    From these two I would go for plain too. (But really, I would add some money and go with Meermins).

    I think I prefer the lug sole, as this is supposed to be a casual shoe for jeans. The leather soles are hard on the feet, and I don't need that all summer long. The formality of clicking along in leather soles clashes with the casual jeans, and is one reason I am looking to replace the dress shoes paired with jeans.

    I went with the plain toe for $74 at LE.

    I have them and the suede as well as the construction is very cheap. I would rather spend more and get some Alden or something else that will last > 1 season.

    Maybe these?

    Good luck!

    "Any shoe under $250 will explode in 1 year" is a SF myth that exists no where else.
    I have a pair of beater $90 J&M's that take all the extreme weather abuse, and they are going on 10 years...
    The LE will last more than one season. They will last 5-10.

    The blue Land's End suede bucks are a home run.
    For $75, it was a no brainer.
