I always use 20 eyelet Doc Martens. Takes a couple of weeks to break them in, but they are excellent riding boots. Clean them and polish them after riding, and all the extra care will make them butter soft for everyday wear, as well. You can replace the laces with colored parachute cord if you want to get stylish.
They seem expensive at around $170, but they last for years as long as you care for them. You might have to replace the zipper after the first year, which is cheap. Considering a nice pair of sneakers is $70 and lasts 3 or 4 months, it's a great deal in the long run.
