Loafers might be your best bet. They can be older but sophisticated.
too much risk of looking like a typical OC persian man

that falls straight into stereotype

Aldo has a bunch of semi-casual dress type shoes that are cheaper. If you want to spend more $$$, go to Nordstrom's. Their customer svc/shoe dept is great.

Aldo is not the most comfortable, but they are not uncomfortable either. I find Kenneth Coles uncomfortable.

There's an Aldo @ SCP and Crystal Court. I think the Crystal Court store has some of the older stuff so it's a little cheaper. Steve Madden type shoes might have something you are interested in. Robert Wayne Footwear boutiques (Main Place? The Block, Westminster mall) have the casual type of dress shoes if you want to push the limit of casualness. Nordstrom if you want to spend more than $100.

I'm into comfort, but I'm on the move a lot in the office (when not posting).

Clark's makes really comfortable shoes. So does Rockport but they are for old men.

Oh yeah that too. You are too impatient for the mall. Try Nordstrom Rack.

Think of something all black.

Nabil, try some Eccos, very comfortable, a bit pricey but they have a lot of pairs that look nice. Can you get away with a black sneaker at work?
ohh god i can attest, i have always used Geox or Ecco for my work attire. the Geox let your feet breathe, but i could walk all day in manhatten in my eccos and be more than comfy. get some.
