In college I bought a pair of Michael Kors, gold lame, loafers that I sincerely adored. I wore them all four seasons and loved them to death. I only parted with them when the holes in the soles were larger than what was left of the leather bottom. Literally, I could no longer leave the house with them. This brings me to my next shoe of choice, goal boat shoes from Sperry. The only problem is I can't decide which I like better!
