right crappy shoes can find their way into high street shops so it's always a gamble unless you look up the make and a few reviews. Some very average black Oxfords I got from Marks are still going strong after two years or so and only cost £50. I've been told Stacy Adams boots/shoes like the ones pictured are very durable and are floating around online for £60 - £90.

If these are too formal for your tastes, I'm sure you can't really go wrong with Clarks, whether it's their desert boots, Chelsea boots or their various permutations.

I really want to post the Limmy 'smart-casual' video again but think it might be overdone. Mainly because I've been posting it too much.
