Dressy Adventure Boots

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

At the moment I am looking for a pair of boots that aren't chelseas or dress boots necessarily. I dont want work boots or timberlands. Im looking for a dressy adventure boot, sort of like the indy. I am also looking to spend under 300 dollars, which may complicate the matter.

Does anybody have any ideas on where I should look, what I should go for, or who I should turn to?

I really don't even know where to start.

I've looked, and It mostly just look like slightly nicer timberland shoes to me. Not crazy about them.

You mean Chukka/Desert Boots? You can get Clark's for about $100. Or do you mean something like Jodhpur?

Proud owner of 2 clarks, and a fresh pair sitting in a box in my room.

I'm looking a bit nicer, but same idea"”like a combination between rugged and dressy.

There are some really nice Chukkas out there. Like these Edward Green Cherwell From http://www.leffot.com/ or the G&G Arran From http://www.bespoke-england.com/ But they run more than $300. You can look into Alden's Chukkas, they are around $400-ish I think.

Since the Wolverine 1000-mile and Alden Indy have already been suggested, I'll mention White's line of Semi-Dress boots. Unfortunately, they run roughly $400-500, but the style is a very wearable good middle ground between workwear and dressiness.

I bought my Wolverine 1000 mile for $325 regular. I am sure you can find a better price though. In fact there was a link sent out awhile ago where they were discounted on your first purchase. I lost the link though.

AE Bayfield? $350 but you could wait for a sale.

I second this suggestion. They're great.

I too bought a pair of 1000 miles at regular price. Someone posted this link for seconds a while ago:

I would probably have gone that route if I'd come across it sooner. I'm very happy with my Wolverines.

So you want a non dressy dress boot

Yes, precisely.

The only wolverine 1000 i really liked was the tan austere wingtip one.

If they're your thing, I think roper boots are a really handsome shoe. You can find some pretty good looking luccheses for around that much if you search.
