I bought a new pair of shoes yesterday. Don't know what to call them - moccasins, or loafers - but they were purchased to replace the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.
I'm not sure how long I have owned the dark brown pair, but I did wear them to work for several years before I retired. I have worn them until they are literally coming apart at the seams.
I don't remember what brand they were, or where I bought them, but I am pretty sure the replacements I got yesterday cost at least twice as much.
