I've been thinking about getting a casual boot. Maybe something like this, which which was posted on Cobbler's Web's Instagram

Except, since I'll only be wearing these with jeans and maybe a leather jacket, I would want the last to be much, much rounder/ more casual.

Anyway, is this is a bad idea? Better to stick to dress shoes when going through a dress shoe maker?

It's comin'. Turns out @LA Guy and I may have (surprise, surprise) stretched ourselves a bit thin over the past few weeks, so it's on the late side. Always learning, you know?
