ShoeFilter: Help me find slip-on sneakers with fixed laces

I love these casual men's Diesel sneakers, which are slip-on but also have fixed shoelaces for appearance sake without the need to tie/untie. Unfortunately, Diesel doesn't make them anymore. Can you help me find similarly styled slip-on sneakers that have fixed laces and are available for purchase?

The Physics of Water Pushed Upwards into a Shoe

My waterproof shoes are now letting water in slightly, but the store, after sitting them in water for a bit, says they do not leak. Seems to me there's a big difference between shoes sitting in a pail vs. shoes pounding the pavement. [more inside]

Top quality men's boots

After reading this AskMe, my future men's shoe purchases will all be top quality. With that in mind, I really like these Chelsea-style Allen Edmonds boots (bigger pic, slightly different style), but unfortunately, they no longer make them. Can you recommend a similar boot from a similarly high-quality company? [more inside]

Can these shoes be saved?

My lovely open-toed Camper shoe had an encounter with an unpaved parking lot resulting in a big gouge through the leather exposing the blue foam underneath. I took it took my local cobbler and all he could do was glue the sticking-out bit of foam down so it sticks out less. The blue gouge is still prominent. What can be done to repair/refashion these shoes? Considering DIY options but suspect I'd get better results leaving it to a professional. Pics inside. [more inside]

All I want for christmas is my two sparkle shoes

We are looking for the best shoes ever to give to a 2 year old boy for christmas. the idea is that it's practical for the parents (no shoes to buy for this round!) but that they can be fun enough for a child (lights? other weird somethings?) Shoes must NOT be lace up, bonus points for craziness otherwise. Money is no object, but we will probably spent around $60. Online ordering a plus. Thanks!

Best standing shoes for elderly mom?

Why would he think it's OK to walk through my house with his boots on?

A handyman my husband knows came by today to talk to me about what needs done at our new house. We both came in the back door where I proceeded to take my boots off. He stood there watching me but did not take his boots off nor ask me if I thought he should. He followed me into the house with his boots on, walked through the living room and upstairs the bathroom.

Help me replace my bum-around, easy on/off, handyman shoes!

I have some great shoes I love that are ... falling apart. [pic] Unfortunately, they've been discontinued! I can get something sort of similar but there are still some drawbacks. Diligent searching hasn't turned up my perfect work shoe, though. In short, I want something tough like a work boot, easy to put on and take off (i.e. velcro straps), but with walking-shoe type soles and as light as possible. [more inside]

Dear internet, please find me some shoes

I'm off on a hot-climate-followed-by-cool-climate holiday, and am looking for the perfect pair of women's shoes to sightsee in. I'm also taking hiking boots and sandals, but I'd like an in-between pair for all the rest. Requirements: COMFORTABLE, vegan, rain-resistant (or at least, won't totally dissolve at the sight of a puddle), breathable (for the hot days), plain (to visit mid-range restaurants with a dress). For bonus points: will ship to the Antipodes without costing more than my airfare.

I'm here to buy shoes; I don't need the extended powertrain warranty

Where (if anywhere) can I go in Manhattan to browse a reasonably large selection of high-quality men's dress shoes and try them on in different sizes without needing to deal with any salespeople? A warehouse with a bench would be fine. I am a guy with large but not gargantuan feet if that matters. Thanks.

    Not-too-dressy, sneaker-y work shoes (for men)?

    I love my Camper romeos, but the white outsole is, I've recently been informed, inappropriate for work/with dress pants. I'm looking for a shoe with a similar look/style without the white outsole: more sneaker-y than dressy, but dressed up enough that I can get away with wearing it at work. I really like desert shoes, but they're a bit too large and clunky for me. I looked at Camper's other offerings but don't see anything that appeals; same with Clarks. My Zappos searches keep turning up the same few options. Any ideas on specific models or brands I might be overlooking? Thanks!

    Shoes like Clarks Redbones?

    I have a pair of Clarks Redbone oxfords. They're my favorite shoes, and it shows: they're pretty near falling apart. I went online to order a new pair, but apparently they've been discontinued (tried a dozen different websites, all out of stock, and they're no longer listed on the Clarks site). Is there another line of shoes that is very similar to Redbones that I can order instead?
