like these??

I've gone thru a crapload of those, they are incredibly cheap here, but they last..maybe 3 months

those dr marten brogues look a bit too chunky and cartoony, first thing I thought of was Mr. Noisy...

Another one for the older chaps - centre creases as a rule on all non-jeans strides or was it a matter of individual preference?

Simple rule of thumb: strides without creases look wrong, jeans/greens with creases look wrong.
