What is the noticeable difference between a $100 pair of men's dress shoes and a $500 pair of men's dress shoes? I wear standard, department store $100 dress shoes to work every day (I used to wear Cole Haan; now I wear Johnston & Murphy). When the $100 shoe soles wear out, I have them re-soled. They do end up looking beat-up fairly quickly, even with polishing. I have been told that, if I spend more money on the shoes, they will last longer and the investment will be worth it.

So here are a few questions:
(1) What is the noticeable difference between a cheaper men's shoe and a more expensive men's shoe?
(2) Does it make any kind of sense to spend $500 on a pair of shoes if you wear dress shoes all day every day?
(3) What brands should I be looking for?
