I've been wearing Grasshopper Janey shoes-- they're a nice comfortable simple sneaker. The thing is, they've solved their durability problem-- the shoes' canvas used to wear out on the sides near the heel-- this doesn't seem unreasonable for $50 shoes, but my current pair is holding up nicely.
It didn't seem reasonable to reward them by buying shoes I didn't need, and I was thinking about how I could reward them some other way. A little publicity seems reasonable.
Also, the company I found them at is Auditions Shoes. After going to a number of stores to not find comfortable shoes (I'm an 8W, not a very extreme size), I hope to shop online for shoes for the rest of my life. Auditions' return policy isn't especially generous-- they don't cover postage to or from you-- but their prices are good.
