Can someone help find a higher quality alternative to this?

My shoe size is 11.5 and I have a wide foot. I need really good arch support. The best fitting shoe that I have ever worn would be the merrell jungle moc but they are "too casual" for work. I really like the rusty look of this shoe, but I've seen some quality snobs bash these shoes on this forum. Is there a higher quality alternative with the same look? Thanks.

The now-discontinued Allen Edmonds Malone features distressed leather that may appeal to you. I have a pair and love wearing them. They also came in 3 different shades of brown. You can probably still find a pair online, Ebay, etc.



You may want to check out the Allen Edmonds Rough collection. Plenty of models and colours to choose from:

haha how did I know they'd be allen edmonds? That seems to be the #1 endorsed shoe on this forum. Is there anything a little more minimalistic? Something simple without laces, and with a similar texture.
