It's so hard to find good and comfortable shoes that won't fall apart quickly. So when I do find them, I don't mind paying a premium. I don't only shop for pricey shoes as some unbranded cheap pairs turned out to be lasting and comfortable so as long as it fits well and feels comfortable, I don't mind it not coming with a label.
Paying a few hundred bucks for a pair of shoes might seem too much but seriously, sometimes it is really worth it. Take for example, the pair of beige lambskin Mary Janes that I got from Prada, it lasted 7-8 years and I wore it to death till the rubber beneath started to split. The best part, is that it gets better with age.
The shoes (pictured above) look boring, but I was specifically looking for those. Grey no heels boots, nude low patent heels (2 inch), black low heels (2.5 inch) in suede/patent, leather flats with bow. Now you know why I take so damn long to find these shoes! Although, I do get distracted along the way and land up with a few other unexpected pieces :P
