Tying shoes is hard!

I have a hand injury that means I can't use one of my hands for a few weeks. I need shoes. Help?

On my bike ride home one night last week, I was right-hooked and went flying. Fortunately, I'm mostly fine, save a small break to the second metacarpal of my right hand. Annoyingly, though, that means I can't tie my own shoes.
For work, this isn't really a problem; I have loafers that work fine. But next week, me and mrs. pdb are headed to NYC for a week that will entail lots of walking, and I need a pair of good, sturdy athletic shoes. Snowflake details are few, but:
1. Should be an athletic-type shoe; I wear shorts a lot and my brown work loafers don't work so well with shorts.
2. Should not require tying. mrs. pdb is a wonderful, willing woman now that I'm crocked, but I'd rather not make her tie my shoes every morning.
3. Should not be Vibram Five Fingers or the like.
4. Should be able to withstand an enormous amount of walking and consecutive-day wearing.
Price is almost no object but I'd like to stay below $125-150 if possible.
Does such an athletic shoe exist?
