I don't know if you are familiar with Zappos.com, but I get their shoe digest via email and people are constantly asking questions like this and responding to each other. I love shoes.
That link will take you to the page where you can either subscribe to the digest or you can search the achives for an answer to your question.
I went to London last year and walked about 5 miles a day wearing Born sandals. I also took a pair of Baretraps sandals, which I'm sad to say have since died and I've been unable to find a suitable replacement. If you are looking for athletic shoes my favorites are New Balance, but I think it's more because they have "N"'s on each side and my intials are NN. They do have a roomy toebox though and might work.
I'm a sucker for sexy shoes so I can't help you with any other ideas for comfy shoes. Good luck!
