It's been Samba-K's for me since junior high. I tried those Chuck Taylors back in HS and thought they were the most uncomfortable, useless things on the planet. The Sambas are pretty much all I wear besides Docs (work/nicer outfits). Between the Docs and the Sambas, they've been the most reliable, comfortable shoes ever.
And then there was the 7 years in the Corps where I found out Corframs are in fact the worst invention known to man.
EDIT: And Birks for when it's nice outside or around the house. They're comfy too.
