I used to be a sneaker person, until I was forced to wear Oxfords for a college program (Police Foundations) as a part of the uniform.
Bought a pair of Dakota Tarantula Anti-Slip Oxford Shoes (laced) for $60 Canadian. Broke them in after 4 days of extensive wear and they are by far the best pair of shoes I've ever bought (they match everything! *well, not shorts.. :S, then again, I don't wear shorts*). They are comfy, but a bitch to shine (they're vinyl-like, not leather).
Maybe next year I'll get a pair of real Oxfords that polices actually wear.
I'll post up some pictures later.
