/ rock shoes for a crusty!
Scarpa Vantage - very comfortable shoe, currently £35 at Go Outdoors
Maybe have a look at decathlon Quecha shoes(when I last looked they wer cheap, but still pretty good and in a range of styles)
Yes, Boreal Jokers seem to be great all day shoes and fine out of the box. Only question is how durable but they have a lot of fans. I know people who climb pretty hard in these yet you can definitely use them as an all day trad shoe and find they suit 'sensitive feet' ;)
I'd just put in a word against the Quechua shoes from Decathlon - I'm not remotely convinced by the rubber on my pair (not sure if they use the same rubber throughout).
