I'm looking for my first pair of boots (mmm, well I've got some Clarks DB) so I guess it's second pair of boots. I have $200 gift card from amazon and I'd like to keep it below that. If I could I'd get AE Dalton (which I love) but can't afford them, Alden Indy are also nice.
I've seen these Massimo Matteo Wing Boot and Thursday Boot Company Diplomat (similar to both models previously mentioned) but I have no idea if they will just fall apart after a couple of months tbh. I work at an office (programmer) and drive my own car to work so no much walking, however, I will probably wear them on weekends which do involve a lot of walking. I was considering Chippewas Rugged Handcrafted Lace-Up because I've read nothing but great reviews from them but they are not as dressy as the others although cheaper.
Thanks in advance!
