Paul smith Grands, Alden longwings, and old florsheim imperials all look similar to the above shoe.
Do you want longwings or other types of broguing?

Here's the only pair of Margiela side-zips I've seen that don't have that cuban heel (which I can never get past). Yoox has 'em for $580, but only size 12. Nice silhouette indeed.. wish they had some in a medium brown leather:

i have similar pairs of both these side-zips and i love both. i got the moma's for around $80 from the b+s forum and theyve held up well over the last year i had them. they have a very slim profile and i'm pretty sure theyre reasonably cheap if you find them on yoox, somewhere around 150-250.

the margiela side zips that i have are cap-toe and not as slim as the MoMas, but they are seriously sooo nice. i'm afraid to wear them and beat them up because theyre too nice. i got them new for 250 off ebay. pretty much its just a searching game, i'm sure you can find similar pairs for cheap if you search hard enough.

Can anybody help with ID'ing these boots, as worn by Hugh Jackman in London a few weeks ago?

Note the relatively low profile toe box, minimal cap toe detail and single, wide lacing hook.

I really want these, but for ¥46200? Naaaah...that's just way too much.

I don't follow Alden too closely but I think those are the suede Pitts, Leathersoul has/had them right.

Googling around leads me to believe they are "plaza" not "pitt"? Apparently they are sold out at leathersoul. Any suggestions for similar looking boots? Those are really nice.

3. Under $300 ( open to using coupons )
Currently like these because they are a bit distressed/more subtle, but are around $450:

What other options might be somewhat subtle / dark brown / distressed for jeans wear?

Not distressed, but Florsheim Veblen:

i am not sure if there is a better quality/style with a diff brand

Awesome Tellure, I saw the Florentini+Baker boots at a Barney's Warehouse sale but opted for a pair of MMM sneakers instead. I like the lighter colored Paul Smith boots as well too, but I'll probably try to wait it out and see when I can buy it at a more reasonable price.

Ideally, I'd like to find a pair of the F+B in that same brown color you posted for like $300ish but I probably won't have any luck with that.

No. I had a pair of timberlands and sold 'em, not good for winter.

Try Red Wing GTs for study winter boots, they're commando soled etc. I get through Edmonton winters with leather soled boots just fine but most people seem to prefer something with a tread.

Stay away from Timberland.

So how are those Mr. B?? Quality?
And it is part of your winter stable, how do you think they will wear? Last more than 1 season?

like your 2nd pair you picked up. wish it was a tad darker like chocolate

Honestly, based on what I've read about the seriousness of the Mr. B's line and based on what I've seen from the shoe since having it in my hands...I expect these shoes to last me for A LOT OF YEARS.

They are hand made...they're all leather inside and out with an all leather triple sole. Plus...I asked the folks at Aldo, "What would my options be if for some reason I take a chance on this shoe and the leather comes apart in a year?" They replied, "Just bring them back in and we'll give you a new pair at no additional cost."

175 seems a bit much for winter boots, ESPECIALLY if you live in Canada..
