What's the best black dress boot I can get under $150?
Hmmm... what are the size, criteria for acceptability, etc...?
I wear a 10.5 in Converse and Vans. Black leather, with a cap toe or mild brogueing. The Goodyearwelt subreddit took less than kindly to me. If I'm ordering them, I'll need them before Friday, the day of the banquet. If I'm wearing a tie, I'll wear these. If not, my chelseas
Well, you have asked a nearly impossible question. You can get cheap, or good, or fast, but not all three at the same time. My advice would be to just wear your chelseas. For the future, look at Meermin. No, they are not $150. but $250, but they are about as good a price as you are going to get for a decently made boot.
Thanks LA. I'll just save up for some Aldens next year
I would do that. But... since I am glutton for punishment, these are some cheap options that will get you through the night (and maybe not much more):
Honestly it's fine. I have my chelseas
When it comes to black boots I prefer Timberlands. Classic.
there's a whole article on how to style them: Black Timbs: Timeless & Versatile
hope that helps
It is a little above your budget but the Sanders patent George boot is stunning and is hand made in England and built to last, I love mine.
Thanks for the advice. The event is today, I'll just wear my chelseas and no tie. I'm going to save up for Aldens
