    Next have good shoes for suits and the prices aren't daft so when they do get a bit tired, you don't cry!

    Save the expensive ones for big meetings, interviews etc etc

    and how long do they last?
    Pretty much all my shoes have always lasted years...although I guess it depends on what your criteria are for deciding that a pair is ruined

    After all every time I take stuff to our local tip I see people chucking stuff away that looks in better nick that things I have still in use at home...

    My last pair were Base from er indoors' catalogue, lasted me about 5 or 6 years. My current ones are a pair of 20 cheapies from ASDA that I've had for the last 2 years and when polished come up as good as new.

    Another recommendation for Doc M - they are brilliant. They've lasted nearly five years and are only needing replacing now.

    I have the steel toe-cap version of these:

    Don't really need heavy boots or work-shoes here, but next time I need a pair or two, I'm going to try this place Mens shoes, handmade leather shoes, Italian shoes, Oxford shoes & mens suits at Samuel Windsor

    My Dad got a couple of pairs a few years ago and they looked and felt quite good. I'm a vanilla size 8, so I'm not too worried about width, depth, height, breadth or length or whatever.

    I might have to take a trip down there at the weekend. My feet have shrunk, along with the rest of my body.

    Sketchers seem to last for me, though old army boots last for years.
