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.
