I am slowly starting to switch up my style from Dunks and that style to more casual stuff (Vans, Keds, etc). I don't want to buy just Vans Eras though. I want to have a wide variety of brands to wear really. I like stuff like Common Projects but frankly don't have that type of bread to drop on shoes. I'm looking for casual/dress type shoes in the $50 to $100 range that can go well with just about anything.

Keds, Sperry, Sebago, Clarks for your deck shoe and boot needs.

As for dressier shoes, try something Rockport or Steve Madden for sub-$100 jawnz. It's pretty hard to fuck up a classic shoe like a brogue/oxford if the materials are decent. There's little to no branding on formal shoes, so it just comes down to quality/feel.

Dress shoes aren't worn as often as casual shoes and are maintained with polish/protective agents, so it's easy to find nice second-hand leather shoes. Older shoes were often made with more care and better materials, and most can be resoled if need be. If they get too beat for formal events, they migrate nicely into casual wear. A pair of semi-beat wingtips in red/orange leather with an absorbent insole are nice in the summer time.

I would say invest your money in a pair of Red Wings boots. I only have two pairs but they're timeless and extremely durable (will last years upon years if your shoe size doesn't change). Clarks are awesome too but alot of the pairs I've purchased have been suede which get dirty rather easily.
