I have a pair of Nubuck Menichetti's that look very similar to this in a medium brown color. They are taller though. I think that black jump boots or something can be a bit much, but worn with jeans, a toned down designer pair (yes, the imo, the designer pairs look better on the street, though they are not as tough as real combat boots) can look sharp, espexially in the winter.
I have to say that I hardly ever wear mine though. Biker inspired boots (2001 Prada) and zip ups (Costume National 2002) are my go to boots on the odd occasion I'm not wearing kicks.
