    ^Nopes. You need to downsize 1 notch (at least).

    I wear 9.5s on sneakers like Nike Free / Chucks, so on LunarGrands, I wear 8.5s.. but for Tod's and any other driving shoes, I'm 8. Best to try them though... if you're located somewhere in the North, there is a Tod's store in Greenbelt... if you're in the South, there is a store that sells Tod's in ATC.

    A little further north, there is a small Tod's store tucked inside Rustan's Shangrila. :) They have stuff on sale at times, and I've gotten lucky with that particular branch a few times.

    This is what I got a few weeks ago for daily office wear, typically to go with my white polo barong and gray or dark gray pants. Like you said, step-in, rubber Vibram soles, extremely comfortable, all-leather otherwise, no fuss--a pair of Rockport Modern Venetian loafers with classic clean lines:

    Set me back about 6K with a small sale discount at the Rockport store in Greenbelt. Impulse buy, but no regrets ;)

    Let me introduce you to my new friend, the Adidas Consortium x Haven Ultraboost Uncaged Triple Black

    You can go to Besa's in Trinoma. Or head down to Heel Sew Quik in Sm Mega, they have a wide range of leather care products.

    I always clean and shine them myself but I have to allot the weekend morning to do so. Having 9 pairs of shoes and couple pair of boots, it's no easy feat :(

    I moved away from Kiwi shoe polish and into shoe creams that matches the color exactly, like black, tan, chili, bourbon, etc.

    These are the creams that I use. I tried searching and found it in Amazon.

    It's being sold in a nearby shoe repair shop here for $8.

    I have something similar with Clark's. I also wear it for everyday work. So comfortable to walk in. I'll never go back to wearing those hard leather shoes. Only if needed. I remember going to a convention in Macao, using the hard dress shoes and walking around across the hotels in the strip. At the end of the day, It felt like my feet was on fire.
