Please help more fashionable bees:

In desperate need of a loafer type shoe (or more stylish suggestion) to wear with work pants. I am 5'9 and a teacher, so on my feet most of the day and never, ever wear heels. I would ideally like something that will last, but also don't want to spend a ton of money because I am really hard on shoes and they never seem to last. Any suggestions?
