A: Thanks for writing in, Seth! I agree with you that boat shoes are a little too casual for your traditional suit. Since comfort and affordability are your main concerns, I've chosen a few options that are more relaxed than a traditional oxford, and, they're all versatile enough to work for the wedding and beyond.
Of course, you could always go traditional and opt for a brown oxford. But, if you're willing to add some unexpected flair to your feet, these are good choices. The boots (usually $178) are even on sale for $79!
