I'm not ready for a relationship, but I will commit to a pair of shoes.

Can you help me buy comfortable but stylish shoes?

I rarely buy new things, especially good quality, expensive ones. Basically I'm a cheap-ass with punk tendencies. I normally shop at thrift shops.
But my poor little feet are covered in blisters. I have to walk a lot to get where I need to be, and I don't have a decent pair of shoes to wear. I want to buy something that I can walk km's in every day that will last me for years. They have to be sexy enough that I can wear them every day and not feel like a schmuck, though.
I'm looking for suggestions. I've considered getting boots like Doc Martens. Are they comfortable? Do they have good arch support?
I'm also open to sneakers. Are Converse good quality, will they last a long time? Also, which companies are the least assholish?
I'd like to avoid looking sporty, or like a teenaged boy. I'm female, 24. If I could find some kind of extremely comfortable, and not at all fragile, leather boots, that would be amazing. But keep in mind that I am a cheap-ass and anything more than $150 seems unbelievable to me. It's also because I'm really absent minded and if I buy something nice I will lose it in a matter of days.
