    The toe shape, the finishing and the crepe soles combine to make the suede chukka very casual.

    My own preference for a work chukka would run toward something with a leather or Dainite sole like this:

    Out of the two you've chosen here, I'd go with option 2 for casual office wear.

    The big issue is the crêpe sole. Generally, you want a more structured shoe for work.
