Hydrogen-1 is a new brand of Italian made shoes that balances absolute comfort with just the right amount of dressiness. They're comfortable without being clunky + old-fashioned and fashionable without be incommodious. Most models will be just as at home in a stuffy office as they would on a Sunday afternoon off, meaning you'll get a ton of wear out of each pair. The sole is comparable to what you'd find on a sneaker, minus any kind of over-stylization or ugly logos---while the upper can compete with the finest of dress shoes. Boring traditionalists might look down at the idea of a "hybrid", but a forward thinking gent like yourself can certainly pull this look off. Available here with prices starting at $275.
