I am looking for something probably in brown that I can wear to casual meetings without having to wear sneakers.
Casual shoe recommendations
He probably means a business meeting. I understand, I do business in LATAM and what he's wearing fits pretty much 95% of the casual business meetings here.
OP, that sort of attire gives you many options. You can get away with almost anything, really. Chukkas, brogues, double monks, etc.

If the Alden is out of you range, might want to try an less expensive welted chukka like the Loake Kempton. ~$215 with VAT excluded
Edit: If it's a full-time office job, then 2 pairs of shoes will be needed (and sneakers probably are taboo). If so, then the more casual pair could be desert boots and inexpensive.
