Hello All,

I'm looking to buy a pair of black loafers for the coming school year but I have had some trouble finding what I'm looking for. I will wear the shoes at least 3-4 days/week. I have to walk between classes on a huge campus so I will be doing some major walking on them(couple of miles/day). Style wise, they should be dressy, but not formal...something that I could wear with gray slacks or jeans. I've found what I'm looking for style-wise, but not practicality-wise.

For instance, I really like these:

but I don't think that they will last very long with my walking.

This, in my view, is the perfect shape and sole combination for my style:
I would buy these in the blink of an eye if I could afford them and if they were black.

SOOOO, my question is, with a budget of $250, which shoes would you recommend that have that "grainy" leather look(not necessarily, but preferred), can be used daily, have a heel, and are good quality?

hi steven..thanks for the suggestion! I checked them out and they seem like a great pair of dress shoes, but I think I'm looking for something a bit more fashion-forward, any suggestions? maybe something with a bit more elongated shape? thanks!
although i've lived in ann arbor for 9 years, and was a freshman at um last year, i completely forgot about boots lol. I'll think about that when the snow hits, as usual. I concur, zingermann's is THE spot for good food. I've been to Van Boven(the store that you mentioned) but I like shopping there for ties more than anything else. I'm a pretty slim guy (5'10, 145) and I have trouble getting anything to fit me well.

As for the shoes, anyone's opinion would be appreciated! anyone with any experience with bruno magli or boss shoes? if you had to pick one of the following, which would it be?(a step past casual, everyday wear)*1*24*-1*-1*6*1*24*-1*-1*5
